    ok why is it that if you want to jailbreak 2.0 that you have to either try for like ever to get your ipod to restore or downgrade itunes. wtf is that? and also if i were to downgrade to itunes 7.5 will i lose all my apps? im talking about whether it will show up in the apps folder or not

    Why downgrade, and dfu mode is EASY to get into.

    First: shut off iphone/ipodt.
    Second:
    Hold down power and home for exactly 10 seconds.
    Third:
    Let go off the power button at exactly 10 seconds.
    Fourth:
    Continue to hold down home button until itunes sees you in restore mode
    Five:
    botta bing, PWNAGE!!!

    What do you expect? you expect them to help you with pwning? that seems a little momma, i want my cookie NOW!!!!!

    If you have to downgrade you can move your apps, downgrade, then upgrade again and put your apps back.
