    Hi everybody!
    In short - i got new iPod Touch 4G 32GB with 4.1 firmware from parents at Birth day, but now it's bricked or something... ;(((
    I will start explaining, what actually going on from beginning - I connected it to iTunes, registered, then i made jailbreak with greenp0ison. Then i wanted new firmware, i made 4.3.3 custom firmware, and was restoring... first it gives me error 1600, i used iREB, everything OK for now... But there is one more error - 3194, okay, TinyUmbrella helped. So - i restored, but everytime i turn off iPod it goes DFU (not recovery - DFU!!!). I used redsn0w "just boot tethered right now". It boots, and, when i was doing that again, iPod showed white screen, i used master reset (home+power buttons) then tethered boot redsn0w againg and after that iPod shows me everywhere BLACK SCREEN! when i am restoring - iTunes show me progress bar, but iPod - black screen, iPod restored - but black screen, Voice control working, sound is coming out of iPod when connected, but screen is black everywhere!!! PLEASE HELP ME!!! :(

    P.S. there is no hardware problem, because one friend from other country fixed it somehow, he was having same problem as me here...
    P.S.S. software i was using - iREB (for removing 1600 errors), TinyUmbrella (fot removing 3194 errors), redsn0w (for tethered boot), sn0wbreeze (for making custom firmwares).

    PLEASE HELP!!! ;(((

    oh, yeah, sorry for my bad english

    there is a video with my iPod and what's going on with it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_91yEGFDozM

    Put your iPod into DFU mode and restore. This should work. Why did you make a custom firmware?

    Jailbreak FTW

    Not sure why you created custom firmware... if you were on 4.1, you could have just updated to 4.3.3 using the IPSW and iTunes and then you could jailbreak your iPod by visiting jailbreakme.com. Try putting it in DFU mode and running a restore (which will update it to 5.0.1)
