I WANT TO KISS THE PERSON WHO HELPED ME SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
OKAY SO I was like ''what is this person talking about?'' I'm pressing all the buttons and it stilll has the death screen. igot really annoyed cos I looked everywhere for it..
I tried everything, but then I reread the post again and I tired it.
my ipod turned off (cos it went reset.) but I tried to hold it for much longer and the apple sign came up and OMFG.
IT WORKS. I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUUUU SO MUCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
THANK YOU. YOU ARE MY HERO. <3<3<3<3<3<3

my ipods screen turned white many times usually when its shutting off from a low battery and at the same time i plug it in to charge it .................... all i did was wait a few hours and instead of resetting your ipod and loosing all the information just wait and it goes back to normal..
