well, i had a problem with 2g jailbreak and no-one knew the answer, but i think i know why. problem was, got to the white screen bit where i installed the firmware on my ipod, and itunes wouldn't detect it Possible solution: well my computer has a virus that makes it unusable, and since its 6 years old were just gonna go out and buy a new one, so until then im using my school laptop at home. i temporarily installed itunes to jailbreak. is it possible that some restriction on the computer is preventing itunes from picking up my ipod 2g in its white screen state? cheers, Alex EDIT- new computer will be fresh with vista, so i hope it works.
