    Just go to itunes and hit the restore button. It should work, but you'll lose all your stuff, so sync it first, restore and sync again.

    sync the ipod just to loose the stuff then restore and sync again?? isnt that a bit pointless?

    I'd say just restore and sync

    What happens when you restart your iPod?

    you're trying to Restore through iTunes right? cause the only time i've ever seen anything ISPW related was when i used QuickPWN.

    He has jailbroken his iTouch with redsn0w and possibly every time he reboots the device he needs to apply a patch.
    I am not familiar with the tethered jailbreak and how to restore afterwards, but just to let you guys know what it's about.

    Why can't you use a backed-up version?

    if your still having problems follow the steps to put the iPod into DFU mode and then try restoring in iTunes see if that works

    DollarsandGirls, this is what I've found by Googling...

    That means that you will have to wait for a new software release from Apple and your iPod will be locked again.
    In the meantime you can skim through Cydia, there are great things there and if you try them you will possibly come to like your jailbroken iPod Touch (maybe you can't install anything because you don't have an internet connection? The iPod must be connected to the internet in order to install apps).
    Hope this helps.
