    Ok, installed redsn0w ok, no probs was using cydia fine, as if i were using my bros ipod touch 1g jb, however i decided to install sbsettings and it was fine until at one point when restarting springboard the ipod froze, so I had to force reboot and lost use of my ipod for the day

    got home, decided to re jailbreak, did fine, got to itunes (apple boot logo stage) and it hung with the springboard reboot icon (when shutting off ipod the swirling lines) which overlayed the apple logo, when connecting the ipod the sound that is made (ding noise) was played every 10-15 odd seconds and it got no further than thats, in my itunes a "ipod" and "curt guvens ipod" was shown in devices, i ejected ipod and tried to restore the other 1 (shift restore 2 2.2.1 (official)) however i got a 1602 error :O

    decided to remove jb as its causing me hassle and i cba ill wait, so i try and enter dfu mode (at this point ipod has been forced off and the screen is blank) and it just wont go, ive tried so many times and it just wont, as soon as im in dfu im good so help is 100% appriciated!!!

    plug it into the pc, start itunes

    press and hold both buttons till it dings, then let go of power (keep home pressed) till it dings again. itunes will tell you there is an error. click ok.

    you are now in DFU

    Ok, double click your click on you PC screen. Somewhere on whatever comes up it should show the second passing. Hold down home and power on your ipod touch for exactly 10 seconds by the PC clock's time, then once the the 10th second has passed release the power button but keep holding the home button for 8 more seconds then release the home button. Wait, then iTunes should pop up saying it's in recovery mode. If you do it exactly like this, it WILL work. Mine didn't pop up with a sound either.

    Edit: Nevermind. But now you can go from the step where it tells you to get a white screen on it.

    What is it you did: "device manager magic"?
    Cuz someday I wanted to reboot my jailbroken iPod (32gb 3rd gen) and I got the restore screen for 10 seconds, then it got black and it didn't respond to anything and I tried DFU mode 15-20 times !!
