Hello, Im new to jailbreaking, and decided to give it a try. After restoring my trusty 1st-gen Ipod Touch to factory standars I booted up redsn0w 0.9.10b5 and started 'jailbreaking'. I was prompted to put my device into DFU mode, and when I followed the instructions, A message appeared telling me to specify the IPSW for the currently installed firmware.

Help a noob out please?

Super easy: Open Safari on the iPod, and go to jailbreakme.com/star

You don't need a computer to do this.
