    ok, so here goes. i got the ipod 3.0 firmware. i got redsnow. i got my 2g ipod touch. i went about trying to jailbreak. stupidly of me, i forgot to update to the 3.0 frimware so i was dumping the 3.0 ipsw onto ther redsnow app and itd do stuff and my ipod would say installing jailbreak blah blah blah. well redsnow would say it was done, but my ipod would show the same image. so i restarted and tried again. no go. i fiinally noticed i didnt update the firmware. i went and did so and tried redsnow. well it did some stuff andf alas, my ipod showed a white screen! WHAT IS THIS!? i say. no. i restored to the plain old 3.0 firmware and now my ipod restores to the white screen and i can restart and boot into 3.0 but if i put my ipod into sleep mode and bring it back, i get a white screen, but i can slide my finger across the slider and hear my ipod unlock. wtf is wrong? sometimes is goes to the white screen and gets stuck and lots of other stuff. any ideas?

    im thinking of maybe formatting my ipod completely and trying again but ill wait for a second opinion. OPINIONS!? =D

    There is suppose to be a white screen when jailbreaking. . . just put it into DFU mode and shift click restore to OFW.

    This is what you're going to do:
    1. Put your Ipod into DFU
    2. Click update in itunes, and get a clean3.0
    3. Use redsnow
    4. Be Patient
    5. Have fun.
    6. If this doesnt work for you, find the nearest hammer and hit your ipod until it complies

    seriously.. one that last comment is VERY unnecessary.. and 2, u have to DFU restore for a CLEAN 3.0. if u just update, u don't lose anything, and ur just writing over ur old firmware with the new one. any issues that u had with the old FW will remain. with a DFU restore, everything is gone and ur ipod is truly CLEAN.

    so... @OP: DFU restore. don't update. put ur ipod into DFU mode. just to make sure that everything works and u don't get a white screen. if u don't, then ur good to go, run redsn0w, and make sure its 7.2 (which i believe is the latest version), and then enjoi. other than that, if u get the white screen... i'd say... take it back 2 ur apple store.
