    Hi,

    I have a second generation itouch with a 2.2.1 firmare installed. I use windows with vista. I tried using rednow to jailbreak. I downloaded redsnow and put my itouch in dfu mode, I opened redsnow while in dfu mode and my itouch started to dowload all of the programs. It seems like it downloaded everything but then the apple logo shows up and gets stuck there.

    What am I doing wrong? Should I use a computer with XP?

    Anyhow, I had to restore my ipod because it was stuck at the apple logo. But I would like to try it again.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Never tried Vista but have never failed with redsn0w on XP. One issue might be that you're not following the on screen prompts. I know that when you fire up redsn0w you have to point it to the 3.0 ipsw, hit ok, let it process the file, hit ok again and the next screen specifically states to make sure your iPod is OFF and plugged in before proceeding to where you actually put it into DFU mode...not be in DFU mode 'already'. Just a suggestion.
