Perfectly normal under the circumstances. You're running iOS 4.3 or 4.3.1. GP requires 4.2.1.

Is this a different device than you had yesterday? It has to be; yesterday you had an MC model iPod Touch 2G. That won't run anything later than 4.2.1.

No. It's not the device, it's the iOS version.

is their any other way my ipod is still failing at the apples5l8920xarm7m do you want me to cancel it??

(31 Mar '11, 01:08) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image

It will do that until the sun explodes. If you want to wait until then, don't cancel it.

(31 Mar '11, 01:12) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

then what am i supposeed to do...

(31 Mar '11, 01:14) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image

Cancel it. Press home+power until you see the Apple logo, to reset your iPod. It will be as it was before. The only jailbreak is a tethered one.

(31 Mar '11, 01:18) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image

its a their a jailbreak that will work on 4.3.1??

(31 Mar '11, 01:22) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image
(31 Mar '11, 01:23) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

and this will work on the 4.3.1...and is it the same thing as GP but just different name??

(31 Mar '11, 01:26) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image

Completely different from GP. You build custom firmware with it, and restore to it with iTunes. Every time you boot you have to connect it to a computer and run a program, that's what tethered means.

i dont want their anything that is just like GP or similer

(31 Mar '11, 01:39) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image

No. It's tethered or wait, those are your options.

(31 Mar '11, 01:42) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

wait for what??

(31 Mar '11, 01:43) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image

A new jailbreak. Before you ask, nobody knows when. Shouldn't be long though.

(31 Mar '11, 01:46) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

(31 Mar '11, 01:49) snake man snake%20man's gravatar image
