Sorry for cross-posting this, but I think it was in the wrong forum to begin with. Anyways... This should be pretty self-explanatory... the firmware I'm using with redsn0w is iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw which I believe is the right one... according to my iTouch the current firmware is 3.0 (7A341). I remember having a similar problem before with an earlier version of redsn0w and the 2.2.1 firmware, but I can't remember how I got past it. OS: OS X 10.5.7 Processor: PPC Please Register or Log in to view images Where do I go from here? (to be clear my iPod still starts up and works just like it should) My problem is that it won't go past the first reboot, it says Loading first stage or something like that, then Waiting for reboot, and then it just sits there...
