    I have a brand new ipod touch 4th gen running of 4.3.5

    I know what i have to do to jailbreak and everything.

    ipod into dfu mode,

    i know i put the ipod into dfu, im sure, i done it to my iphones plenty of times

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    I agree.
    Different computer, try different usb wire, different port etc....
    Both Redsnow and GP do work so there's something else not right.
    Like mentioned below you cant just use anything for any firmware version.
    GP doesnt work with 4.3.5 and redsnow will give you a tethered JB.

    Do you have iTunes installed?
    Greenpois0n won't wrk on 4.3.5

    thnx guys ur info really helped
    i tried other usb port as well as new wire

    also it helped me to have itunes open in the background
    with redsnow open

    and i held the home botton down through the whole process and then
    it finally worked and went passed the "expanding limrain"
    bec the first time it got stuck there, then i tried it again holding home and
    it worked perfect.

    thanks guys
