    It sounds like you used something that isn't Pwnage Tool to jailbreak it. You need to DFU restore your phone. Plug it into your computer, hold the power and home buttons until it turns off. Then let go of the sleep button and keep holding the home button. Hold it for exactly 10 seconds. If your screen is blank and iTunes recognizes it, restore to 2.0, or 1.1.4. If the screen turns on, you need to try again.

    What did you use to jailbreak it, anyway?

    Probably not. What program did you use? Pwnage Tool? WinPwn? ZiPhone? iNdependence?

    So whatever firmware your iPod was on, I want you to restore to a version that isn't the one you have installed. Turn off your iPod, hold the home button, and then plug it in, then when iTunes detects the iPod, restore to a version of the iPod firmware that ISN'T the one you are currently on. So that means 2.0 probably.

    ok guyz, i managed to fix the ipod:
    i did the same thingas in the begenin ( press the 2 buttons etc) and after the screen went white, i redid the same operation, press the top button and menu for 10 sec, then release top and itunes detected the ipod, and i was able to restore the ipod

    i also managed to pwn it, by using an earlier version of winpwn, and it worked! i know have a jalibroken 2.0 ipod

    hope this info can help

    You CAN'T have pwned 2.0 with a older version of Winpwn, oh and never Pwn an old firmware with 2.0.3
