How to fix some mysterious problems.

As title says, I've got a pretty old iPod touch 8GB, 2nd generation, MC I want to jailbreak, and downloaded both redsn0w and greenpois0n. I've been following the DFU Mode instructions, but the device boots as if it's booting normally. I don't know what to do. Can somebody help me? Thanks.

Make sure that you're holding the power and home buttons lightly instead of really hard. That seems to make a difference on some devices.
