    You probably didn't mean to start a new thread here, but this defenitely should have been on another thread. Anyway...

    Between steps 1 & 2 did you do a restore before you tried to JB using the OS 3.0 software, or were you still running a 2.x version.

    To do this, hold down shift and click restore in iTunes. It will ask you for a location of the ipsw you want to use. Once located a restore will occur wiping your iPod of all previous info.
    After this step you can continue with redsn0w.
    After jailbreak is completed is when you should then turn iTunes back on to backup all of your previous info.

    If you continue to have problems check out this tutorial:


    It is what I used to jailbreak my iPod and I found it very detailed and easy to follow.
