    I tried putting it in DFU but it does not show a message saying that it has found a device...does this mean no DFU for me?

    I give up on the forum LOL. I literally, and actually counting, have seen >10 threads already on this SAME TOPIC. READDDDDFASFDASFADSF

    DFU -> Restore is always possible, regardless of any other factors in play (considering you didn't completely be a moron, override signature and range checks, and try to to f*** your nor0 by writing all over it with bdev).

    There's no such thing as not being able to put your iPod in DFU Mode. And your iPod can't be bricked, semi-bricked, a quarter-bricked, ect. It just can't be. Period.

    Anyway, it seems like your not putting it into DFU mode right. Use a timer if you have to.

    Home+Power for 10 seconds.
    Home for 8 seconds.

    watch some youtube videos and see how to put your ipod into DFU mode.


    NO ipod touch can be bricked, NONE!!!!!

    this happend with me when i was restoring and used DHowett's verbose patch, it seems to always wish to boot the iPod into recovery mode as a pose to DFU mode, how i stopped that was erasing iboot and the llb from the nor, in iRecovery boot into recovery mode and do "bdev erase nor0 0x8000" i believe, i'm not entirely sure, if that fails upload a random file and do "bdev write nor0 0x8000" and restore, if you can't get into recovery mode, put your iPod into DFU mode, upload the 2.1.1 iBSS and do the redsn0w commands, then do the commands I said, then try restore your iPod

    Use QuickFreedom, just follow the steps it has...it will reboot your device in a proper state (white screen) when you enter DFU mode....its the only program that i used when i had something similar and worked.
