    Ok, so I just decided to restore back to 1.1.1, kept getting white screens. Finally just decided to restore to iTunes original settings and figured I'd jailbreak again from there. But now it seems to be perpetually stuck in the Preparing iPod for restore.... part.

    It was doing that earlier when I was trying to downgrade back to 1.1.1, but it would just have the silver apple logo and then go to a white screen. Now at least it has the connect USB to iTunes picture on it.

    Do I just wait it out or restart? I've done this about 5 times now (with white screen) this being the 6th time (with the connect picture). Is this just something that's common to have to do multiple times?

    Well, sweet I answered my own question! I just had to keep trying. It ended up taking 8 times. Now it's back to 1.1.1.

    I was so scared I had bricked it cause it wouldn't even go thru with Apple's restore. lol We're good here! :p
