    I just (stupidly) tried to jailbreak my iPod Touch 2G with iOS 4.1 with redsn0w 0.9.5 beta 5. And now my iPod won't turn on! The screen is black, and it doesn't even pop up in iTunes! What should I do?!

    *Must have iPod plugged into computer while doing this*

    Be patient, the force restore part may take up to 20 seconds.

    1. Press and hold the home button and the sleep/wake button. (the power off option will appear, ignore it)
    2. When the apple logo appears let go of the sleep/wake button (keep holding the home button.)
    3. After a few seconds you should see the connect to iTunes image (you can now let go of the home button.)
    4. Open iTunes .
    5. iTunes should automatically recognize your iPod once the image comes up, if not unplug your iPod and plug it back in.
    6. Restore your iPod by clicking the "Restore" button.

    Alternate Method

    1.Make sure iPod is completely powered off.
    2.Hold the home button while its off.
    3.While holding the Home button, connect the cable. The iPod should power on.
    4.Keep holding the Home button.
    5.The Connect to iTunes image should come up.
