    JUST A QUESTION.
    when jailbreaking, does this "waiting for reboot" part take quite a few minutes usually? :c

    Wait around ten more minutes, just to be safe. If it still doesn't work, disconnect, then reconnect it. It should reboot.

    Okay, thanks.

    When I was doing that process where you have to hold the power button, then the power button and menu button together, i didn't do it exactly as it said...

    I mean, I did the first two steps right, then the third one said "Now release the power button but keep holding the home button for 30 seconds", and it was doing the countdown but moved to the next stage in 15 seconds, not 30, so i let go...

    might this have been a problem? :C

    I'm also waiting for reboot. I've restored various times, tried many many times. Been trying for 5 hours. Using everything perfectly, since I managed to JB mine yesterday. Now I'm trying for my co-worker and nothing. Any idea? Any CMD I could use to force reboot?

    Hold power and home buttons for ten seconds.

    The thing with letting go earlier is not a problem, that happens on my iPod too. Hold the home and power button for ten seconds like said before, (^) and if it still doesn't turn on, hold the home button, and then connect your ipod while still holding it. You'll be able to restore then.

    Keep in mind, this will take you to Restore Mode. You can then boot with iRecovery, if it comes to that.
