    I downloaded redsnow .9.5b5-5 and downloaded the ios4.0. firmware
    problem is that redsnow is not recognizing the firmware
    i tried with multiple sources of the firmware and redsnow and it still does not work
    one worked but redsnow said processing file for 4 hours
    I have a ipod touch 2g mb 4.0.2
    help?
    any other way to jailbreak?

    Try restarting both the device and the computer. I had the same issue.

    i did, but it went all okay till the end where it said to hold the buttons i did that
    then it said waiting for reboot fir 3 hours
    my ipod touch screen is black and it doesn't show the downloading jailbreak data thing on my screen
    i'm pretty sure i followed instructions

    Start the process over again. That can happen sometimes.

    Try holding down the power button and home button at the same time and see if it will startup...do you have iTunes open?

    Unplug the device from the computer. Hold down the power button and home button at the same time for 10 seconds. Release the home button and continue holding the power button. See if that will reboot your device.

    normal mode or dfu mode, both didn't work
    I'm gonna make a video tom showing my process and perhaps you can correct me
    the only thing I can think of is that maybe apple screwed up and perhaps mine is a mc and mb, but seems very unlikely

    So, can you start your iPod touch normally? Just so it gets to the SpringBoard?
