    I have searched and read and have run into a brick wall. I'd love to jailbreak my ipod (version 2.2.1). I am trying to JB it on a PPC Mac (iBook G4). I have tried using the Untetherizer and I have tried using some other program (Full Sn0w I believe).

    My problem is with going into DFU. I have used a timer and have done the power and home buttons according to the times. The screen on the ipod goes black so I assumed it was in DFU. The problem is now iTunes will not recognize the ipod until I re-boot the computer. It's as if it is killing my USB ports.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    lemme guess? using windows vista 64? there is no way around it. ive tried every walkthrough to get libusb to work and none of them work. i ended up with the same problem you are having. i ended up stealing my roommates laptop and using xp to jailbreak.

    He just said on a G4 PPC. Which is a mac, not Windows, definetly not x64.


    I have no idea...I have DFU Problems too in many situations
