    I have done a jailbreak with no problems many times on my iPhone 3g. Today I decided to jb my daughters touch. First I updated the firmware to 2.2.1 then started re steps to JB it. When I did the "shift restore" and then browsed to the 2.2.1 firmware I had downloaded - I got an error half way through it. It said the iPod could not be restored and gave an error code of 5 -

    I then had to restore and re-sync to get it back to where I started. This happened twice and I am unable to JB it.

    Any thoughts on what is wrong?

    Keep trying. You'll need to put it in DFU mode every time for this to work. It's tough, I've had my iPhone error and I would near cry but kept trying, and trying and finally it worked. Switch USB ports, switch from PC -> OSx or vice versa.

    Bottom line, you're not screwed just keep at 'er.
