Alright, I went through all the steps and it all worked fine. I used the redsnow 1.0 thing. All steps worked fine with no problems. Now im kind of stuck in the end. Ipod screen is black and windows is giving me an error message saying "One of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message." I tried the holding power and home buttom like 50 times now and nothing happens, the message keeps re-appearing, no sounds. Itunes says that my ipod is in recovery mode. What should I do? should i restore it back and do it again. DId i make a mistake in the middles? Thanks.
