My ipod 16gb touch model a1288 make disabled and try again in 20990776 minute whats the problem with here


You need to restore it while in DFU mode. Follow these steps to put it to DFU mode:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.
WARNING!: Restoring will delete all data on your device, like songs, movies, notes including the jailbreak, if it's jailbroken.

If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures and some screenshots on my tip (link below):

NOTE: Those of you who rely on a carrier unlock MUST STAY AWAY from Redsn0w and iOS 4.2.1.
Follow the step by step instructions posted below to jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b4:
Step 1: Download iOS 4.2.1 for your version of iOS device.
Step 2: Update/Restore to iOS 4.2.1 using the IPSW file you just downloaded via iTunes 10.1.
Step 3: Start Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 and point it to iOS 4.2.1 firmware to proceed with the jailbreak.

redsn0w-0.9.6b4-1.pngredsn0w-0.9.6b4-2.pngStep 5: Now make sure your device is both OFF and PLUGGED IN to the computer before you click "Next".
screen-shot-2010-11-01-at-8.08.08-pm.pngAt this stage you will be presented with a screen where you will have to quickly hold "Power" button and then while holding the "Power" button, you will now have to hold "Home" button too. Now after few seconds release "Power" button but keep holding "Home" button until installation begins.
redsn0w-0.9.6b4-5.pngStep 6: Sit back and enjoy while redsn0w will do all the rest for you. Once done, your iPhone or iPod touch will restart automatically and you will find it jailbroken on the latest iOS 4.2.1 firmware.
For iPhone 4, 3GS (New Bootrom), iPod touch 4G / 3G / 2G, iPad ONLY:
Step 7:
Now from here onwards, whenever you want to do anything related to jailbreak like SSHing into your device, or running Cydia, you must first run your device in the so called "jailbroken state" on every reboot by using "Just boot tethered right now" option in Redsn0w.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 for Windows

HOW CAN I JAILBREAK MY IPOD TOUCH?


by using jailbreaking software

My ipod works, it just has a white screen, i tried holding the sleep/wake button menu, and restoring it and still have the same white screen...


Open Itunes on your computer. Unplug ipod if it's plugged in.
Turn Ipod off (with sleep/wake and home button).
Hold home button down and simultaneously plug in the Ipod again.
Keep holding it (home) until the screen is an apple with a usb underneath it (Itunes sign).
Then in Itunes choose restore your Ipod.

If it's jailbroken go through the Jailbreak process again.

I cant take my ipod touch off of standby


Hold the sleep button (top) and the home button (bottom) until the apple logo appears then let go and let it reboot.

If that doesn't fix your problem you may need to restore. To restore, hold down the sleep button (top) and the home button until the apple logo appears. As soon as it appears let go of the sleep button but keep the home button held.

After a few seconds a (plug into iTunes) message should appear. Do this now. iTunes will say your iPod needs to be restored, click the restore button now.

iTunes will then download the newest firmware for your iPod and perform a system recovery. This will wipe out everything on your iPod but don't worry, to re obtain everything just sync it with iTunes when the restore is done.

That should fix your problem, however. If it doesn't I am afraid to say that you will have to have it repaired by apple.

NOTE: If your iPod is jailbroken this will un-jailbreak it. You will have to reinstall everything after re-jailbreaking. I'm sorry for the incovenience.

Ipod touch v2 stuck at itunes connect


your ipod was jailbroken and now it is not.
no worries, go to quickpwn.com

Download the quickpwn software and jailbreak your ipod.
It's pretty easy,

but first what I would do, is download the itouch firmware version you want to restore to.
the file name will be something like this: iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw

Put your ipod in DFU mode:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
Restore it by pressing Restore and Shift at the same time. This will allow you to select the ipod firmware you downloaded.
Restore it and then do your jailbreak.
It will ask for the same firmware version you just restored to.
find it on your computer and do the J/B
I have the firmware on my computer, shoot me an email and i will send it,just let me know if you have a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen
