    Fucked. if theyre charging, call up a store and they shouldnsort you out. Also would have been a good opportunity for a cloud backup.

    i got my hands on an ok working ipod1 once, from some jerkwad girl,
    and changed the firmware to play nintendo 8bit emu, mpegs, avis, and mp3s.

    it lasted for a day and a half before it self destructed like a mission impossible brief

    I still listen to music on a iPod I bought like 10 years ago, it never gave me up, never let me down, once (not a rickroll reference).

    You'll have to restore via DFU mode..easy to do, do a google search about it or You Tube will have guides.

    looked up all of that and it just wouldn't work.. thats why i took it to a shop.

    but to still have all my numbers, photo's etc is so good, thought they'd have to all go to restore


    clearly not thank god
