    Alright, here's the scenario.

    Last night, I attempted to jailbreak my iTouch several times but proceeded to fail each time.

    So today, after I got home from school, I downloaded the GUI version of redsn0w. Everything worked out until step five. It told me to put my iTouch into DFU mode. So I attempted to do so but nothing ever happened.

    I've tried to put it into DFU mode, tried to get the "connect to iTunes" screen, but nothing worked.

    Also, when I plug my iTouch into my computer I get this error:

    So now that you know what happened, could anyone help me? Anyone else have this problem while attempting to jailbreak their iTouch?


    P.S. I also can't get my iTouch to turn on, reset, or anything like that.

    Happened to me twice, just get into DFU mode, and proper timing is the key.

    That's the thing, I've tried maybe 15 times and can't get it into DFU mode. Before, I got it DFU mode every time I had to.

    Trust me, that happened to me, I didn't believe the timing stuff and then with patience, it worked.

    Hi, it's absolutly normal that you received the ''unrecognise USB Device'' you only have to plug your Itouch into the PC (you will hear the sound when a USB device is plug in) now press on both button until you heard the sounds of the closind USB device, now let go the power button and wait for the sound of the plug in device and let go the home button! congrats you're in DFU mode

    1. That error is normal in order for Itune to NOT recognize your Ipod Touch. But with Libusb installed. It should pick that up once you unplug and replug your touch back into your PC.

    2. Most ppl don't realize this but the USB detection setting timings can be off by a few seconds due to the way it was set up on your motherboard's BIOS setting. Therefore, it is important to follow other more experienced post about listening in with the sound turned up. 1st beep is to let go of the top/sleep button. 2nd beep is to let go of the bottom/HOME button. Then you should be in DFU mode.

    3. If you are experiencing a black screen and cannot turn on via the Power/sleep button or resetting it. Then it is actually safe to assume you have entered into DFU mode but you simply need to plug and unplug your usb CABLE. I have yet to see anyone, including the self-proclaimed pros ever bricking a 2G yet. Simply because you would need to intentionally delete some of its vital internal files within the 2G. And most 99.98% don't know how to even get into there.
