    well i had to be an idiot and play around with the tethered jailbreak and now im paying for it.
    i went through the whole process and got up to restoring all my stuff back onto the touch (songs, games etc) and all of the sudden the restore is finished and my ipod doesnt change from a black screen.
    when i plug it in i hear the sounds and when i put it into DFU mode and restore it it says that it cant find the firmware or something along those lines.
    i would really appreciate somebody's help because my IT is very important to me as it probably is for everyone else
    so please x a million
    and if you are going to help me please be as specific as possible
    again i really appreciate
    g-d bless you all

    What, specifically, is the error message you receive from iTunes when you connect it to your computer?

    Have you tried "forcing it" to restore again?

    Alright-if I understand your problem correctly, you have a few things to try.

    First-Plug in your ipod, force restore it, and when it is recognized after the restore (when it gives the error, click "Check for Update" and -hopefully- it will download and sync the firmware on your IT.

    If that doesnt work-try to find the firmware in one of the iTunes sub-folders. Sorry I am not sure of the exact directory. If the firmware is there, you have a problem with your iPod and should schedule a genius appointment. Chances are (as with my experiences) they will replace it.

    If the firmware is not there and the Check for Updates doesnt download the required firmware, you can try downloading a torrent copy...but I do not advise this as there have been many cases of the torrent firmware screwing up your iPod.

    Hope this helps.

    Have you tried what Matt said, pressing the "check for updates" button?

    READ:mad:, when you jailbreak the iPod touch 2g you need to use a boot helper to boot it up. When you restored from a back-up iTunes restarted your ipod, to fix this all you need to do is use a boot helper and run the redsn0w patch and it should boot up fine

    the 2g jailbreak is tethered, meaning you have to connect your ipod to your computer and run the redsn0w patch everytime you want to reboot

    What blackbelt is trying to say is that you need to do this every time you boot your iPod:

    After your restore is complete, put you iPod into DFU mode, you’ll have to apply the patch again to boot.
    You will also have to do these same things each time you boot from now on:

    Code:
    iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu

    Unplug your iPod, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in.
    Your screen should be white now.
    Run the following after:

    Code:
    iRecovery -s
    arm7_stop
    mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014
    mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02
    mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0
    mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000
    mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d
    mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0
    mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe
    mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300
    arm7_go
    arm7_stop
    /sendfile iBSS221.dfu
    go
    /exit

    Wait for your iPod to reconnect (it should disappear in iTunes, then reappear in a couple seconds).
    Run the following:

    Code:
    iRecovery -f iBoot221.img3
    iRecovery -s
    go
    /exit
