    Earlier today, I jailbroke my ipod touch running firmware 1.1.4 with ziphone. Anyways, as I decided that I wanted to restore my ipod, I went back into ziphone and pressed the lock button. While I was doing this, I decided to leave the room and when I was back somehow my ipod was unplugged, in the middle of the process. Now Itunes nor ziphone will recognize my ipod. my ipod says at the end IOIpodUSBDevice :: gated_message cable removed, stopping stack. When I plug it back in it says at the end

    IOIpodUSBDevice ::startIpodstack cant start! need configuration

    any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you for your time

    You probably think your ipod is broken and your freaking out but don't worry. Nothing bad.

    Step 1 Make sure your ipod is on and then plug it into the computer and open up itunes.

    Step 2 Hold the power button and the home button at the same time untill the ipod turns off. (This should take about 10 or 15 seconds)

    Step 3 Leaving your finger on the home button take your other finger off the power button.

    Step 4 Now after holding down the home button for 5 or 10seconds the ipod should appear in itunes.

    Step 5 Restore your ipod and tell me if this worked or not.

    I tried this the other day, and guess what? it worked. I love that itunes has backups of the ipods so that I may retreive all of my settings, songs, etc.
