    Hey guys,

    there is a post from the user wh!te, but i think my crash is something different.
    I have my ipod 2g 8gb jailbroken in the tethered mode for ages now. yesterday i was sitting in my car and watching a movie with my ipod when it suddenly turned off, black screen.
    i thought to myself "uggghhh, now i have to do the real jailbreak with redsn0w".
    but the problem is.. it stays in that black screen mode and doesnt let me put it into dfu mode. windows xp is telling me that it couldnt detect the usb device.
    the ipod wont show me a USB logo or an itunes logo. its everytime just showing the black screen.

    am i screwed?

    Not to be rude- Just looking out for you
    Are you sure you did DFU right?
    Power + Home 10 sec, release Power?

    yeah, i did it right.
    but when i hold the power button.. shouldnt the ipod show a usb logo or something?
    i hold both buttons 10 seconds und then release the upper button, windows says USB device not detected, after 8 more seconds i release the home button. but the ipod did not show something the whole time.
    so i guess it is not in DFU mode.

    When you do DFU right nothing should show up on your screen.

    try putting it into dfu and then manually restore the firmware (shift & click on restore in itunes)

    edit: just keep tryin', it took me a couple hours to get it info dfu - idk why..
