    Hi,

    A lot of people have this problem, so i create this thread. If your ipod is stuck at the step "Downloading Jailbreak Data" and then is turning off you must install official 3.0 official firmware before with Itunes 8.2.

    So this is my advice :
    - restore your ipod with a previous firmware (jailbroken or not)
    - install itunes 8.2
    - upgrade to 3.0 official
    - use redsnOw

    I hope it will be useful !

    (Sorry for my english)

    Do you mean when you have to leave your iPod to finish jailbreaking itself? I did this the first time, took 10 minutes so i reset early, jailbroken but no cydia. Restored, and left it alone. It did it all by itself.

    This thread is really just telling people how to restore their iPods...

    Sometimes you can wait hours (like I did) with the message "Downloading Jailbreak Data", it's a problem when your firmware is not 3.0. A lot of people try to jailbreak a 2.2.1 jailbroken ipod and it's a mistake ! This is why I created this thread

    Just thought I'd say, your english is almost perfect.

    I haven't had this problem, but thanks for your help anyway.
