This is a long shot, but I have an iPod touch that's been disabled for like 20mil minutes. Is there any way possible to force it into DFU mode? It was bought off some police auction site and it came that way.

An ipod touch can go into dfu even if it is disabled. Hold the power and home button until the screen turns off, then let go of only the power button and you should be in DFU mode.

you could force it into recovery mode using tinyumbrella then restore it with itunes.

If it's the home button that's fucked,then i'm sorry but you can't jailbreak. GP required DFU mode and to do that, you need a working power and home button. I would suggest to keep trying if the home button works half the time.

Just an update on my problem. I ended up putting the iPod into recovery mode somehow and was able to update it and now I was trying to jailbreak it, and it stayed in a recovery loop. So now I have it in DFU mode restoring to 4.2.1.
