    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

    if someone can help me I will give them 100 dollars through paypal
    im not kidding you have my email t.emelio@yahoo.com

    ok, me wants the 100 bucks
    haha

    if your moms computer is runnin vista, then right click reds0w.exe, show its properties, tick "run as admin", and in the compatibility tab use "windows xp sp2", that should fix it

    ^^ u answered your question You Doby Have iTunes u need iTunes so you can restore it to the 2.2.1 cfw and redsnow I think is:

    open redsnow first > plugin your device > let iTunes do it's work > exit outta iTunes > turn ur device off and MAKE SURE ITS STILL PLUGGED IN > hold w.e YouTube tells you to do ( I recommend tysiphonehelp video for the jailbreak of 2.2.1 ) I think you hold the power button 5 seconds then home+power 3 seconds and then let go of power but still holding the home and then let redsnow do the rest of the magic then viola your done!
