    Hi, i'm a complete noob, so please bear with me
    i tried to jailbreak my itouch 4g with redsn0w
    I successfully got to the part when i had to hold down the home button and let go of the power button
    So the installation began. The picture of the green arrow pointing down on the usb came out on my itouch
    that's when i let go of the home button. I think i did something wrong, because the installation suddenly froze and redsn0w was closed unexpectedly
    The picture of the arrow pointing to the usb was still on the itouch
    so i held down the power button and the itouch turned off
    i think i turned it back on and restored it
    the itouch was successfully restored because i had a backup of my previous settings
    my question is, is my itouch in an O.K. state?
    What did i do wrong?
    can i try attempt to jailbreak my itouch again with redsn0w?
    Thanks, i've never jailbroken before so i kind of freaked out..

    If you don't notice anything weird, it is probably in an OK state. And sure, you can try to jailbreak again.

    It's in an OK state. You can try jailbreaking again although if your a "complete noob" as you say I can't really recommend jailbreaking, that's beside the point though.

    I'd watch some videos on YouTube of Tysiphone help to get the process down first, then try again.

    Thank you everyone for responding
    i tried to jailbreak my ipod once more and it worked
    instead of holding down the home button, i immediately released it after the installation began
