    Hey guys I have been trying for the past 4 days now. I can't seem to get my damn friends 1G to jailbreak. It gets stuck on waiting for reboot with redsn0w 7.1 and 8.0. I have the correct firmware and everything.

    Ofcourse before I posted I google'd and tried everything, also posted on another forum on this site and well I didn't notice the jailbreak section so I thought I would post here.

    Anyways here are the so called fixes that I have tried.

    Removed the USB cable and put it back in, still no luck

    Did a full restore and tried again, still no luck

    Tried 3 different USB ports, still no luck

    I tried it once with LIB USB, then removed it and tried it, still no luck

    Ran it in Admin mode, still no luck, completley removed vista's security thing so admin mode does not matter anymore, still no luck

    Finally tried to run in XP compatability mode, still no luck.

    Whats weird though is I have succefully jailbroken my iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 2G so I know its not my computer, what is there left to do?

    Yeah it is. Ah well, must be something to do with LibUSB since I had that installed on my comp, then I uninstalled it, but I guess it leaves some things on your computer that sorta messes things up.

    I had the same problem the first time. I followed the guide here and it says to put it in recovery mode before you start the program. I decided to put it in recovery mode wen redsnow says i needed to and it worked like a charm.

    I'm sorry but you have to use redn0w to jb 3.0. Quickpwn is for 2.x.

    3 things,

    1) when it says waiting for reboot, are you still holding the home button? you should hold the home button all the way until you get the picture appears on your ipod,

    2) if it crashes on waiting for reboot, restart redsn0w and it will automaticly go back to what ever stage it crashed on once its checked the fw.

    3) if possible use a different computer.


    Good Luck =)
