    all i can tell u is to restore your ipod in itunes, then jailbreak again. if ur using ziphone do the following:
    1. restore ipod
    2. close out of itunes DONT SYNC ANYTHING
    3. open ZiPhone
    4. click Jailbreak and let it do its thing.

    btw ive had problems with ziphone on numerous occasions where ive had to restore my ipod may times. i recommend using winpwn instead.

    this has happened to me before.what you are going to have to do is put it into restore yourself. to do this hold down the power button and home button on your ipod. your ipod will turn off automatically. keep on holding the 2 buttons. when the Apple logo appears let go of the power button but keep hold of the home button. after a few seconds you should see the Connect to iTunes logo. it will appear in itunes and click Restore. if you get an error message like i did, then you will have to download the firmware from here:

    and save it to your desktop. now hold down shift and click restore and then when it asks you to select a file, choose the firmware that you downloaded and it should restore at this point. :D
