    I keep seeing topics about how someone's Ipod isn't recognized, and how they cant put it in DFU mode. So here is how to do it, and it will ALWAYS work if done right.

    Use the windows clock to get exact times.

    1) Open itunes, and plug in the ipod.
    2) Hold home and power for 10 seconds, then release power but keep holding home
    3) Keep holding home for about 8 seconds.
    4) Ipod will appear in itunes

    Note: This is just to hopefully end some of the topics saying they bricked their ipod.

    You understand how big of a jackass you are, right? Look at how many topics their are complaining, and then look at how many pinned topics there are about DFU mode.

    New people dont understand timing needs to be close to exact.

    Don't be bothered by jpga. He just sits on the forum all day refreshing his browser checking for new threads just to be sure he can make the first sarcastic post, it's the only thing that gives his life any meaning at all. I'm not even kidding either look at other posts he makes, he's always the first to respond and he's always being an asshole.
