    What is your method of entering DFU? You may be doing it wrong. You can also try a program called iReb, that will help you enter DFU. You can download it from ih8snow.com

    Did you try using iReb?

    Also, here is the complete way to enter DFU mode. Step 1. Plug your device into the computer. Step 2. Turn your device off by holding the sleep/wake button and sliding to power off. Step 3. Hold the home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time for 10 seconds. Step 4. Release the power button and hold the home button for 30 seconds. Step 5. Congrats! You have entered DFU mode

    yes, thats the method on most of the web site

    I have a mb model, which using this method gets me in dfu, but this mc model just boots normally.

    I did follow another site that get the itouch to recovery mode, but greenpoison was not able to jb it. guess there is a difference b/w dfu and recovery.

    Anyone know how to jb with recovery mode, instead of dfu? thx

    Do you have an mc or an mb model? You did not make that very clear

    Another jailbreak method is limera1n. Download it from limera1n.com

    Limera1n should work...although greenpois0n should have also. Btw, what is your version of redsn0w?

    Sorry, the program is not called iReb. I'm working on finding a program that will get you into dfu automatically
