    Hello,

    my nephew tried do a jailbreak on his ipod touch he got last year. He used the p0sixspwn program for his ios 6.1.5.
    The program did run.. but cydia is nowhere to be found. I tried to do it again.. but it says that the system already seemed to be jailbroken

    But now his ipod touch keeps starting up almost all the time: it goes to the normal screen when he can select the apps.. but shortly afterwards the ipod stops working.. and will reboot again...

    I tried to get it recognized in itunes.. but I have no luck with it... also putting it in DFU mode is not been possible so for.

    I also noticed that I can't turn the wifi signal on.

    I see that this is quite an active and very helpful forum. So I would be so happy if I could find a way to help this young guy out so he can enjoy his music and video's again.


    Looking forward tou your feedback. And if you need additional information I will be glad to provide it.

    Thank you !

    Ps. Sorry for the bad english

    why aren't you able to enter DFU mode?

    if you can get the ipod touch 4th gen into DFU mode, then you should be able to restore without a problem

    and to save time, you might want to download the ipsw here: http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS6.1/091-3505.20131106.PosTg/iPod4,1_6.1.5_10B400_Restore.ipsw

    to use that ipsw to restore the ipod touch, after you enter DFU mode and itunes recognizes it in recovery mode, hold shift and then left click on restore. then choose the ipsw and the restore should go fine

    once on 6.1.5, try jailbreaking with p0sixspwn again

    note: DFU mode means the screen is complete black!

    For whatever reason, after I opened cydia the first time on my touch 4g, it prepared the filesystem as usual and rebooted; cydia and all the system apps were missing.

    Jailbreaking it on a fresh install is fine, so make a backup, restore from the backup, then jailbreak, I guess.



    If the iPod can boot you should be able to put it in DFU mode. You may need to try it on another laptop or computer since I've had issues with a computer not detecting a dfu'd device before.

    I tried the dfu mode several times but I can't seem to make it happen. It says that it should take three seconds to push the power button first. But the apple logo appears even within a second after holding that power button.
    I've seen a YouTube movie where they changed some files in the ipsw file to force the iPod into dfu mode while trying to restore with that file first. Afterwards I should make the restore with the ipsw file provided by Darricksailo above.
    Do you guys think it's okay to try it that way for getting into the dfu mode?

    you can try making a DFU ipsw using redsn0w if you really can't get into DFU mode

    try holding it for a shorter amount of time so the apple logo doesn't appear. try and change the timings to see if you can get into DFU mode

    Tried it...but the iPod went into recovery mode.
    Maybe I did something wrong and now it is completely restored and erased sadly.
    Can this device be jailbroken only by using the p0sixspwn tool. Because that was just hitting on button and all the work was done...or should i go another way?

    Can you get the device into DFU mode using redsn0w's DFU ipsw method?

    From the moment I touch the power button, the device switches to the apple logo and starts.

    I tried pushing the home button and power button at the same time also but it has the same affect. The device starts within the second.

    Don't know how to do it now...

    It's supposed to; if you keep holding them then it should disappear and then enter DFU mode.

    Can you try the DFU ipsw trick? Or does that not work?
