Usually the problem is how u put it in dfu mode, Hold the power and home button count from 1 to 10 like this, 1 Mississippi 2 Mississippi 3 Mississippi , until 10 then release the power button while still holding the home button until a u hear a sound as if u just connected ur ipod and itunes pops up saying ITUNES HAS DETECTED IPOD IN RECOVERY MODE PLEASE RESTORE IT , close itunes open greenpois0n and press jailbreak then relax and let it do its work u will see a verbose screen ,that means it is jailbreaking

Any more help email me at
