Thread: Way to unbrick iPod without restoring and losing all data?

  1. #1
    Default Way to unbrick iPod without restoring and losing all data?
    Twice, my iPod has been bricked, and I was forced to restore it, which lost all my data. Is there a way to unbrick it without going into DFU mode and restoring it through iTunes?

    It's not "bricked" as this would infer it is completely not repairable or able to be restored. If you gave a bit more info as to exactly how you messed up your phone someone may be able to provide a fix.

    Well, I know it's not totally bricked, I just heard someone else use the term bricked when referring to the iPod being stuck at the Apple logo. This happened once when I installed Winterboard then hit reboot after insalling, and again when I tried installing the NES 3.4 emulator. It's frusrating to have to put all my data back on it and reinstall everything.

    I have not heard of either of these items causing major issues.. especially since both mobile substrate and winterboard have been significantly updates. Nes emulator doesn't even use mobilesubstrate so I can't see how this would cause ANY issues as it has no dependencies. There is still missing information.

    Well, that's basically all that happened, so don't know what else to tell you. Thanks, though.
