    I attempted to jailbrek my ipod for Mac OSX. I was in the process and it was taking way to long (10 min.) so i pressed kill. Nothing happened for like 20 minutes so i ejected it. I tried to kill it again and nothing would happen. I can't restore it since it isn't in iTunes. i dont know what i am going to do. someone please help me as soon as you can.


    All i see is text and nothing at all is happening.

    You can try taking it to apple and see if they can do anything. They may not though since you did attempt to unlock it, and that voids the warranty.

    restore it,

    To restore your iPhone or iPod Touch, hold down the Power and Home buttons on the device until the Apple logo appears on the screen (be sure your device is already plugged into your computer, and that iTunes is running!), at which point you can let go of the Power button-- but keep holding the Home button. When you see the "Connect to iTunes" logo appear, you may let go of the Home button, and use iTunes to restore.

    it is almost impossible to fully break your ipod so really not much to get worried over

    Or you can do something stupid and mess with the BIOS. That would screw it up for sure...

    So you did exactly what it told you not to do... what did you think was going to happen?

    I think he/she means that the instructions tell you not to interrupt the process. But as you said, you fixed it, so I'll just close the thread. ;)
