    hey guys

    i have had a problem with my friends ipod touch(16gb,if that matters) for a couple days now and I'm running out of ideas to fix it.. So here's the deal

    he upgraded to version 2.0 with itunes 7.7, and he gave it to me to jailbreak.
    i attempted to jailbreak his ipod with my itunes 7.5 and with Ziphone.. i didn't realize the comments that said 16 gb wont work for this one..... so as soon as i read that, i unplugged it like an idiot..... It has been stuck on the recovery mode screen for a while, and itunes wont recognize it. The thing is, the recovery screen looks different than all the other ones i see. it has a different looking usb cable and it says itunes under the itunes symbol. i Have tried almost everything on the internet, but can't seem to get it to work.

    so if anyone knows the solution to this, ill give an epic e-highfive

    Place the iPod touch into DFU Mode, following one of the 3 steps below:

    1. Hold down Sleep/Wake button and Home button together, until the iPod touch powers off. Once the iPod touch turns on again, let go of the Sleep/Wake button about 1 or 2 seconds later, still holding the Home button. Once plugged in, iTunes will recognize the device is in Recovery Mode. You can now restore normally through iTunes.

    2. Your iPod touch needs to be plugged in to your computer. Open up iLiberty+ and other the Other Tools tab select Enter DFU Mode. iTunes will now recognize the device is in Recovery Mode. You can now restore normally through iTunes.

    3. Your iPod touch needs to be plugged into your computer. Open up ZiPhone and select Prepare for Upgrade. iTunes will now recognize the device is in Recovery Mode. You can now restore normally through iTunes.

    A quick way I learned to have the right timing to get on DFU mode is to count 1 to 8 holding both the sleep and home button as in

    1 Mississippi 2 Mississippi 3 Mississippi etc etc after 8 let go of the sleep button and keep holding the Home button until iTunes recognizes it
