    Hello
    new user here

    and i recently got the 8gb 3G ipod touch
    and when i connect it to the computer i used blackra1n
    when it goes to entering recovery mode
    it just displays the screen saying you have to plug it into iTunes
    and then it stays like that and so does blackra1n

    any solutions??

    OK, FIRST OF ALL, there is NOT a 3G or 3rd generation 8gb iPod Touch. The so-called "3G ipod touch" is technically a 2nd generation. Only the 32GB and 64GB models are part of the 3rd generation family.

    SECOND: Once blackra1n has done its job, it shouldn't do anything. just close it once you're sure it's done.

    THIRD: If something went wrong, you can always try making it ra1n again. If worst comes to worst, you can restore your iPod back to factory settings through iTunes.

    but i left it and it said jailbreak complete

    and THEN
    i went to the springboard seeing no blackra1n?

    i think you're suppose to reboot the ipod for it to show. I haven't used blackra1n since the day it came out, so I don't remember the process exactly. You could try finding a guide on YouTube on how to use blackra1n. This is by far the easiest jailbreak in history, so I think that something wrong happened on the user end.

    Press "make it ra1n" when you see connect to itunes screem on your iPod.It'll boot it up. Did you turn it off?

    and ive already jailbroken a bunch of ipods using the same blackra1n
    could it be because my ipod is 3g? and NOT 2g?

    3rd Gen iPod touches are all tethered.
