i bought this 2g off of ebay after some lady fried it in her car charger. i replaced the battery and it turned right on! now stupid me i tried to erase everything. well i dont have a sim card nor do i plan on getting one. i was just gonna use it as a itouch. i got to the insert sim card screen with an emegency only call. while i had it plugged in i was playing around with blackra1n and accidentally activated it. so it went through and i saw the picture of the guy and would not reboot so i did it manually. now i have it caught in a restore loop . the screen is always black unless i try a restore and then it goes through the steps and i end with an error. occasionally i can get the reload bar to go all the way through but then it just stays there. did i brick it? if i put in an active sim card would it then work? i need some help here!!!!
