Thread: Ipod black screen help needed..

  1. #1
    Default Ipod black screen help needed..
    Hey guys so I have an issue with my IPod touch 4G... I just bought it and I was trying to jailbreak it. Its running 4.3.5. I was trying to use green poison at first but couldnt get the sequence right so I tried redsnow.. It wouldn't detect it in dfu... So I unplugged the cord to try it putting it in dfu mode and the screen went black and hasn't been turning on since... Any suggestions?

    When you use redsn0w, what firmware are you pointing to when you select it?

    I didn't get that far... It was at the timing sequence screen(holding power and home button)... But I tried several times and it wouldn't detect it so the jailbreaking process could begin... So I disconnected the cable and tried doing the sequence with it disconnected, then the screen went black and hasn't turned on since nor is it being detected by iTunes....

    K. Try holding the home and power button together until you see the apple logo or recovery logo. If that doesn't work, try using Recboot to force your device into recovery mode.

    Try letting it sit by itself for a day or so to drain the battery
