    My iPod's seen alot recently... I've been from tethered, to semi, back to tethered, to run rs, to NitroKey's 'run rs' solution, but now I'm having problems re-jailbreaking to 'run rs' (well, NitroKey's didn't work well as well)...

    Is there anyway to completely wipe out the touch? I mean clear the NOR (well, clear the rs patch from the nor

    Ah, no shift-click? Even if I selected a firmware I downloaded directly from apple?

    I've restored it a few times to a normal firmware and get "iTunes received an invalid response" from the device afterwards (it does work after the connect to itunes goes away)...

    I guess I'll try without shift-click?

    Restore back to clean unmodifyed firmware. And dont do a back up sync. Then reapply the jailbreak.

    To clear your environmental variables (which should survive a restore), open a shell using a program capable of communicating with iBoot, then send "clearenv" and "setenv auto-boot true", and "saveenv".
