    Tired of these threads. Hope this works. Updated 03/02/2009. [March 2]. Message to Moderators: Please change the title thread to "[WINDOWS & MAC] Getting out of the Recovery Mode Problem [SOLUTION]"

    Prerequisites:
    -2.1.1 Firmware [for the iBSS211]
    -iBSS211.dfu in iRecovery Directory. Read a tutorial to get this.
    -iRecovery
    -An iPod touch in Recovery Mode and cannot restore
    -An original firmware to restore to

    Step 1: Put your iPod touch in DFU mode, plug into computer (not neccesarily in that order)

    Windows:
    Code:
    iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu 
    
    Unplug and Replug your iPod, the screen becomes white
    Code:
    iRecovery -s
    setenv boot-path /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/kernelcache.s5l8720x
    
    Mac [NEW]:
    Code:
    ./rslite
    !iBSS211.dfu
    
    Code:
    setenv boot-path /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/kernelcache.s5l8720x
    
    BOTH:
    And then Restore to 2.2.1. That's it. Thanks to gojohnnyboi for correcting my saveenv error in one of my previous posts. If there are any errors or ommissions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks. Really helped me.

    For mac users:

    Start rslite, type

    !iBSS211.dfu

    the screen becomes white

    type

    setenv boot-path /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/kernelcache.s5l8720x

    reconnect your iPod (I had to do that)

    than restore to 2.2.1

    I think after typing !iBSS211.dfu, you have to unplug and replug your iPod touch.

    No, you don't. You only have to do that in windows, not on a mac!

    Okay, thanks, editing post. Sorry, I rarely use my mac for jailbreaking, and know little about rslite.

    is this only for semi-jailbreak?

    It's for any way that you got your iPod in recovery mode. Most common way of people doing this is trying the semi-tethered

    My ipod touch is stuck in recovery mode after trying semi-tethered jailbreak and i have tried many things to get it out. I followed all your instructions and after updating to 2.2.1 it is still stuck in recovery. Here is what I did:

    Then unplugged ipod, rebooted (recovery) and updated to 2.2.1 using original ipsw.




    I am scared that my beloved ipod is lost forever. Please help me.

    P.S. I am using all original files

    Also, did it in dfu mode, recovery mode didnt turn the screen white.
