    I have an iPod Touch 2G that is frozen on Downloading Jailbreak data, and then reloading symbol is continuously spinning. Is this normal?

    It ended up rebooting, but then it wanted me to connect to iTunes. Upon doing so, it prompted me to restore the iPod. I'm confused?

    If it is in recovery mode that means the jailbreak did not go successfully. You can either restore or put it into DFU mode and try to run redsn0w again.

    Also, if you want to add something to your post next time, please just click 'Edit' and then add it instead of double-posting.

    Your iPod botted into Recovery Mode.

    Put it back into DFU Mode, and rerun redsn0w. (no need to restore, just DFU from the restore screen)

    Make sure your computer is fully connected to the internet.
    (try bypassing your router and connecting your modem directly to your computer)
    ... also disabling all your firewalls and/or virus protection software temporarily.

    OR go to a different computer and try it, some computers are... well.. reluctant.

    Maybe a Mac.

    Good Luck,

    thank you for the advice of going into DFU and running Redsnow again.

    Now its finished, but its still on the step of Downloading Jailbreak Data ...
