    Try separately in restore mode (USB picture) and DFU mode (black screen) and just keep trying. Took me a couple of goes for blackra1n to hook properly with my iPhone 3G.

    Ok, dump your iPod into DFU then follow this:

    1) Restore
    2) Make sure its up in iTunes able to sync and all that
    3) Sync the iPod, so put your apps and all that on.
    4) Once done, backup the iPod
    5) Open blackra1n (as an admin on vista / 7 - make sure you have the newest version RC3)
    6) Keep iTunes open, hit make it ra1n
    7) Let it do its thing
    8) iPod will reboot
    9) as its tethered iTunes USB screen will show after apple logo
    10) Now run blackra1n again with itunes open (should say iPod in recovery mode)
    11) It will boot up into jialbroken state

    Enjoy.

    so after Geohots face comes up, it doesn't reboot.

    Hum, that weird. How new is your iPod, like this month...?
