    despite everyone's advice on here, which ends up being everyone saying "dude, just DFU mode it and you'll be fine" ... despite all this, the ipod will - not - boot or go into DFU MODE.

    i honestly think that this jailbreak process is corrupting these 2nd generation ipod touch's... and i say this from seeing countless non-bootable ipod jailbreak issues on this forum site in just the last week...

    people get into a certain understanding about the 1g jailbreak because, since it was untethered, a "brick" possibility .. was way out of the question... NOW there is LOTS of new factors involved with this jailbreak and i think it is ultimately killing these ipods

    If you are thinking about jailbreaking.. don't.. wait for a non-beta UNTETHERED jailbreak.. who gives a sh*t how long it takes.. those who were too anxious to wait for a more secure jailbreak are at a loss in my opinion.. i think these ipod's are unstable in a tethered jailbreak...

    my advice to users with jailbroken 2g? restore to apples 2.1.1 and just relax because my case isn't the only one and i think that the new processors that are in the 2g ipod are different (better) than 1g but they seem to not handle constant DFU mode or handling the tethered jailbreak



    this is my experience and my opinion, i know i'm not the only one on this site who feels this way but take my 2 cents as you please

    that isn't true, that is a biased opinion

    like you know? your ipod works fine.. you don't have any troubleshooting problems.. who are you to say there aren't special cases? i could send YOU the stupid ipod and YOU couldn't even boot it

    Working fine here. I don't know what you did to it.
    And yes, we know. I have jailbroken many iPods and tested many programs on my iPod, still works fine.

    I'm sorry, but I think the problem is with the user.
    As the hardware is the same in all iPod Touch 2G's, and it's working on a few, then I can't see how the JB is the problem. The JB doesn't say "Midnight0045, I don't like you" and then corrupts your ipod for fun.
    It either works for everyone, or it works for nobody (since it's the same hardware). And, given i've got a working JB'ed 2nd Gen iPod Touch sitting right here in my hand, i'm inclined to see it as a fault with the user.
    I'd be willing to bet all the problems are the fault of users who just don't follow instructions or skip steps (e.g. not installing LIBUSB), or those who don't know how to use DFU mode etc.

    It either works for everyone, or it works for nobody, and my iPod has been jailbroken and working perfectly from 30/01 (about 3 weeks).
    So, try again and stick closer to instructions.

    If you really can't get it working, then I can help you do it over remote assistance over MSN. (Sorry if I come across as a bit harsh)

    Definitly sounds like a PICNIC problem....well in this case a PICNIIT problem. Meaning "Problem In Chair Not In Ipod Touch" originally "Problem In Chair Not In Computer"

    i have already done everything.. really it hasn't worked for a week


    1. plug in the ipod touch

    2. vista pops up a window, "unrecognized USB Device"

    3. DFU Mode process, timed perfectly with the power button release at 10 seconds and holding home button for 30-45 seconds after power button release

    8 seconds into the DFU process, windows beeps telling me there has been a disconnection of the unknown usb device

    5. 2 seconds later i release the power and continue holding the home button for 30 seconds

    There is NO NEW BEEP after this step .. there is no new window from vista recognizing the ipod touch, itunes does not open prompting a restore..

    i can't use ANY one click booters because the ipod wont fully go into DFU mode

    my timing is perfect, i have used all usb ports, i have restarted, uninstalled and reinstalled libwin/itunes/mobiledevice support

    i would take that bet. heck i'd give it a shot. my ipod is fine, and i'm not saying that there aren't special cases, but if everything was done properly, u should be fine.
