    Hey guys,

    I have a weird problem tryin' to get into DFU mode.
    I have to re-jailbrek my iPod Touch 2G and while I'm trying to put it into DFU mode it just won't work because my iPod turns on, while I#m trying to do this.

    So, again: My ipod is OFF, I'm holding down power & home till it reboots, then I'm releasing the power button but keep holding down home and my iPod turns back on.
    I have no idea why and how, but help would be greatly appreciated...

    I've done this a hundred times before, that's why it's so weird now...

    Help please

    i think its because your ipod its totally off yet.
    In order to REALLY switch off the ipod, you need to press Power button for 3 secs and an option to SLIDE to OFF will appear.

    By just pressing off button without the SLIDE to OFF appearing its just going to sleep mode.

    hope its helpful!

    After the screen goes black from holding home & power, you need to wait 1-2 seconds after your screen turns off to release the power button.

    So, home & power until the screen goes black.
    When the screen goes black, keep holding for another 1-2 seconds, then release power and continue holding home.

    That should do it.
