    I have a 16GB Itouch and have successfully jailbroke it once but for some reason I had to restore it, i think it was because all I could see was the apple logo.

    So today I have decided to rejailbreak it and it works perfect until it gets to the stage where it says uploading ramdisk, it gets to 3 bars on it then crashes. Windows gives me the option to close the program or search the internet for a solution and close the program.

    I am using redsn0w 0.7.2 and windows vista, I have tried running as administrator and also windows xp sp3 compatible mode and ends up crashing at the same point.

    Any ideas?

    I am a total n00b to all this and the instructions here worked for me the 1st time: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=203303

    What do you see when your iPod is in DFU Mode?
    A white screen? Or a black screen?

    Also, close redsn0w and open iTunes and see if it detects your iPod.
    If it does, just exit out and try to rerun redsn0w again.

    If it doesnt, try DFU Mode again, and make sure you see your device in Device Manager.
    You can get to it by going to Start > Run > devmgmt.msc

    It will be listed under Universal Serial Bus in one of the ports.

    Make sure there are no yellow triangles beside anything related to your device.

    -------------

    If it keeps failing, try again with 0.7.1 or 0.8

    -------------

    For a last resort, get to XP SP2 or Mac OS X
    Make sure iTunes is installed on the computer, it needs to be for DFU drivers. o_o

    When its in DFU mode nothing is shown...I followed the steps given on redsn0w.

    I tried version .8 and it did it successfully so maybe 0.7.2 is broke for me somehow?
