    Go to www.redsn0w.com and get redsn0w 0.3 and then double click and it will do the rest

    I'm running it as administrador and I already downloaded redsnow the thing is that it just closed after the 30 seconds passed( it tell me to realease the hold button and keep holding the home button for 30 seconds and in the screen their is the countdown but when it gets to 1 it just closed)

    What can I do??

    on xp, 10+30 sec. for dfu is overkill... 10+7-8 was the magic number for me.

    But after that is it supposed to close??
    Because as soon as the countdown got to 1 it just closed.
    Is it that that was only to put the itouch in Dfu mode and then I have to go and open redsnow again but this time without pressing enter at the beginning???

    Note: I'm saying without pressing enter at the beginning because my iPod wasn't in Dfu mode so I had to put it in Dfu mode first and at the beginning once u open redsnow it ask u if it is in Dfu mode already or if u need the guide to put it in Dfu mode and I selected the guide to put it in Dfu mode
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Also how do I know for sure that my iPod is in Dfu mode???
    Is something supposed to happens because redsnow said that my iPod was going to be flashing or something like that but in my iPod I didn't see anything like that. The only thing that appeared was the apple logo when I holded the Hold button for 3 seconds at the biginning but then it dissapeared after I start pressing both buttons at the same time.

    thanks guys. the problem i guess it was my laptop because when i tried it in my desktop it worked perfectly but thanks anyways.

    Note:Redsnow rocksssssss
  10. Yes QuickFreedom is good but redsn0w is better because:

    1. No restoring needed
    2. No LibUSB (which is a b*tch when on vista)
    3. You can use LogoMe

    So basically...hooray for redsn0w also it isn't hard to use either.
