    Well I've been attempting to jailbreak my buddy's iPod Touch 3g, and it hasn't been going well.

    When I run blackra1n, the picture of geohot pops up, and then I get the spinning wheel thing, after that goes away the iPod turns off and will not turn back on, unless I restore, and of course there is no jailbreak.

    HALP?

    When the iPod turns off like you say, disconnect it from the computer. Reconnect it and then close itunes, press cancel if it wants a restore. Then simply run Blackra1n again, and it will bootup fine.
    That's a tethered Jailbreak. you must re run the jailbreak each time you power off.

    What type of iPod are you using? If it is a 3g 8gb MC model you need the RC2 blackra1n tool and not the other ones.
