    1.- Recovery Problems


    Q- Help! My iPod is not coming out of recovery mode! What do I do!

    A- Check the cable hooking up to your PC, if it has damage on it, buy a new one. If not, then just click "Restore" on iTunes. If that does not work, download YOUR firmware version from here- iPod and iPhone Firmware Download, Then hook that up to your desktop and hold shift+click on the "Restore" button. Find the firmware you downloaded. If all these steps do not work, consult an Apple Specialist.

    Q- Help all I see is the Apple logo for 10-15 seconds and it wont turn on! It just shows the logo, and turns off!

    A- It is in Recovery Mode. Just hook it up to iTunes and restore it....Its the only way im afraid.

    Q- My iPod keep's crashing! What do I do!

    A- Your iPod may have encountered a bug in the system files. Check your downloaded Cydia programs and test each one out. Delete them one at a time to see which one causes the problem. If it still crashes even without any programs on winterbaord. Restore it. If you can't, take it to a local Apple store.



    2. JailBreaking Problems


    Q-How do I jailbreak??!?!?!? I wanna have a teh uber iPod!!!

    A- Go here- Download Redsn0w 0.7.2 For Windows & Mac and scroll down untill you see two options for download, Mac and Windows. Download your OS one. Next, go here iPod and iPhone Firmware Download and download your firmware version and device. Follow the instructions on the screen.

    Q- Yea,,, uhh... isnt Jailbreaking..like illegal and stuff?

    A- No its not. It's 100% legal, however, the iPhone is really more "illegal to do" since it could mess up signal towers and crash them (According to Apple) but it's still legal.


    Q- What is Jailbreak?

    A- Jailbreaking is a process in which your "unlock" your iPod to its full potential. Giving you nearly anything possible



    3. Damage Problems


    Q- Yea, my iPod has water damage and it's not turning on! What do I do!

    A- Bring it to Apple. It might cost money depending on what you did with it.

    Q- I droped my iPod touch and it has a crack... But it still functions.. What do you suggest?

    A- I would first restore it on iTunes, then bring it to Apple to fix it, (since jailbreaking VOIDS your warranty)

    Q- My iPod does not turn on at all! What do I do!

    A- Maybe it's in recovery mode, if it is, follow the above steps in the Q-A in section 1. If it's not, try to charge it. If your computer does not recognize it, get a wall charger and try to charge it. If all these steps fail, bring it to Apple.

    4. Cydia Problems



    Q- Cydia keep's crashing! Like OMG what do I do!

    A- Well, there are two possible reasons- your internet is way to slow for Cydia, or Cydia's servers are going under maintenance. Just be patient.

    Q- Cydia is is having problems download programs!

    A- This is common, as Cydia has so many users, just exit Cydia, then restart where it left off.

    Q- Cydia has some programs that I have to pay money for it! Im like borke and stuff but I really want it!! Wahh!

    A- Too bad. Deal with it.



    5. Misc.

    Q- Why are you saying JB is not safe?

    A- Jailbreaking is somewhat "unstable" I don't want to be yelled at from people saying "YOU BROKE MY IPOD!!!!!!!!!!

    Q- Why are you helping us with this EPIC guide?

    A- I feel sorry for all the people who are new to it. And people who have mastered it, don't make fun at the people who don't know much about it. (Remember, YOU were like this at once)
