First, stop shouting. Second, and it's too late, never use "reset" while jailbroken. You will now have to restore to 4.2.1 to fix it, if you can. You have to have your 4.2.1 shsh's saved, if not, you're stuck and can only go to 4.3.

Without shsh's, it's impossible, hopefully the 4.3 jailbreak won't be long.

In the meantime, get TinyUmbrella (http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com) and save what shsh's you can.

When you restore, you'll be restoring to 4.3. Download 4.3 firmware from http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ and shift-restore to it in iTunes.

okok, so I already downloaded TinyUmbrella and Im already downloading the 4.3 firmware from the links you gave, so what's next? how do I use TinyUmbrella? (sorry for the questions im new to this stuff)

(13 Mar '11, 22:25) trebs trebs's gravatar image

Just click "save shsh" in TinyUmbrella. At this point that's all you need it for. If by some chance you get really lucky and the TU log shows 4.2.1 shsh's saved, jump up and down, but don't count on it.

Before you go to 4.3, I'd try rejailbreaking. It almost certainly won't work, but it's worth a shot.
