    Default Fix for 'BSd root: md0, major 2, minor 0'
    First off, I'd like to make a statement that I hope everyone who embarks on hacking can come to realize:

    Whenever doing any kind of hacking on your iPhone/iPod Touch, make sure that the computer you are using is connected to a reliable power source!!!
    Also, please ensure that the iPhone/iPod Touch has a substantial charge!!!
    It is important that the jailbreak or unlock or activations NOT be interrupted!!!

    Yesterday I repaired an iPod Touch that was displaying that scrolling white text on the black screen.

    You need to have a copy of the restore file on the computer. Do NOT attempt to use iPod restore files to update iPhones or iPhone restore files to update iPod Touches.
    Manually put the iPhone/iPod Touch in restore mode.
    Make sure you have a 30 Pin iPod/iPhone cable connected to the computer. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home buttons simultaneously until the screen goes black. AS SOON AS the screen goes black, release the two buttons.
    Wait a brief moment to make sure that nothing come up at the screen.
    If the Apple logo comes up or any text comes up, you must do a hard shut down again and release the buttons when the screen goes blank. Do not think that you will try to put the iPhone or iPod Touch in DFU mode because that CERTAINLY DOES NOT WOK!!!
    To continue putting the device in restore mode, simply press and hold the Home Button (NOT the one at the top) While you are pressing the home button, attach the cable to it. DO NOT release the Home button!
    Wait a couple seconds with the your finger or thumb pressing the home button and the cable attached to it. After those few seconds, the phone will display confirmation that it is in restore mode; you will see the cable, arrow and the iTunes icon. Only when you see this can you now release the Home button.
    You may then proceed with restoring your iPhone or iPod Touch.
    Please be advised that ZiPhone does NOT cause this problem.
    Problems like these arise when people want to hack their devices without proper measures. If in the middle of jailbreaking or activating or unlocking the process is interrupted, you run the risk of seriously damaging your devices or even bricking them.
    Please everyone, exercise caution when modifying your devices.
