    I feel like an idiot. My piod touch may be completely, utterly, irreversibly bricked. I was trying to jailbreak it using Ziphone. I have the old itunes, so i didn't have to worry about the 1.1.5 update when restoring it. So i was jailbreaking it, and it said wait i think 1 min, 10 sec, so i walked out. MY ******** BROTHER decided to unplug my ipod while being jailbroken. So now, my ipod just has a ton of code on the interface. I try to reset it, by holding down the hold and home bottom until it shows the apple logo, but i do not get the USB cable icon like most people. It just goes back to showing me code. I plug it up, but itunes doesn't see it, and ziphone doesn't pick it up.

    Does anybody have a solution on how to unbrick it?

    restore.

    have the ipod hucked up to mac/pc then hold the buttons down as you did to turn it off keep them held down now as soon as the apple logo appears let go of the sleep key only keep holding the home button till u see the itunes logo with a usb connection and restore away in iTunes

    your ipod was not bricked it was stuck in a loop of code

    In Laymen's terms:

    IF YOU CAN MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR DEVICE, OR IF YOU CAN GO INTO RECOVERY MODE, IF THE SCREEN SHOWS SOMETHING, IT IS NOT A BRICK.
