OK try this:

Make sure you have a good, non-proxied internet connection on the computer you're running GP on.

Make sure you have the latest iTunes installed.

Delete the 2 payload files from the previous GP attempt. They'll be in the folder GP is in, named iBSS.nXXap & kernelcache.release.nXX.

On a Mac they will be in

Run GP again.

That's probably the "device disconnected" sound, I wouldn't worry about it. Are you getting into dfu?

Yes it goes into DFU but just says try again. I know this because to turn the ipod back on i have to hold sleep+home.. so it has to be in some mode..
