    my ipod has been acting up alot and showing blank screens when i press the sleep button. I DID jailbreak my ipod using jailbreakme.com appsnap. Now i figured that restoring my ipod via itunes would work but i was wrong. I did the whole "hold sleep and home button till the apple sign come up" and then restore it but when it went to actually restore it it said it could not be restored:error -50. Please help!!!!!

    Are you sure you managed to put it into restore mode?

    Try This:

    1. Turn iPod Touch OFF completely.
    2. Plug iPod Touch into PC/MAC while still of.
    3. Turn iPod touch on, then IMMEDIATELY do the following steps \/
    4. Hold the 'Home button' and 'sleep/wake' button together for atleast 5 seconds.
    5. The Apple logo will appear
    6. When this happens release the 'sleep/wake' button BUT KEEP HOLD OF 'HOME' BUTTON
    7. Your iPod will reboot (Apple logo)
    6. iTunes will recognise iPod in 'Recovery mode'
    8. You will be able to 'restore' your iPod Touch now.

    Time to call Apple I guess... I had the same issue a week or so ago. I gave up and tried again a day or so later and sorted it. Perhaps you should give up for a while and try again later with a fresh mind. ;)
