Oh my god, this has to be one of the best things to ever happen to me!
Anyways, my friends, friend from school, Ipod broke last spring/summer. She couldn't figure it out, and since he knows some things about technology she let him try to fix it. He ended up not figuring it out, and she eventually got a new one. She told him to just keep it. Anyways the other day at his house I saw it and he told me he couldn't fix it. I said I could probably fix it and he said he had tried everything. I still took it and spent like 5 hours on it last night with no success. It wouldn't do the restore thing like its suppose to, and trying many things I didn't fix it. While trying my last way I could think of, which was reformatting it (didn't work btw) I found a hidden partition on it that was like 78mb. I figured I should reformat that, and I did.
After reformatting that it brought up a little apple logo, and I had less options then before, and thought this was the end. So I set it down, and after like 20 minutes it brings up the language selection screen, and I'm going nuts! Luckily my friend lent me the usb cord, and I charged it. It now works fine, and I got a free Ipod
Now I always thought learning about computers now in high school will help benefit my future job, but a free 30gb Ipod Video, this is awesome!
Also, if anyone needs any help with there Ipod, I've learned so much about them. I ripped this a part, and had unassembled most of it. Luckily for me this didn't break it though.
