    Hi,
    I tried to jailbreak the IPod of my nephew. its a 32Gig ipod third generation. the OS version of the ipod was 3.1.3
    i found the blackrain for 3.1.2 and tried that one. after I double clicked on the blackrain it didnt show me anything, other than "entering recovery mode". it stayed there and that was it.
    after that I tried everyway to turn it on.
    I tried manytimes to put it in dfu mode but after trying it so manytimes still the itunes wont recognize it.

    Do I have to throw it out? Please help I am getting frustrated
    any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    3.1.3 on a new ipod is not jailbreakable. Do not try, you won't get anywhere hopeful. Just wait for a few months for a jailbreak to be available.

    On another note, hold done both the power and menu button for 10 seconds, and continue holding them down until you see a apple. At this point stop holding them down and it should boot normally.

    I cant get it to dfu. i tried holding down the power and home button for 10 seconds and releasing the power while holding the home for another 10 seconds. no response whatsoever.
    i read forums and did some other combinations of these but the device is no responsive. is there any other way? are there any shops out there that would be able to repair it?

    Try holding the power and home button while connecting it to your computer at the same time..

    If the DFU-restore doesn't work, try bringing it to a distributor near you and getting their (ever so professional) opinion.
