    Hi all, i seem to be having a different problem then most on here. i get past all of the first steps with quickpwn, i get to the last part where it tells me to wait while the ipod is being prepared for the jailbreak, ive left it sitting there for long periods of time (a half hour or more) and the ipod never reboots or anything. its like quickpwn just stops working.... Ive redownloaded quickpwn lots of times and tried different versions... official and morphys they all do the same thing... any advice? i really wanna jailbreak my ipod!

    Do you have 2.1 firmware on your device and on your desktop?

    That doesn't mean anything other than you know which device you have. Now is your ipod updated to 2.1 firmware? Do you have a copy of the 2.1 firmware on your desktop?

    Yes, your iPod is supposed to be on which ever firmware version you're trying to jailbreak. You also need to have that version firmware download somewhere on your computer. You can either download it off apple's site or use google, or you would have to find it on your computer. I forgot where it was located though. I'm sure there's a topic around here that would explain all of this.

    Ok now i got that worked out, but this time it wont get past the waiting for recovery mode part like everyone else gets.... and whats worse my ipod began starting up ONLY in recovery mode and i had to restore it... So im kind of afraid to try this again... any more advice? also i was using morphys version of quickpwn if that matters
