    Hello.

    I am new at Jailbreaking iPods/iPhones.

    Today, my friend gave me his iPod Touch 2nd gen to Jailbreak (my first time (and i told him this))

    Well, i updated it to v.3.0 and used redsn0w to jailbreak. Everything worked just like the video i watched on youtube showed me, however. After about 5-10 minutes my parents got home and i decided to go show them. As i reached the bottom of the stairs to show my mother, the screen on the iPod Touch went black. I cannot turn it back on or pressing the home key does not work. I cannot hear any noise when i try to lock or unlock the iPod Touch and when i opened iTunes to try and restore it, iTunes cant find the device. It doesnt think i have one plugged in. I am running on windows XP and the newest version of iTunes if that helps.

    This is my very first time so please help me as best as possible.

    Thank you~

    try DFU + Restore. Are you sure thebattery didn't die? Leave it plugged in for a bit. sometimes ( in my experience) when the battery dies iTunes doesn't respond right away until the device gets a little charge.

    No problem. If you are plagued by this problem in the future, DFU mode is usually something to think about.
