    i recently tried to jailbreak my ipod touch 2g with rslite. everything was completed until the reboot part. so now ipod wont respond to anything (tried to get into dfu mode multiple times and holding down home and power keys doesn't do anything). just a black screen. my computer wont recognize it either.
    so when i enter code "./rslite" i get the response "Apple Mobile Device not found in recovery or dfu"

    if any one can help....thanks

    What version of Redsn0w did you use? Sounds like you used the tethered version.
    To solve, put your iPod into DFU mode - Instructions here
    Then re-jailbreak with a newer version of RedSn0w (0.7 or above)

    I looked at the dfu mode link but the problem with my ipod is that its is completely unresponsive. so pushing the power+home keys isnt doing anything.
    i just downloaded redsn0w 7.0. but I still need the ipod to somehow get recognized on computer.

    Ah sorry, didn't read your post correctly. If the buttons aren't responding, that usually means physical damage - so I suggest you take it back to apple (but make sure there is no evidence of it being jailbroken)

    i think i got a similar problem, i restored my ipod from 3.0 to 2.2.1, but i forgot to put it in DFU before the restore, in the end of the restore, i got error 17, and now the ipod is totally unresponsive, it dosen't react when i try to put it in DFU (have tried like 10 times, and it don't work), no reaction when i try to do a hardreboot, and the computer dosen't seems to be able to se the ipod (i have tried on 2 different computer, and on 3 different OS's (2 XP and 1 WIN 7).

    Its unusual for the buttons to become unresponsive due to software damage. Only physical damage should cause this to happen.

    I know, the DFU-mode is coded into the memory of the ipod, it's also therefore i find this VERY strange.

    ok taking it back seems like a good idea right now. i think i should be good evidence-wise because all i did was put on new firmware.
    tell me if you get any break throughs R&S

    Make sure you're doing the DFU correctly, just because the screen isn't doing anything does not mean that the DFU is unsuccessful.
