    I have been trying to jailbreak my 2nd Gen iPod Touch with firmware 3.1.2 multiple times now and it just won't work. I get the screen with the USB cable and the Itunes logo and then it goes black and doesn't reboot.

    EDIT: I've tried restoring, manually putting it into DFU mode, moving the blackra1n file... I don't know what else to do. Pwnage Tool says that your iPod must be jailbroken before using it and since blackra1n isn't working it seems like I'm out of options unless someone has a fix for me.

    EDIT 2: The model number starts with MB.

    Try this. Restore or flash the firmware again. Then rejailbreak it.

    I had the same problem

    What you do is, do the regular process. WHen it goes to the screen with the USB cable, close blackra1n and open and run it again.

    sorry if I was asking my own question under yours, just saying mine did work. Take a look at the website I posted and it might help you.

    It didn't. It's actually not relevant at all because I can't even jailbreak it in the first place. And "asking my question under yours" is thread jacking. Plus your question was something that a simple YouTube search and some research of the program could have answered. Save bandwith for the people with legitimate problems, not the lazy.

    Btw, geekatbirth, your way didn't work for me.

    I would wait, GeoHot, creator of BlackRa1n, will be releasing a new Blackra1n. The new one will make the jailbreak untethered.

    Hey guys, do me a favor and read the thread. It's a PC and a 2nd Generation touch.
