    I have finally figured out how to make custom logos on the ipod touch 2g with 3.0 jailbroken. Now, I know that iTouchGuru had something similar about this, but this uses only redsn0w and 3.0 nor files. Simple version: less likely to screw up your ipod. Also, this is based of Retro349's verbose boot tutorial.

    How to do this:

    1. insert your custom logo into the applelogo img3 file. Use imagetool for this. There are tutorials on how to do this. Search and you shall find. You will need the Key/IV pair, which is at the end of this post.

    2. unzip the 3.0 unmodified ipsw into a directory, MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT GET DELETED.

    3. slip the img3 file into the Firmware->all_flash->all_flash.n72ap.production folder. Make sure it is named applelogo.s5l8720x.img3. It will crash if it is not named right

    4. zip it all up with this command: cd /path/to/unzipped/ipsw/dir/ ; zip -r ../iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore1.ipsw ./

    5. make sure the original unmodified ipsw and the modded one are in the same directory, and the unmodified one has the name iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw.

    6. open redsn0w, point it to the original, unmodified ipsw, do not hit next.

    7. rename the original ipsw iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore2.ipsw

    8. rename the modded one iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw.

    9. use redsn0w like you would normally, if you are already jailbroken, uncheck install cydia.

    There you go, custom logos on the ipod touch 2g 3.0.

    The key/IV pair (Mods, if posting a key/IV pair is against the rules, feel free to remove it)

    IV: 1237fe42ccb2cc144cf680d112409413
    Key: 4f597271cb2a131f5b9ffb1832f8f07a

    Edit: Here is the recovery logo Key/IV

    make sure it is named applelogo.s5l8720x.img3, and not applelogo.s5l8720.img3 (notice the missing x from s5l8720x). This caused redsn0w to crash for me on "Downloading DFU Loader 32%", this could be the same issue.

    i checked and the files are still named right, but it still crashes

    Edit: right before it crashes, it says "Downloading applelogo.s5l8720x.img3

    Edit: when i make the new img3 file, its 603.kb is that too big or something?

    603 kb is way too big, retry imagetool again. I got 600 kb when i first injected my apple logo, another try fixed it.
