    I'm trying to use RedSn0w to put my device into DFU mode, and no matter how many times I try their instructions, my device never gets set into DFU mode.

    How do you guys do it?

    Try this.

    Unplug your iPod, then press and hold the home button as plugging it back in and try redsn0w and tell me how it works.

    Are you sure you are timing it correctly? If you are off by a second, it won't work.

    I'm trying all sorts of timing methods. They still don't work.

    That's weird because my iPod kept freezing at the boot logo (the spinning wheel/ star jailbreak) and so I put it into DFU mode first try.

    Press and hold the power and home button until the iPod turns off, then instantly release the power button for about a minute until the computer recognizes it.

    You can try this, but this is recovery mode which is not the same thing as DFU mode. For DFU, try holding the home and power for 10 seconds and then release the power, holding the home button for another ~15 seconds.

    Redsn0w uses DFU mode.
