Well, right now I am pretty freakin depressed because I am pretty sure I just bricked my ipod. Basically what happened was, I had just started updating a couple of apps when I realized that one of them was frozen in the installing state...so I turned off my ipod to restart the installing process. Yea, I know...probably not the smartest thing to do but I had no other choice, it was frozen. Now, when I turn on my ipod it freezes at the apple logo and wont go past it. So , obviously I though to restore it to factory settings...and here comes the weird part. If I try to open up itunes with this ipod plugged in, not only will it not be recognized, it also freezes itunes. So I was angry and unplugged my ipod...and of course for some reason when I unplug the ipod for about a second the picture of the ipod shows up with restore/update page where it shows you memory useage and stuff but it only stays up for a second because I unplugged the ipod. I have tried this a couple times so I know it's not just because I am not letting load for a long enough time. I would soooo appreciate any help I can get, I love my ipod and would be really sad to know that it's dead beyond repair.... please help!!!
