    You've tried DFU and Recovery, or have you just been trying random combinations?

    And that picture isn't showing up (in the post or as a clickable pop-up).

    Never mind the picture, the device is more important.

    Have you tried Recovery?
    1. Hold the Home button until an iTunes picture with a wire leading to it appears
    2. Restore

    Or DFU?
    1. Turn the device off
    2. Hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds
    3. Release the Power button but continue to hold the Home button until discovered by the computer
    4. Restore

    I find it odd that DFU and Restore don't work as you can always restore unless there is a problem with the hardware (which cannot be affected by any far). If you take it to an Apple Store, a knowledgable clerk would know that what you've done isn't under warranty, so no new product for free. My suggestion would be to continue trying to restore as there shouldn't be a reason why you can't.

    To help diagnose what went wrong in the first place: What version of QuickPwn did you use? Is it a 2nd generation iPod Touch or 1st? This was caused by the use of QuickPwn? What firmware were/are you on?

    the version i downloaded was 2.2 i think. i have the 1s generation ipod touch 8gb. yea, well i downloaded it and a few months later i didnt want it any more so on my ipod i clicked the restore button and it took a few hours to restore then it just froze with the pineapple as the background. and im not sure what firmware is?

    If you're going to use QuickPwn, you should have the device's firmware the same as what the version supports (if it was 1.1._, then it wouldn't of even worked). Take that precaution next time.

    It restored (attempted) and it continued but didn't give you an error (or did you stop it)? Is it a silver Pineapple (it finished Pwning) or is it a cartoony Pineapple (it was Pwning when it was interrupted)?

    there was no error and its a silver pineapple.

    If it's silver, that sounds like it is stuck on boot (as the silver Pineapple is the default boot picture).
    You turned it off (after the restore took a long time) and tried to turn it on again, no? If that's the case, I don't see why you can't turn it off and put it into a restorative mode.

    well yea i think thats what happened and whats restorative mode?

  12. #12
    OK, so you have it stuck on boot-up, that helps. You need to turn it off (hold Power until it goes black), then try (with the device connected to a computer) the Restore and DFU modes and if it's detected by the computer and iTunes, restore.

    Restorative means it restores, A.K.A Restore and DFU mode.
