    So this is whats happened.
    im at step two and I selected the IPSW and went to the brick that downloaded in Desktop (which took 30mins to download so that might be it). So I go to Make IPSW and the black screen just pops up for a second but i can't see whats written on it.. it says in the youtube video that it should take a few minutes so i know somethings up and i can't continue to step 3 ..

    Do you have Admin Permissions? Maybe the cmd.exe (black screen) is failing.

    I had that happen at work when i had to reboot mine. The only way i could run cmd was on the U: drive...permissions prevented me from running on C:

    try run > Cmd.exe

    what happens?

    It sounds like you're on a pc...I used the mac tutorial, but this is a link to the windows redsn0w tutorial on ipodtouchfans forum

    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137796

    The mac version worked flawlessly...I am assuming that the windoze version is equally as radically awesome

    ahh i fixed it.
    for anyone else who's having this problem then extract the contents of the unzipped folder onto your desktop and that makes it work
