    Ok so I got the iRecovery tool for Windows. And did all the steps like cd into the iRecovery_SVN location and stuff. But when i try to change the background color of the iPod Touch it says "Wrong number of Args". So i would like to know what I'm doing wrong.

    Thanks,

    I typed "bgcolor <red>" in the cmd and it said that. Sorry I'm noobish to this Ipod Touch hacking and stuff.

    follow this step to change the color in irecovery,

    Communication with DFU

    Put the device in DFU mode.
    Upload the iBSS found in the firmware ipsw to DFU.
    Unplug the device from the USB cable, wait a little bit, and the screen should turn white. At this point, plug it back in.
    Spawn a shell with it, to clarify, you can use anything that can talk to 0x1281 (Recovery Mode 2.0), as DFU mode itself can only let you upload files to it and does not allow commands to be sent to it.
    Do a test command to make sure everything is properly working. For example, type 'bgcolor 255 0 0' without the 's and the screen of the device should turn from white to red
    If the screen color changes, congrats, you can now communicate with the iPod Touch 2G at DFU level

    If you've gotten an error, you're able to communicate with your iPod already.
    bgcolor requires three arguments; RGB values (0-255) for your red, green, and blue channels.
