My ipod touch 2nd gen Mc model 4.2.1 firmware does not want to jailbreak at all. I follow all of the steps, hold power for 2 sec, then power and home together for 10 sec, let go of power while holding onto to home for 15 sec. The timer goes all the way through the 15 sec and says try again. Then I try it again same thing over and over. I have tried reinstalling itunes, disabling anti-virus and other process, etc. I have downloaded the Beta 2 and 4 tried both with no success. I am using the windows version on xp, running as admin, not sure on the compatibility view through. So I have no clue what to do, please can someone help me? Anyone? I just really want to jailbreak and I have been waiting before Christmas. Thanks, Jkg43!

I JB my 2G(mc)4.2.1 last night, had the same problem, just had to follow the timing exactly as the counter says. don't anticipate and as I did, dont get your buttons mixed up. if you have any problem with cydia, look at my post under "cydia not booting".

I have been following them to a tee. It is just not working. What jailbreak did you use like beta ? and where from? Also I need to get detailed full instructions to this. I have jailbroke previous firmwares and this is the only problem I have had. Thanks!

So you used the one from greenpois0n.com? My problem happens like this. Once I click begin, the timer goes down 3 sec then it says hold the power button for 2 sec, I do that. Then it switches to hold home, I continue to hold both, the apple logo pops up for about 3-5 secs and halfway through the 10 sec the screen goes black. Once the 10 sec is up I let go of the power button and wait 15 sec until at the end it says try again. What is going wrong? I just don't understand why it is not detecting the ipod is DFU mode. Any further help?

Yeah my ipod is off. When I start to plug in my ipod what do I do first? Shut off ipod first then connect? When I do that then when I plugin it makes the apple logo boot up. Or do I plugin then shut off then begin the dfu mode? I just need detailed steps to this, and to check to see if I am doing anything wrong. Thanks again!
