    Ok,
    So everything was going really well, until step 14, where I got a little confused. It says:

    "14) you will now need to restore in iTunes with your custom ipsw.
    to do so, open iTunes, HOLD SHIFT and click the restore button,
    a window should open, navigate to the Xpwn folder and select custom221.ipsw

    (this will take a few mins)
    when its done it will try to boot (apple logo)
    just put it back into dfu mode again."

    I selected custom221.ipsw and then it started loading. Then, it got to a point where the apple logo appeared. iTunes was still doing some stuff though, and the boot logo was there for a long time. I decided I would just put it into DFU mode. I made a mistake while doing this, though, and it went to recovery mode. Then i got it to go to DFU mode, and I continued the rest of the tutorial. But when I got to the end of the tutorial, where it was suppose to boot up normally, it didn't. It didn't do anything. Its not even being recognized. It won't turn on at all. Should i recover it and start the tutorial over again? Is this even possible? Is my iPod broken now?

    Thanks for the help,
    Danny

    I have no experience with the Run RS, but the sad smiley face used in the thread seems like your worried that your iPod is broken.
    It's not

    , every single problem has and can be resolved on the iPod using DFU mode. Everyone makes the mistake of freaking out over minor errors, don't worry bout it.

    Well im glad that my ipod touch isnt broken. After Im in DFU mode where do I start in the tutorial? should i just start over? Because i finished the first part of the tutorial, i just don't think i finished it correctly.

    Oh, and btw, I did get it in DFU mode after i accidently got it in recovery mode, its the thing before that that worries me.

    Yeah best to start again on the tutorial at step 11. Don't have iTunes while doing this.

    Oh, and one more thing. When the iPod Touch has the Apple logo, but itunes still says preparing ipod to restore or something, should i launch my ipod into DFU mode?

    No just wait for it to fully finish. Was there like a bar under the apple when you did that or did it already finish that?

    There was no bar on the ipod if thats what your asking. Right now the loading window of itunes says: Preparing Ipod for Restore. Then, below that is the green loading bar. But on the Ipod its just the apple.
