    Isn't there supposed to be some Spongebob like pineapple guy that shows up after you do it. For me it doesn't, it will flash white while doing the kernel nonsense and "first exploit" stuff. When I click finish, my ipod just sits there, none of the buttons work. Debug mode or DFU whatever its called doesn't work, nor does Recovery mode. Only unpluging it from my laptop does. And worst of all, winamp doesn't pick it up when I do this, but does before I try jailbreaking it.

    I am running Vista 64 with a IpT2G 3.0. The other threads of similar problems solution's did not work, advice please.

    Edit--------------------------------
    third time ended in a white screen and then nothing.
    Tried it again and ended in a white screen, redsnow still completed.
    Watched a youtube video and did it at the same time, the guy on the video got images to appear actually on his ipod...

    ive tried run as admin and run as xp but seperatly. I'll try both. All ive managed to do so far is delete vid firmware and install 3.0. The black or white screen after is getting annoying.

    Nope running as Windows XP SP2 AND as an administrator still gave the the white screen. I have the 64 bit fix for LibUsb too. :< It shouldn't be this difficult to jailbreak this thing, not since youtubers do it so leisurely.

    have you tried rebooting, restarting your computer, or restore yet?

    I have so far:
    (Yes I started tallying after a while at this fail)

    Reinstalled Itunes 3 times
    DFU'd 28 times
    Ran Redsnow .7.2 and .8 about 30 times now
    Restarted my computer 5 times
    Installed and uninstalled and reinstalled the LibUSB Vista 64 fix.
    Asked my mom if I could use her laptop and she said no and that I shouldn't be jailbreaking anything lol.
    Run QuickFreedom, didn't work.

    Update: I just did it again, it says the following
    Waiting for reboot
    First Exploit
    Waiting for reboot
    something else(not kernel)
    DONE!

    isn't there more? While it does that, my ipod flashes white like 2 times and on the second time it stays white. DFU'ing after that just brings me back to a normal ipod that has been reset with nothing on it.
