I found this post when searching in great frustration and a bit of desperation- I accidentally deleted an important voice memo yesterday from my ipod touch, didn't even realize I had touched the delete button until the little wheel was spinning and it was dissolving before my eyes I'm a long-time mac user, but new to the "touch" (couple months ago, have the 3.0 version (7A341), 32G). I recall some years ago hearing about doing things under "terminal" but I'm not well versed in this area, and don't know if it would even work for the touch. This post makes me hopeful, but it's also daunting- I'm afraid I'd screw up my ipod in trying to do it- so, my questions: 1) can this process described above work to retrieve voice memos? 3) what is the risk of my messing up and losing other stuff in this altered mode? Has anyone else actually had success recovering deleted files on the touch? (not just mp3s)- thanks so much for any insight you might share- seems like some knowledgeable people here.
FYI, I did all the steps above to jailbreak and it seems to have gone really smoothly- all complete, "finished!", etc. ipod touch started back up on it's own just fine. Sorry to be so dense here, but I don't realize how this has now helped me- is being "jailbroken" a permanent thing unless I do something like "go back to jail" (not that I know how to do that!)? Also, and most importantly, is being jailbroken a "state" that will allow me to go and find my lost voice memo from yesterday? That's what I really need to do. I don't really have any sense of what else being jailbroken allows me to do! Thanks, please give me a clue about retrieving lost voice memo. BTW, I found some thread about using something called "SFTP".... but it seemed to be for iphone not ipod touch. anyway, thanks. your instructions were really clear and it all seemed to work, I'm jailbroken, for whatever it's worth ;-)

Very nice tutorial!

Hey, I think I've been doing everything right. I restored my ipod to 3.0 firmware and I did exactly what the application said when I opened it and followed the instructions given here. However, my jailbreak still gets stuck on waiting for reboot. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Ok, so my friend told me it was because redsn0w couldn't jailbreak an ipod touch 2g with 3.0 firmware. So, I downloaded 2.2.1, but when I try and restore to it itunes gives me an error message saying it's not compatible. Can anyone help me with this?

Make sure you are using the correct ipsw., If you are sure you are then unplug the cable and plug it back in again and it should work.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

When you bought FW 3.0 it would have downloaded the ipsw to your computer. It is that ipsw you must use.
What do you meanThe cable, definitely isn't the issue
I told you to unplug the cable and plug it back in again if RedSn0w hangs - it's quite simple, if you do this RedSn0w will continue, if you don't, it won't. Your choice.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

nope everything was correct but i accidently used the version of redsn0w i tried downloading yesterday :S version 0.8
insted of version 0.7 now im just browsing around to find out how do download apps
09-07-2009, 01:17 AM #73
0.8 is the latest
What device do you have? What FW so you have on it? What is the full name of the ipsw you are using? What OS do you have on your computer? Did you tru unpluging the cable when it hung at 'waiting for reboot'?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

I too am having the same problem of being stuck at the reboot page and have tried all recomended remedies, all to no avail. Please help

Some more information might help.
What device? What's the name of the ipsw you are using? What OS is on your computer?

What's the full name of the ipsw file you're using and the device you're trying to JB?I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
