How to fix some mysterious problems.

So I'm trying to jailbreak my iPod touch 4.3 with sn0wbreeze. I selected the IPSW and it said "extracting IPSW". Then "decrypting RootFS". Then it added Cydia and everything, and said "Rebuilding RootFS". Then a few other things and "Creating IPSW". Then a window pops up that says "Please note that this jailbreak is tethered. Use iBooty located on your desktop to boot your iDevice." Then another window pops up saying a problem caused the program to stop working, and then exits. This has happened multiple times, and I don't know what's wrong.

The newest sn0wbreeze 2.3b3 crashes right after creating the custom firmware. It's not a problem. Download iREB and click your device to put it in pwned dfu, shift-restore in iTunes to the sn0wbreeze custom firmware on your desktop, exit iTunes, run iReb again, choose the "Recovery mode loop fixer" tab. Then you should be able to run the new iBooty ftom your desktop. If Cydia opens then closes, reboot again. Works fine for me.
