    Put it in DFU mode, restore, then try Redsn0w again.

    2G iPod touch
    Unable to rejailbreak

    This is what happens in my case:
    I just restored firmware 2.1.1 because my iPod touch 2G was performing bad...
    Before that I successfully jailboroke it using Quickfreedom.
    So I tried many times to rejailbreak it using Redsn0w 0.7.2 and 0.8.0 and FW iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw.
    The process goes very smooth till the end, then Redsnow doesn't wait for iPod to reboot and says that the process is already finisher, on the contrary the iPot has the wheel running as for a reboot but it never completes!!!
    At this point none of the iPod buttons work except holding power and home together, this brings the iPod back to the restore screen (USB connector waiting for you to connect to iTunes.
    This happens exactly the same all the times I tried.
    Performing the restore with iTunes and FW 2.2.1 works...

    What can I do?

    I am having the same problem with redsn0w 0.7.2 and 0.8
    I am sure I can get into DFU mode and I ran redsn0w as Admin already
    instead of showing "Downloading Jailbreak Data"
    ipod touch only shows a black screen and redsn0w says it's done
    I have tried many times with/without restore, still get the black screen

    I think the point is people who successfully jailbroke their ipod touch are using the same firmware
