    dont worry, there is no way to brick your ipod. The actual ipod firmware is hidden in flash and cant be erased. Unless you fried the HD or battery (doubtful), there is always a way to get your ipod back. You just have to mess around with it awhile. I had IPL on mine for awhile, then tried to put RockBox on it and thought I TOTALLY fucked it, but I found awhile to get everything back. Just keep trying to "restore to factory settings" and format it acouple of times, don't worry, you'll get it back.

    i would try connecting it the the computer (using the menu+middle button connect mode if you have to) then formatting, then running an old ipod updater then "restore to factory settings".
