    Okay guys, so here's the run-down. I ordered this Ipod touch used not too long ago from ebay. After seeing friends with Jailbreaked ones, I knew I needed it. The problem that I'm having is that my ipod can't enter DFU mode. It's not like it gets stuck or anything. The damned thing just REFUSES to enter DFU mode. I'm not an idiot, I followed the timed instructions to a "T". And just to be sure, I repeated them a thousand times. My ipod boots into normal mode no matter what I do. I am attempting the jailbreak with the following components :

    ipod -
    • First Generation
    • Firmware 2.2.1
    • 16gb

    **Note : When I bought this ipod, it came with the 2.2.1 firmware installed on it. I believe that it was bought on the itunes Marketpace of the last owner. Will this be a problem for it on my itunes? (I have restored it and also used the "in ipod" feature to delete all media and settings)

    Mac -
    • Macbook
    • Intel Core 2 Duo
    • Mac OS X 10.5.3

    QuickPwn -
    • QuickPwn version 2.2.5

    I REPEAT, I AM NOT A MORON. My ipod literally REFUSES to boot into DFU mode!

    Does anyone have any type of solution to my problem?

    The only help I can provide is try a different Jailbreaking software. Or, try DFUing in iTunes, to see if the jailbreaking software you have IS the problem.

    I've tried both, and neither works. I've even tried entering DFU on my PC (Windows XP, iTunes 7.5.5). None of this works. Thank you for the attempt though.

    Is the iPod Touch on when you start the DFU process?

    No, I have it turned off but connected to my computer. I've also tried the process while it is on, and disconnected. None of them worked...=\. I do appreciate suggestions though.

    When I started my Jailbreak, the iPod was plugged in, and turned on, then I followed the directions (I was using Quickfreedom for my iPod touch 2g). It worked when I did it. Try it turned on and plugged in. Hope this helps.

    Has anyone ever heard of that though? By that, I'm referring to an ipod that is incapable of entering DFU mode.

    Is quickfreedom able to work with 2.2.1? And does quickfreedom require me to manually enter DFU mode?
