    ok well if u have been following the issue i have not been able to jailbreak my ipod.....but i have made some progress (thanks to everyone who has helped me) but now i have came across a new problem i have gotten to the part of the jailbreak where geohots face comes up but now its just stuck there and the spinning circle appears and my ipod does nothing(its currently at this state....)
    can anyone help me out....am i missing something here...

    btw:
    i have a 3g 8gb ipod touch firmware 3.1.2

    update:
    right after i posted this my ipod reboot
    what do i do next...
    do i run "blackra1n" again...i dnt have the icon on my ipod
  2. Hmm...try restoring and/or your iPod before trying again? Then make sure you kill all iTunes related services/proccesses:

    -iTunes helper
    -AppleMobileDevice
    -iPod Service

    And don't listen to anyone saying if you are using windows 7 you need to run "blackra1n.exe" in compatibility mode, as I jailbroke my 3G 8GB iPod touch with blackra1n on Windows 7 32-bit without having to do anything crazy (like run as administrator, or moving it to "c:\", blah blah).

    BTW, can you describe what state your iPod is in? Like is it in DFU mode or whatever? Can you restart your iPod and have it start up normally? (Apple Logo, Lockscreen, Springboard), or do you see a USB Cable connect to iTunes thing?
