    I followed this guide http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137843 and was fine until step 10.
    Whenever I do the button combo to put it into DFU, A lil pop up box tells me "USB Device Not Recognized" and the screen stays black
    Then I'm supposed to unplug the ipod and plug it back in
    Then it's supposed to turn white
    Well it's just staying black
    I can't get anything to show up on the screen
    Is it Bricked?
    I'm on xp 32bit

    I think it's going into DFU mode
    It's the white screen part that I don't thinks working

    if iTunes says it's in recovery mode then it's in DFU so check that

    okay in boothelper after the first step that tells you to put it into DFU mode I get
    Code:
    Press any key to continue...
    "Uploading iBBS"
    iRecovery - Recpvery Utility
    by wEsTbAeR-- and Tom3q
    
    Got USB
    Got USB
    No iPhone/iPod found.
    "Replug your ipd and press enter when it turns white..."
    Press any key to continue...
    So, it's not finding my iPod?

    If it's not in iTunes then it's not in DFU so just try to get your timings right

    If you've completed step 10 I think you've jailbroke it but just need to boot withthis
