    Have you tried a force restore?
    * Connecting your device to your computer with iTunes open.
    * Hold down the home and sleep/wake button.
    * Keep both held in until the apple logo appears (up t o 20secs)
    * When the apple logo shows release the sleep/wake button but keep the Home button held down. The iTunes logo and a picture of the USB should then show on your touch.
    * Release the Home button and follow the instructions within iTunes.

    I had to do this and restore from a backup. It takes a fair while as you have to resync all media but I've had no problems since.

    good luck :)
