iPod Touch - Freezes at start-up

October 2016


  • Upon turning on my iPod Touch, the Apple logo loads, but then the device freezes for about 5 minutes and then turn off.


  • Open Itunes.
  • Connect you Ipod and press/hold on the Home button and then on the power button simultaneously (for about 10 seconds).
  • The device will shutdown when you release the power button.., keep the home button (only) pressed for 30 seconds and you should normally have the Itunes/USB logo.
  • Itunes detect the device (in restoration mode)..
  • From there you can restore the device to factory settings.
  • You will lose all your data, but still you will be able to use your iPod Touch again.
