    I made the notion and have started to Jailbreak my iPod with the 1.1.2 Software Update on it. All is going well so far. First, I downloaded that OktoPrep software and then performed the update. After climbing through the software update process, I finally got to the "Slide To Unlock" screen. But now, the little spinning thing in the middle (like what you see after you download an App) is now constantly spinning. Once in a while it will stop, and then my iPod look ready to be unlocked, then it comes back.

    Will repost once i've moved on

    Any questions, you know who I am.:rolleyes::apple:

    The exact same thing happened to me !!!

    I just don,t know why this happened...I did all correctly, like you.

    Now, what I'm currently doing is a restore. I cliked on both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time and connected it to iTunes and clicked Restore. It's now downloading. I hope this will solve my problem. I think I might not jailbreak 1.1.2 as of now. Might wait for 1.1.3 or whatever it is to come out before attempting a jailbreak...

    In conclusion of my fiasco, I had to restore my iPod under Recovery Mode. Scanned Google far and wide for 1.1.1, went to Jailbreakme.com, did the OktoPrep.app thing, and used the Windows.bat file. Worked perfectly.:D:apple:

    After doing a restore yesterday, today, I went in /library/iTunes/SoftwareUpdates and there, I found the 1.1.1 firmware. I downgraded to that. After that, I jailbroke my iPod with jailbreakme.com. Then I updated to 1.1.2 and used the package made by the DevTeam to jailbreak. Everything went smooth during the process. All my apps are back on my Touch now. I just don't know why the first time it didn't work...I'm writing this from my jailbroken 1.1.2 iTouch !
