    ok so im on my moms job laptop
    and it belongs to the company so i cant download anything


    so anyway, i decided to use redsn0w 0.3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NdkGyI80XE

    and i've watched like 10 youtube vids on it so it seems very useful

    however when i follow the directions in the video
    i hold the power+home buttons and hear the first chime
    then i hold the home button till i hear the second chime

    i open up redsn0w and it does not tell me "DFU SUCCESSFUL"

    so i follow redsn0w's directions, it tells me what i need to do
    to put it in dfu mode, when i get to the last step "hold home button for 30 seconds' it closes out of redsn0w after 28 seconds

    my ipods screen is black, so i push the power and home button
    then push the power button and it turns back on perfectly

    but what i want to know is why does redsn0w keep closing out?
    is it because im not in dfu mode?
    or because of my computer or what?
    additional information: I have tried this like 10 times
    and have downloaded redsn0w 0.3 from 5 different sources

    yea but i dont think u need
    itunes to for redsn0w 0.3
    it also does not require firmware

    its a zip folder after you unzip it
    you click redsn0w.exe
    watch the video or take a look at it for
    yourself

    just asking: exactly what firmwear do your ipod run? is it 2.2.1?
    if yes do this: try to restore to get a clean non dfu mode softwear and then follow this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRyjmpzBKXo
