Redsn0w - waiting for reboot - searched and tried solutions already
Hey everyone, I know you probably get tons of people asking this question, but I'm stuck on the waiting for reboot in redsn0w. Here's all the information I can give:
Most recent iTunes
iPod Touch 2nd Gen (non-mc)
current firmware: official 4.0, using "iPod2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw"
Windows 7 and Windows Xp
Things I tried:
all combinations of compatibility mode/run as admin in win7
safe mode in win7
restore iPod and try again
restart computer after initial stage of jb
manually shutdown iPod and put back into dfu mode
manually shutdown iPod and put back into recovery mode
note: when I do this, the jb will continue like it should and get to finish, but nothing happens on the iPod. It just stays on the iTunes plug screen the whole time.
unplug and replug cable in same and different ports
older version of redsn0w
removing all options but "install cydia" in redsn0w
I'm sure that I'm putting it into dfu and recovery mode correctly because I can tell from the device manager. From what I've read it sounds like the only problem would be the ipsw, but I'm sure I have the right one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
