    so, i was doing the jailbreak guide in this thread : http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=367253
    i got to the PuTTY and then i get a connection error so i had to abort the process. i rebooted my ipod, and then i went in itunes to restore it. so when i plugged it in it said the contents of my ipod could not be read, go under the summary tab and press restore. so i go to restore it and i get through the first step and then it says the ipod could not be restored. and then i get a little thing at the end that says (-18).
    Oh, and i tried to repeat the jailbreak again but now the black command box has been on patching ipod flash image for the last 2 hours.

    you need to hold the sleep and home button at the same time. keep holding, when it turns back on let go of sleep button. keep holding home button until the connect to itunes icon appears
