    So, here's the thing. I own a 32gb MC model, fw: 3.1.2 by stock. It arrived just today, i didn't waste time and jailbroke it as soon as i could with blackra1n. It was almost ok (coudnt install installd)...so i decided to restore to factory defaults (from ipod menu) and start again all the proccess.

    Thing is it never booted again...i'm stuck on recovery mode. I've already tried runnning blackra1n again, but it gets stuck on gehot's picture for like 15 min and then restarts.

    Tried also jailbreaking with redsnow 0.9.44 but it gets stuck at uploading exploit.

    And finally, tried iReb's iRecovery, but wont do anything....

    Any suggestions?

    Regards,

    PD: No i dont have the SDSH or whatever it is called. I don't know if cydia did actually got to save it, but i do know it wont restor it by modifying hosts file, could it be delayed? i mean, maybe tomorrow it will work? Or is it just a stupid idea...
    Pardon my english.

    Try this; put it in recovery mode (just get it to the connect to itunes logo)

    Open irecovery and type: irecovery.exe -s

    then input this:

    setenv auto-boot true
    saveenv
    reboot

    after it reboots back into restore mode, run blackra1n

    I did...when you asked about the commands i searched for a tutorial. I followed the steps but nothing....curious thing is my screen wasnt quiet equal to the one from the tutorial, mine said: Kernelcache invalid, or similar. Anyone know what that means? Other than i'm screwed...

    So...i'm starting to believe theres no way but to update to 3.1.3
    Could I have broken it that mouch that it won't recover? :S:S
