How to fix some mysterious problems.

I am trying to Jailbreak my 32g 4th Gen IPOD Touch. I downloaded gp rc 5_rcb3 and ran the app. Ater my touch started booting threw its scripts in stoped after the AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib was successful and then stated: AppleS5L8920XIOPSDIOIopManager ::init:(): Fail to get AppleS5L8920XARM7M

I got rid of RC 5 and rebooted my ipod and then tried rc 6final and had the same results...

any one know whats up???

Did you update to 4.3 in iTunes? Sounds like it. If you did, I hope you saved your 4.2.1 shsh's because if not, you're stuck on 4.3.

My Itunes did update my Touch to 4.3... shit!! ooh well i should have my 4.2.1 shsh auto-saved to my time machine. Any leaks for a 4.3 JB that you trust spockers??

Spockers, how about if i restore to 4.2.1, what should i try if i receive the AppleS5L fail message again?? I shouldn't tho, rite. with 4.2.1 and gp rc 5_3 or rc 6final should complete the jailbreak coding with out error, correct. Also, I am running OS X 10.6.6 and both rc 5_rcb3 and rc 6final apps.. as far as i read any how.

Time Machine doesn't save your blobs, unless you had them on your hard drive. Did you jailbreak or run TinyUmbrella at any point before last Friday? If not, you're stuck on 4.3. I'm running 4.3 on my touch 4g, jailbroken with sn0wbreeze 2.3 beta. You could use that, but one major issue: When the device's lock timer expires, neither home nor power will wake it, I have to plug it into USB and it instantly comes on. It may just be some tweak I've installed, dunno, need to test it some more.

I have not jailbrojen it as of yet.. I have only attempted to use the green poison sources and never completed the codes, which led me to posting on this forum. Hmmm so I am stuck on 4.3, well this was a good learning experience for sure.. so I might try the sn0wbreeze 2.3 if its a trusted break, and i trust your reputation so I'll give it a try, and thank you for the heads up on the power management...
