Hi. I use windows xp sp III. I installed redsn0w 0.9.9b9d. I do everything properly. But redsn0w dont recognize my ipod in dfu mode. Apple logo appears then ipod turns off. Then redsn0w says "no device found". Then usb icon appears and when i open it says "unknown device". To turn on my ipod i press the power button and then the home button. It turns on but apps that i downloaded doesnt work. Need your help

I think you have to find it listed as an unrecognized device, and remove it from the Device Manager, then the drivers will try to re-establish the device upon next USB connection.

The lates version came out last night and it's an untethered jailbreak. You shoul have 9.10b1

You'll need to boot tethered using the last version of Redsn0w that worked for you and install Corona from Cydia to untether
