Ok, so here is my story. I was never able to get past the putty part of the jailbreak because of the "Connection refused" error and so I reset the iPod completely. Then it would not get past the patching flash image thing, so i reset it a few times, and finally decided to reset and not try the jailbreak. So i did this by goign through the settings on the iPod touch and going to erase all data and information and revert back to factory defaults. I did this and know all it shows is the usb connectin thing with an arrow pointing to itunes on the touch. it is the very first screen you see when turning on the touch for the first time ever. so i plugged it into the computer, and it is not recognized by itunes at all. so i reinstalled itunes, and still nothing. after about 10 minutes or so the touch just shuts off, and i reboot and the same thing happens. no recognition by the computer, and i cant do anything on the touch intself except turn it on and off. any suggestions or help advice?
