"erase all content and settings" restart loop
----------->(You may skip the first 2 paragraphs)<---------------------
Hi, not long ago i used Jailbreakme.com to jailbreak a iPod Touch 2nd Generation MC model. Everything was perfect and fine with all the regular jailbreaking stuff. :)
Afterwards, i had an epic issue where all my apps disappeared (that werent cydia/system apps). I believe this entire thing had to do with me trying to install icy from cydia. Earlier i had an epic malfunction with cydia, where everything within it disappeared. I had fixed that by using iFunbox and deleting all the sources which solved the problem. BUT, during that i used APTBACKUP, which "supposedly" saves your cydia hacks/tweaks. After its stuff was finished, i found my self with all my apps missing that werent from cydia or default apps (i.e. Clock Calendar, Music etc...). I looked at my applicatiom list in iFunbox, AND THEY WERE STILL THERE, but not on the springboard :woz:
Then, i tried to "ERASE ALL CONTENT AND SETTINGS" THEN EVERYTHING WENT BLEH. It showed the progress line and finishes, The device starts up and then continues to show the apple logo, and spiny thiny on it, for around 20-30 mins. then, it restarts the entire device and continues to restart again and its loop continues forever and ever. :confused:
DFU mode (10 secs hold both home/power button) just puts it back where it started, into the beginning of the loop. :mad:
Also, the device is not detected by my computer at all at any stage of the process. :(
Please, can somebody help?
