I was just trying to pwn an iPod touch previously restored to 1.1.4 through iTunes 7.5 (although I then installed 7.7 before trying out Winpwn 126.96.36.199 RC1). However, after following the steps (although I made the mistake of using what may have been older linked iTunes.dlls for Winpwn to use, since it already had the dlls inside as of 1.0), the pwnage stopped midway while using a 1.1.4 restore, and the screen went black. Tried to turn it on with the standby button, nothing happens. Also, it won't connect to iTunes. No recognition in Windows (the USB sound doesn't ring), either. So when I try to run diagnostics tests in iTunes on the iPod, it won't recognize it. Winpwn also doesn't recognize it, asking me to "connect the iPhone in Recoverymode". The iPod is connected to the USB and the power at the time was already full. It won't wake up no matter if I hold the home and sleep/standby button combo down for 10 seconds or a whole minute. It just won't wake up for any reason. I know that this issue is similar to this thread, but I was using the "more secure" 188.8.131.52 of Winpwn. I'm probably more fearful that this may have affected the hardware connection or detection between the bricked iPod touch and the PC that won't recognize it at all. For the record, I was having issues with trying to put the iPod touch in blank DFU mode rather than the recovery mode with the iTunes+USB icon. While connected though USB, it continued to boot back automatically into the iTunes+USB icon mode rather than the blank mode that it was doing under iTunes 7.5. That's why I resorted to the Winpwn method (which looked conspicuously like Ziphone, another GUI jailbreak solution that messed up stuff like SSH access on the same iPod touch), since I couldn't manually DFU the iPod touch. Finally, this is a gift iPod touch from a relative, who bought it at a third party rather than at an Apple store (it was either Best Buy or Wal-Mart), so I don't think I can take this to Apple and say that I was trying to legally upgrade to 2.0 (which was my future intention), when I don't even have a warranty with them. If this comes across as a sob story from a noob, I apologize. I've jailbroken my iPod touch before (even before I touched Ziphone or Winpwn), so I wasn't expecting this outcome at all. ------------------double post merged------------------OK, after the umpteenth try (not literally) with pressing home+standby for 10 sec. and releasing standby while keeping home pressed until you hear the USB sound, iTunes finally opened and the screen went white for a while. Then it went back to black, and itunes was "Waiting for iPod" for quite a bit, then it popped up with an "unknown error (1605)".
