Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Rebooting , part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
If you find yourself in an iPhone or iPod touch lockup situation where you can't get your device to respond to the commands for force…quitting an application or for restarting the phone,…and we did cover both those methods in previous movies,…the next step is to try forcing the device to reboot.…To do so hold on both the sleep/wake button and the home button simultaneously.…Now, even when the screen goes blank it's important to keep holding down the buttons.…Only when you see the Apple logo reappear, do you know the device has successfully rebooted and then you can release the buttons.…You can also try this fix if your iPod or iPod touch is currently off and won't turn back on.…
Of course first make sure it's plugged into a charger to make sure the battery isn't just depleted.…But once you're plugged in,…hold down the sleep/wake and the home button together to see if your device will reboot.…
