    i purchased an ipod touch 2/3 g on ebay its an a1288.. it was listed as stuck on apple logo. so when i got it the batt was dead i rechargrd it and sure enough it was stuck on apple logo with loading circle the power button was also very hard to push and i noticed it was lower then my other ipod touches button so i opened it up of course breaking the digitizer and mid frame also broke the lcd tryin to reinstall it after fixing the power button so i purchased a new midframe and new digitizer and the lcd screen. now i have my new parts and installed the lcd and it workds cuz it shows the same freezing apple screen i tried restoring cuz it syncs up to itunes just fine i tried dfu i tried jailbreaking but its still on apple logo although when u jail break u can see it do everything normal so u kinda get excited for nothing cuz it just freezes again afterwards and after a few min reboots and it all repeats i even tried the watchdog trick but nothing i do works. i contacted the seller again by now its been over a month since i have it and he told me he asked his daughter again what happened to it and she finally admitted it got wet:mad: i look in the headphone jack and sure enough its red so i have not installed the new digitizer yet till i fix it any ideas what part is actually failing thats making it freeze? any help will be greatly appreciated

    Any number of things could have been damaged by the moisture. You'll save a lot of time and frustration just replacing it.

    Don't buy broken stuff on eBay.

    Sorry, but it's true.
    I can't help you.
