    Hi guys, first of all, sorry about my english, i'm brazilian. I have an Ipod Touch 5th generation 32Gb (A1421) running IOS 8.1 , and i was trying to eliminate my jailbreak because i was having trouble with it, so i opened the settings, then general, then reset ,when reset all settings, but something unexpected happened, this: IMG_0079.JPG
    You may think, "oh, that's normal", but this image is freezed , nothing happens, i've already tried to press and hold both lock and home buttons for 10 seconds and etc, i don't know what do do, i've been using jailbreak since 2013 or 2014, and nothing like this happened to me. My Itunes don't identify my ipod, but using windows explorer I can access my photos. Please help me, I need it done for thursday, but that's not relevant.

    Rule number 1 on jb devices.
    You never do an erase all or you will get stuck on the screen above.
    Plug it to iTunes and restore it. Do a dfu restore.
    If you want to remove the jb and restore to stock iOS you need to restore by using iTunes not erase all content and settings.

    This is what we call a bootloop and it is a direct result of doing an Erase All Contents and Settings on the jailbroken device itself instead of using iTunes.

    Follow AJ's instructions.

    Hm, but that's a big problem, my itune doesn't recognize my Ipod, and i can't do a dfu restore because my lock button is not ok, sometimes it works, and sometimes not.

    You have a bricked device then until you can somehow find a system that will recognize your device.

    Why doesn't your iTunes recognize it? Do you have a hardware issue maybe on that iPod?
    Try another computer with the latest iTunes installed. If you can't get it in dfu mode then just power off the iPod.
    Have iTunes opened on the computer plug the iPod with usb wire to the computer while holding the home button down.
    Keep holding the home button down while the iPod turns on and until iTunes detects it in recovery mode and asks you if you want to restore it. Good luck.

    It took a month to restore it?
    What was the issue? Bad usb wire?

    My power button isn't working at all, so, i needed to try a LOT of times until both, power and home button, work together. That's why i took a lot of time to do it.

    I needed to wait the Ipod to discharge to try again, and charge it again, i didn't have too much time after booting to try, 10 seconds, or less...
