    Before we begin, can you check your Settings for Notifications and make sure it's all set to ON? If that doesn't solve your problem, keep reading. Also check the setting in your app for notifications to ON too, if your app has a setting for that. I recommend AIM (free) to test push before restoring.

    Guide #1 (try this before Guide #2)

    1. Go to your routers config page. The default should be this URL, if it isn't, look for it by pressing START + R at the same time, and typing in "cmd" then hitting OK. Now type "/ipconfig" and look for "Default Gateway". Type that address in your browser.
    Code:
    http://192.168.1.1
    Login with your routers default username and password, it's usually this:
    Code:
    Username: admin
    Password: *leave blank*
    If that doesn't work, do a Google search of " *routers model* default login " and login with that.

    2. Find your DNS settings on your routers homepage and use this DNS Server:
    Code:
    194.150.168.168
    3. On your iPod go to Settings then WiFi.

    4. Click the little blue arrow next to your WiFi connection and look for DNS.

    5. Enter this for DNS:
    Code:
    194.150.168.168
    6. Should work now, test it with AIM (free)

    Guide #2

    1. Restore.

    2. On your iPod, download the free AIM app from AppStore and run it.

    3. Open AIM and IM someone (maybe yourself on another account from your PC).

    4. Close AIM and wait for your friend (or you) to IM you back, does push work?

    If it doesn't, open AIM back up, plug your iPod into your computer and open iTunes. Close AIM and open it again, test push again.

    Still doesn't work? Reboot your iPod. Should work fine now, test it and then unplug your iPod, and test it again.


    4. This is where you may jailbreak your iPod again.



    What went wrong? You have to at least use push notifications before jailbreaking, it seems this is the equivalent for the activation fix on an iPhone.



    Worked for me, let me know if it works for you.

    Thanks to Lambo100 for instructions to Guide #1

    Yeah, works for some people after jailbreak, majority doesn't though.

    Did you upgrade from 2.2.1 to 3.0, then jailbreak? If so, that's prob why it still works.

    DFU restore.
    Maybe it's AIM or something.

    You can use any other program from the App Store to test pushing, AIM was just the most convenient to mention.

    I'm about to try this but can anyone else confirm that this works before I go through the process of restoring, jailbreaking, and then syncing all my songs again?

    Don't sync your songs, do the steps first and verify that they work. Then, if it does, sync your songs.

    ok and just to confirm should I do a DFU mode restore to 3.0?

    Edit: Aim I know for sure is not working as the reviews of it are full of complaints about no push notification, then again they could be jailbroken users, Swift, are you using aim or some other push notification app?

    Updated didn't come out until after we jailbroke 3.0.

    Yes, DFU restore.
