I just upgraded iTunes to 18.104.22.168 (Windows Vista x64) and upgraded my 2G iPod Touch to 3.1.2. I previously had jailbroken 3.0. All of my music, videos, non-jb apps come up and work just fine. Now when I run blackra1n, it just stops at "entering recovery...". The iPod has the connect-to-iTunes screen (so far for about 10 minutes), and isn't doing anything. iTunes is open and recognizes the device as being in recovery mode. I tried running blackra1n again, and now it just says "waiting for phone..." and with no effect on the iPod. As a note, the blackra1n picture never came up on my iPod. I tried restoring and not letting iTunes restore my settings/music/videos, etc, but had the same effect. I restored again and exited iTunes (and killed all of its helper processes), but that didn't help either. I restored yet again and let iTunes restore everything and then quit iTunes, but had the same problem. Now I went back to the first option (don't restore settings/music/videos, etc, with iTunes running) and let blackra1n sit there for a while, and nothing happened. I downloaded blackra1n from blackra1n.com, moved it to C:\. Went into properties, clicked the "Unblock" button, and set the program to run in compatibility mode with XP. Then ran blackra1n as Administrator. iTunes has not given any errors (other than the "recovery mode" warning). Why is blackra1n not succeeding, and (more importantly) what should I do to successfully jailbreak? Thanks in advance for anyone's help!
