    Hello, this is a very easyy fix. I'm assuming you are getting the dreaded BSD Root error. Is that the text that is scrolling? BSD Root Error MD Major Minor with numbers after Major and Minor...

    All you have to do is force it into restore mode and then use Ziphone or iLiberty to kick it into normal mode.

    1. With your Touch connected through USB, press and hold home and sleep until it powers off.
    2. As soon as it turns off, continue holding home until you get the restore screen.
    3. Use Ziphone/iLiberty to kick into "Normal" Mode.
    4. Rejailbreak, but do yourself a favor and stay away from Ziphone. I highly recommend iLiberty and Pwnage.

    A Caveat:
    It may take a few tries to get it into restore mode. You can also try, once you've gotten it to power off, to unplug the USB from your computer, press and hold home, and plug the cable back in. iTunes should see it as a device in recovery mode.
