i pod touch 8gb

Thank you, Daniel.

Unfortunately, the only way to get out this issue is to restore the ipod to factory settings.

Open itunes in the computer and connect the ipod. Now, on the ipod, press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo. The very moment you see the apple, let go off the power button, but keep on holding the home button for another 10-15 sec.

your computer will now give a message that it has detected an ipod in recovery mode and needs to be restored.

Restore the ipod now and finally select the option "set up as a new ipod".

Let me know if you have any difficulty.

do i stay online?

either way.

If the restore is going to take a long time (you would be getting an approximate time for the restore), you can go offline and come back later.
