UPDATE !! i found out how to get it into DFU mode even with openiboot seems there is hope afterall. i will copy and paste the info i used to do it.

NOTE!!! i do not got to last part where itunes says it has found it only this. Waiting for iPod

    * Turn on your iPhone ( doesent matter if you got stock at the boot logo or w/ ever… just turn it on )
    * Wait like 10 seconds or something like that
    * Turn on iTunes and plug in your iPhone
    * Hold down the power and home button ( DFU mode ) for about 7-8 seconds until the screen shuts off . Keep the buttons pressed.
    * Once the screen is off , wait for like 5 seconds and  let go of the power button, but keep holding down the home button for a max of 30 seconds
    * A popup in itunes will appear saying your iPhone is in restore mode and must be restored.

UPDATE 2 !!!! i get error 1601 in itunes after about 45 secs where itunes says waiting for iPod.


cant any play help me from here ? :) would help alot of persons with their bricked iPod Touchs

Sigh...

Original problem: read the FAQ. Read the topic regarding iphodroid and setenv. Link on forum main page.

New problem on DFU: uhm iphodroid fail...
