    Hi folks,

    I'm trying to Jailbreak my iPod Touch (16GB) to 2.0.1.

    Everything went OK until where I've got to put my iPod in DFU Mode.
    I always got restore mode instead of DFU, so I've noticed I was in the wrong mode after searching the net to jailbreak my iPod.

    But now i'm stuck at Restore mode, so if I turn on my iPod, it boots and asks to connect to iTunes, which ask me to restore it back.

    I don't want to let it restore it first (which takes a lot time, imo), but is there a possibity to get into the DFU mode without getting to the Springboard first?

    I hope someon can help me

    hold the power and home button for ten seconds, then let go of home and continue holding the home button until the little ding noise is made indicating that your computer recognizes it

    Ok follow these exact steps:

    1) NEXT TIME USE THE SEARCH BUTTON ABOVE

    2) HOLD the alt button then press the restore button on itunes and it will open up and ask you to select a CUSTOM firmware.

    3) Then select the custom one that was created in your desktop and open that up

    4) Wait for the restore to finish and DONE

    I've already searched it
    But they say to release the power button after 10 seconds...
    So I really have to count?
    So if the Apple Logo comes up, is it too late than?

    no, you want ten seconds. after about 8 seconds your ipod would turn off, then at ten you let go of the sleep button

    So first I need to turn it on normally
    In my situation, my screen will be the "Connect to iTunes"-screen
    So now I have to turn it off, at 10 second I have to release the power button but keep holding the Home button

    It doesn't give any reaction.
    I've tried the method when I start my iPod
    A bit later, my screen went blank and then white for a second
    and it goes back to "connect to iTunes"-screen

    The problem is, I can't go back to the sprinboard or boot my iPod normally
