    My iPod isn't showing up in iTunes. I just jailbroke my iPod on 2.1 following the directions perfectly. I rebooted when it told me, and replaced a certain file with patched file as instructed to get backups working. Now, iTunes will not recognize my iPod. I have it plugged in and everything. I might try rebooting my computer if I must.

    I rebooted my computer and my iPod was spazing out with the USB connector, but eventually iTunes crashed and I unplugged my iPod. I plugged it back in and it finally stayed, and reloaded iTunes and got a message saying, "The iPod couldn't be recognized because Apple Mobile Device service isn't started up"

    Used to have same problem

    i used to have the same problem so i just restored and then jb again. Sometimes u got to go from standby mode to recognize the iPod. Keep ur iPod connected. go to standby mode on ur computer( i use PC). Then start ur computer again while keeping ur iPod plugged in.
