    Hey guys,

    I have a jailbroken ipt2g, tethered with redsn0w

    i had been using cyw00d to reboot if it ever died which wasnt a problem at all

    recently, it died on me and i didn't reb00t for a week, then i have been trying to reboot and it doesnt seem to want to respond to putting it into dfu mode

    when i plug it into my PC, the message "USB Device Not Recognized" pops up, and also pops up when i am in the process of trying to DFU

    about 8 seconds into the first step (power and home buttons) of the DFU process, the SAME USB message pops up

    not sure what to do with this one, any input would be awesome

    thanks in advance guys

    hey you know there is an untetherd jailbreak now, you should use it instead of the tethered hassle, search the site and you will find many tutorials.

    forget about the messages. put it into DFU mode and try the jailbreak (redsn0w 0.3) if it doesnt work then worry about the messages. but for know just download the redsn0w and it shows you how to put your device into DFU mode. try that and see if it rejailbreaks your ipod.

    You're most likely timing it wrong.
    Sometimes I can get it 10 times in a row 100% and other times it takes me 20 tries to get it.

    just tried like 30 more times guys

    the usb message pops up about 7 seconds in each time (during the power and home button hold)

    its getting kind of annoying

    does anyone have AIM that maybe can walk this thru for me?
