    Hi guys! I have a problem...never happend before. I upgraded from 3.1.3 to 4.2.1 yesterday and I tried to get my iPod a brand new jb. My power button is broken, not working and I searched some solutions that wouldn't involve the DFU mode. The only way was JailbrakeMe, but i had to downgrade to 4.0. Well, I did the downgrade, I have done this before, but of course, with other firmware, but this time, after i followed all the steps, it's stuck with apple logo and the empty bar above it, like that one on the restore. What can I do? I have to remind that the DFU mode is not working, because my power button is not working What options I have? The device is not jb. Thank you very much and please help me with this one

    It should be under warranty, so take it to an Apple store if the power button is broken.

    It's not currently jailbroken, so no, it won't affect your warranty.

    Hold the Home button while connecting to the USB and it should show you the option to restore your device, then downgrade to 4.0 again
