    For all those who have been seeing the deadly "Waiting for Reboot" phrase everytime you run redsn0w, i felt your pain. I tried every method for 2 days straight, but this method is all it took to get me past that step.

    When it says waiting for reboot, start to reset your iPod by holding power and home until the apple logo comes up.

    Release power, and hold home until it enters DFU mode and it and VOILA it should continue from there.

    WARNING: DO NOT LET IT START ALL THE WAY! BOOT RIGHT INTO DFU MODE!

    (although for me it got stuck after that somewhere else)

    P.S. May not work for everybody

    My solution was downloading a new 3.0 ipsw and starting over. I had already jailbroken mine, and tried to jailbreak my friend's with the same ipsw. It doesn't work that way.

    The redsn0w app does something to the ipsw that has to be redone everytime you use it.

    And BTW: Obviously if you haven't used your ipsw yet then this is completely useless information to you. Just thought I'd post it anyway, just in case.
