    hi,
    i am currently using windows 7. i tried to jailbreak it on here and it went to recovery mode. it won't go out, i've tried everything.
    i read that windows 7 isn't compatible with itunes.. so i plugged in my ipod, and it froze, i'm thinking its in recovery mode too.
    i originally jailbroke my phone the first time on windows xp, it worked fine. do you think i just need to restore it on windows xp?
    thanks abunch.

    iTunes works fine on my win7-computer. Perhaps your jailbreak is tethered. Do a search here on the forum to learn more about tethered jailbreak.
    Have you installed the chipset-drivers for your motherboard?

    Yeah same here. Win7 on all my PC's and iTunes works on all of them.

    +1 It's not Windows 7.

    Double check that you have the most up to date version of iTunes.

    A post from LVCIFER from the "Restart won't work" thread:
    TETHERED JAILBREAK!!!

    Do a search for "tethered jailbreak"!

    If this is a new 3G[s], then it can still be jailbroken or unlocked, but you just can't ever let the battery die, or reboot the iPhone when the iPhone is not near a computer.

    Why?

    The phone is new. Apple updated the hardware on newer models. Ultimately, when you get the "Connect to iTunes" message, DO NOT RESTORE.

    Connect the iPhone to the computer, spend 30 seconds, run Blackra1n RC3/4, RE-jailbreak, and that's it.

    It takes less than a minute.
    I'd post a link to it but I haven't reached 10 posts yet.

    EDIT: I also can confirm Windows 7 isn't the problem as I've jailbroken both a iPhone 2G & 3G in W7 64-bit and didn't have a single problem.
