Hey guys, This is my first thread so excuse any newbiness. Well I've been trying to put my ipod touch 2g into DFU mode and it's like it just won't happen. I've tried all the different amounts of time to hold the buttons that people have said. I've even used the standalone DFU helper. So when I do the process of getting it into DFU mode, I'm not sure if its even in DFU mode. If its in DFU mode is it supposed to be able to go back to normal boot in any manual way? I'm asking this because when I hold home and power for 10 seconds after it has an unresponsive black screen, it reboots normally. I thought you can't get out of DFU without using some programs or restoring it or something. Another thing is, when I keep itunes open and I do the key combinations, no matter how long I hold home, the ipod won't reappear in itunes unless I exit and run itunes again. Even then, when I do the restore, it gives me 1606. I get the black screen and I've been trying to restore to a posted firmware for the 2g jailbreak. I always get the 1606 error (cannot restore). I'm using the firmware given from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YGZpRNf4WE If my questions seem unanswerable, then can someone at least tell me how I can be sure that my ipod is in DFU mode? Maybe it is in DFU but that firmware is just screwed up? If thats the case then can someone link a firmware for the semi-tethered jailbreak that actually works. And in case your wondering, I'm not stupid or anything...I'm sure I'm doing the keys right. I was just surprised that it could reboot normally after I held home and power for 10 secs and let go.
