Are you connected to the internet while running redsn0w? What redsn0w version? If you are on windows, extract redsn0w.exe, right click, properties, caompatibility tab, run in winxpsp3 compatibility and tick run as admin, then try again. If you have the iPod Touch 4G ipsw, you can also select ipsw in extras before doing the jailbreak.

Try again with a different USB port and if possible a different USB cable.

Also make sure you're using the latest redsn0w version 0.9.9b7

Edited - Be nice in posts, no need to be rude, or inflammatory. Next time just ask the OP for more info

The point of my comment was that asking for more info from the type of person who thinks the color of their device matters in the slightest is an inherently futile act. If the OP thinks the color of their device has some bearing on how that device can be jailbroken, nothing in any of the answers here is going to be able to help them. You can't save everybody.

@Pembrook your first unedited answer was very confusing and uncalled for.

Hey, at least he knows it's an iPod Touch "4G" instead of a "5G" seeing as it is promoted as "newer" than the one introduced last year but in reality the same thing.

See thread title. Sadly, OP calls it an iTouch.

(03 Nov '11, 01:34) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

Don't a lot of people refer to an iPod touch as an itouch? i hear it a fair amount myself and dont see anything wrong with it?

LMAO, didn't see this post until just now, and I have to admit the original answer by @Pembrook rings true. :P
