    Hi, I'm new, so wassup.

    Anyways, so I've been sitting here for 3 hours trying to get blackra1n to jailbreak my 16 gig ipod touch 2g 3.1.2. I've seen videos on youtube and stuff saying you should see the guys face come up when its being jailbroken but it never does for me. I just downloaded blackra1n today so i dont know if its a bad download or whatever, but i cannot get the guys face to pop up. Its not just that though. Whenever it runs through without his face popping up, it take about 20-30 minutes for it to restart.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    did you jailbreak 2.2.1 or anything before 3.1.2 and if you did, did install any helper programs like lib something?

    First you got to restore your Ipod, Install the latest 3.1.2 update and it should restore to that version, Then you can jailbreak your Ipod. Remember Itunes has to be open before you do so.
