    Earlier today, on my way to school, I had my Ipod Touch 2G plugged into my car adapter and I was listening to some music. After awhile, the sound started coming out of the speaker of the Ipod rather than the car. I tried pushing it in as I always did, but it kept on. When I got to school, I tried to turn the volume up to listen to a song but every time I touched the side volume buttons, the ipod turned off. This persisted for quite awhile, and then the volume started to go down all by itself. Finally, I restarted it and then turned it off again. Unfortunately, when I tried turning it back on it would not. My dilemma is this: my Ipod is jailbroken, and I cannot reset it because it will not turn on. Also, I do not have my warranty paper or the box it came in. Is it a lost cause?

    Well you should be able to have it serviced based on the serial. Plus since 2G came out in September, it is within the year service period regardless of if you have the papers. If it wont power up at all, even when plugged in, Apple might not notice you jailbroke it.

    Put it into DFU mode, and then do a restore in iTunes and rejailbreak it.

    But you have your other thread about the same subject, please keep the discussion there.

    It's not shown or read in itunes! I can't do a restore because it doesn't have any devices attatched. Mines attatched of course, but it's now unknown and I had it working fine and it was known on itunes and on my computer. If it was read in itunes it would have been working 2 hours ago! I don't know what else to do. Got any other ideas???

    guys,if you have stuff like my ipod,free downloaded music,cracked apps,etc. you could be in alot of trouble if u send it to apple
    first because apple thinks there should be restrictions on ipods,taking the fact it takes so long to jailbreak them,2nd,cracked apps are paid apps u got for free,NOT from the app store discounts,and 3rd,becaue music is suppose to be .99 each,free music is strictly not allowed,thats why im always careful,and always serfch whats wrong,and fixz it

    No complaints about people jailbreaking (it's their device) but why do they always complain when their touch doesn't work properly after jailbreaking ? You jailbreak at your own risk.

    Reboot your phone, or reinstall the apps.

    What happens when you try to turn it off? We can't help you with such a vague description of your problem.

    Try holding down both the lock and home button and it should force the device off.

    Almost the same problem

    hey guys, i jailbroke my ipod touch 2g and got bored of it so i left it unused for a couple weeks. the batter was already drained when i stopped using it. now it won't turn on, it won't charge from the computer or from the wall charger. my windows machine doesn't even make a sound to say it's connected and there is no response on my mac.

    i've tried resetting, going into dfu mode but nothing works. it's totally unresponsive. anyone got any solution? out of warranty by the way.

    i'm at a loss

    ok so yesterday an all of today i've been trying to get my ipod touch 2g to work again. i jailbroke it with blackra1n and its on 3.1.2 firmware if that make a difference. i know about the tethering crap and how you need to press the make it ra1n button again, but its not letting me get passed the face that pops up. i've tryed forced restart but that just brings me back to the screen saying i need to reconnect to itunes. i cannot just hit restore because it says something like it can't be recognized. i've been trying different sites, tons of youtube videos, an none of them helped. is it even worth trying anymore or am i stuck? i would really appreciate and help. thanks
