I've been doing this for 3 hrs now, but still it's stuck in the "waiting for reboot" part. I tried to unplug and plug my iPod again and again but it still didn't work. What will I do now?!

I've unplugged my iPod touch from the computer because the jailbreak process appears to get stuck during a "waiting for reboot stage". I've plugged my itouch back, but now it isn't working.

HELP** umm, my ipod screen has "Downloading Jailbreak Data..." with a downloading icon. Its been like that for 10minutes. What do I do?? Is this normal that it takes this long to download the jailbreak data.
chungey1 - January 7, 2010 at 3:46pm
I could not get this jailbreak to work with my ipod touch. It seemed like a really nice jail break, real short but did not work. If someone knows how to make this work please add comment for future users and if you could also sent me an email that would be great.

Yea so I tried to use this program, and it seems to be gettig stuck on the restart part... I've unpluged my Ipod 2 or 3 times, moved the usb port around and still getting no reboot action... I really had High hopes for this program... but it seems to be a no go :(
iknowlittle - November 24, 2009 at 11:10pm
please help. i have done this three time and every time it gets suck on the downloading jailbraking data... screen and it stays there for ten minutes and then it flashes white and goes to recovery mode. please help meeeeee
Matt - November 24, 2009 at 4:20am
im at the part where it has the itunes logo and under it is the usb plug. it said connect to itunes. Im connected to my macbook, and it says i have to restore my ipod on itunes. PLEASE help. also will this work for itouch 2G OS 3.0 cause thats what i have
Jeff - November 24, 2009 at 11:10am
Matt, Unfortunately, I believe you have to downgrade to an earlier OS. I had the same problem. I upgraded to 3.0 thinking it was going to be sweet only to find out I could not jailbreak. I ended up going back to 2.2.1 and this client worked like a CHARM! If you can somehow downgrade to 2.2.1 (5H11a), then you should have no problem. Last time I checked they were having some problems with jailbreaking the 3.0 OS, but I could be wrong by now. Hope this helps.
iknowlittle - November 24, 2009 at 11:13pm
how can i downgrade?

pmm - September 16, 2009 at 5:04pm

Jaspir - September 10, 2009 at 9:07pm

Jeff - September 24, 2009 at 12:30am
Dude, you have to load installous on to your ipod to do that.
annap - September 9, 2009 at 7:54pm

Vanessa - September 6, 2009 at 3:05pm

optimus - September 5, 2009 at 9:02pm

Ryan - September 5, 2009 at 6:10pm
Hello, anyone who had positive results with this. How long did it take for the jail break to work (while it's showing the apple after rebooting). I don't know whether I should try again, or see what happens if I wait. Please help!
bob - October 4, 2009 at 10:38pm
the same thing happened to me, what am i supposed to do?
coolie - August 22, 2009 at 9:53pm
Thank you!! Worked perfectly!! Just be patient ppl...and make sure you're doing DFU mode correctly!
sadface - July 16, 2009 at 5:48pm
No, everyone, I do not reccomend this. It does work, but before it did it crashed my iTouch completely and I was so scared. That would be 300 dollars down the drain. When you restore it, it takes a couple hours, and its definately NOT supposed to take that long. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE wait for QuickPwn to come out with a software to put on Mac. The DevTeam is working on it, so please dont take this risk.
hilliardfc20 - July 13, 2009 at 3:14pm
Ive got the same problem as TSquar3d im done with evrything and thn poof it tells me to connect it to itunes and wen i do it jst goes bak to the factory settings. HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! jst repli the answer to me or send it with my email address
TSquar3d - July 3, 2009 at 7:57pm
It works all up until the install is finished, then it tells me to connect to itunes. When I connect to itunes it reboots it to factory state. What am I doing wrong?
scott - July 1, 2009 at 7:31pm
this was the fastest easiest way to jailbreak my ipod. it was so easy i reccomend to all.
scott - June 27, 2009 at 11:11pm
my ipod is stuck at the apple and keeps making the rebout sounds. any help would be awsome
matb - June 26, 2009 at 10:50pm
it worked. it's the only one that's worked for me. but what can Cydia do? It can't get me free apps in the app store. it has a select few of apps and themes. it's not great. can i switch what program is downloaded in so i can have installer and those custom build .ipsw like in pwnageTool?
iSimon - June 15, 2009 at 6:12pm
Seriously this quickpwner is SOOO much faster than the 20 steps one. i've tried following all the steps and got stuck twice, but finally i,ve tried this quick one and took me like 5 min instead of an hour and a half!
slimnugget15 - June 11, 2009 at 4:05pm
@ iClarified or to anyone who can answer this. If I jailbreak my iPod, will I still be able to use it with iTunes for my music and everything else? I basically just want Cydia (does Installer exist anymore) to download some apps but thats about the extent of what I want to do. Also, after jailbreaking, if I dont like it or something happens, can I restore my iPod back to the factory settings and be safe and good to go? never done this before and I know very little. Thanks
SnaKe - September 4, 2009 at 12:35am
Yes, you can restore your factory settings if you don't like Cydia (which I guaruntee you will if you find the right apps ;]). You can still use iTunes and everything, and Installer is called Installous now (look it up on youtube).
jh - June 3, 2009 at 6:54pm
awesome,took 3 times but it finally worked.
nick - June 4, 2009 at 9:48pm
how long does it take once it is rebooting to come up with the springboard along with cydia?
Sean - June 6, 2009 at 10:26am
what did you do differently then the instructions to make it work?
matt - June 1, 2009 at 9:32pm
Is this for 2.2.1 ipod touch 2G firmware?

sean McInally - May 30, 2009 at 11:57pm

albie - May 29, 2009 at 11:20pm
Anybody know if this is a tether jailbreak or not?
alex - May 23, 2009 at 5:54pm

slimnugget15@hotmail.com - June 11, 2009 at 9:48pm
I think you may have to have Leopard...do u have it? I have Tiger and it doesnt work either.... grrr makes me so mad.
slimnugget15 - June 12, 2009 at 12:03am

Jay - May 21, 2009 at 9:19pm
My ipod is stuck at the image of a harddrive with a green arrow pointing down at it saying downloading jailbreak data... HELP im stuck.
achille - May 19, 2009 at 10:36am
its easy! all you have to is make sure that you DFU right and you have to have THE FOLDER ON YOUR DESKTOP
ZachPlaysDrums - May 18, 2009 at 7:55am
After going through this process several times, I guess I'm just going to sit and wait. After I've gone through all the steps, my iPod will turn off and back on, then stay on the apple logo for a while. How long should I have to wait for the iPod to boot up? If none of this ends up working, how do I get my iPod back?
sean McInally
sean McInally - May 30, 2009 at 10:34am
i have the same problem as you do and i don't know what you have to do
eddie1884 - May 16, 2009 at 12:40am
i just about to write that the jailbreak did not work...but then....it WORKED...!!! I got the cyndia on the ipod now after second time trying to jail break it...you've got to give it some time...for those who ipod touch jail break did not work...i suggest you do it again...after your first try, don't disconnect your ipod, just close the terminal and click "pwn the ipod 2g icon again"...the terminal will come up and will try to do the jail break again...follow through the steps...and wait for 10-15 mins...it worked for me...it shoud for you...GOOD LUCK...

drew mcbride - May 13, 2009 at 11:44pm
worked perfectly in less than 5 minutes thank you worth the wait!!
JCB - May 10, 2009 at 12:35pm
I was able to get through the process. But all it does is displays the Apple Logo and then just keeps re-starting over and over and over again. I was not successfull :( I tried twice but not so much.
