    Alright don't tell me nothin' about timing cuz I just timed it correctly on an iPhone but it just won't work with my iPod Touch. I even followed along exactly with the youtube videos and everything, so don't tell me that. But anyhow, at the point of which it should say "iTunes has detected a blah blah recovery mode" It gives me the "USB Device not recognized" message. Any suggestions? And the moment I turn the iTouch on it goes straight to recovery mode, so that's another thing. And no I can't use that because it's not being recognized. And no matter what it's not being recognized. I'm thinking it's a hardware issue, but I swear to god all these topics are saying "time it right, use DFU mode!" and I know how to use DFU Mode

    You MIGHT not be doing DFU mode right.
    I've gone into DFU tons of times, but I still mess up sometimes...

    Eh, that's not mean at all.
    And yeah, I hate not finding anything too, but I'm not sure.

    Just try and make sure you're counting to 10, then holding down the home button for at least 10-20 seconds.

    If it's still not recognized i iTunes, wait until somebody who knows what they're talking about helps you.

    I'm using the little clock at the bottom right side of the screen, exactly 10 seconds. And I know I'm doing everything right. I just hope one of these pros actually read my thread and try to help me soon. if at all >_<

    are you on mac 10.5.6 because there is a bug with the DFU mode. I couldn't downgrade my iphone from 3.0 beta because of that and I had to switch to a windows PC. or if you are a developer you can download from apple developer webite the library for USB 10.5.5.
