    try putting it in restore mode through the Actual iTouch by holding the sleep button on the top left and the homescreen button below the screen. Keep holding this down until you get the screen to show the USB cable and the iTunes logo. It takes a bit... so keep holding it down wen the screen cuts off and during the time where the apple logo shows up. then restore it so it has 1.1.4 firmware

    afterwards, if he has an 8GB iTouch you can use Ziphone to jailbreak (look up on youtube) or if he doesnt he can use this way: http://ipodtouchmaster.com/1.1.4_flash.html
    This also works for an 8GB, I have an 8GB but ziphone didnt work so i did it this way.

    Now if he doesnt want to go on 1.1.4 jailbreak, message me and I can hook you up.

    helpful? questions? message me

    This method here should allow you to avoid a restore.

    If it does not work for you then, do the obvious, restore although it should. If you do not know how look at this vid (recovery mode)
    Another method is DFU mode, but the above usually work out if not then search the forums where you should find a tutorial

    umm,

    did you hold it down long enough?

    keep holding the 2 buttons down until the iTunes logo and USB connector come up

    alright is iTunes recognizing it?

    Yes id did I have done it several times
    Then it reads
    BSD Root: mn0, major 2, minor 0
    BSD Root: mn0, major 2, minor 0
    BSD Root: mn0, major 2, minor 0
    BSD Root: mn0, major 2, minor 0
    and it keeps going.
    I can not load up jail beak again to restore it due tou it not seeing the ipod
