How to fix some mysterious problems.

As the title say it crashes as soon as i click the jailbreak button after getting to DFU mode on my ipod touch 4g. I am sure that im on gp rc5. I also am on win7 64bit. I know that 64bit windows did cause errors before when jail breaking.

I have jb'd a few on Win7 64bit with no problems. You might try another usb port or usb cable on that system. One thing to is, if you updated to the newest itunes before jailbreak, reboot your machine. If not, maybe update to the latest and reboot your machine anyway and see if that fixes it.

Ive not tried it, try to boot your windows 7 into safe mode with networking and try to jailbreak. (Hit F8 before it boots the os and just after the bios displayed its last bit of info) and try to jb then after it boots up.

I would rather recommend trying another machine though. If you dont have another system to try, try it in safe mode. Good Luck!

That didn't work as well how ever the program did not crash it basically could only reboot my ipod then it would say jailbreak failed.

Try another computer :) or another USB cable. Try another USB port. But you say you tried that already. :) I cant think of anything else.

Did you get to try another computer?
