    I was in SBSettings, looking at the themes. And then my ipod freezes, flashes a white screen, and goes black! Pressing the power button won't do anything, home button won't do anything, and pressing them both won't do anything either. I connected it to my mac and nothing happens.

    What's wrong with it! Please help!

    Try putting it into dfu mode. I had a black screen after skipping a step and put it into dfu mode and I was good.

    Tried that. I was successful in jailbreaking. If I can get it into dfu I'll be fine. I'm hoping something will happen when the battery runs out. If there's anything else I can try though...

    redsn0w is what 2g ipod touch users use to jailbreak. redsn0w lite is the current version out from the iPhone dev team.

    Yes, I'm aware of that, I redsn0wed my device. It is a TETHERED jailbreak, meaning that every time you boot the device you will need to redo step 13 of the tutorial I posted in my previous post.

    Just hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds with it plugged into your computer. A "USB Device Not Recognized" error might pop up. From there try to boot into DFU mode.

    you plug it into itunes, hold down both buttons for 10 seconds, release power, hold another 15 or so, and ur in dfu regardless if it is "booted" or not.
