Thread: "Waiting for reboot"

  1. #1
    Default "Waiting for reboot"
    My ipod seems to always get stuck at "waiting for reboot" when I use redsn0w.

    I have an ipod touch 2g 3.1.3. Can anyone help me?

    Which version of redsn0w are you using? And does your ipt2g have an old or a new bootrom? You can tell the bootrom by seeing if your jailbreak is tethered or untethered. If it's untethered, you have an old bootrom and vice versa.

    Also, post the model number please.

    I tried redsn0w 0.9.2 and 0.9.4. And I believe it has an old bootrom.

    The model number is MB531LL.

    It's an old bootrom. You should just be using 0.9.4 - try doing a fresh restore and then try redsn0w again.

    Are you telling it to use 3.1.2 ipsw?

    I've tried a fresh restore and then tried redsn0w multiple times.

    Not sure why it doesn't work. You're using the correct version.

    Since it won't work, have you considered using blackra1n instead?

    Yes, and that also seems to get stuck on the "waiting for reboot" part.

    Btw what .ipsw should I be using? Perhaps I'm using the wrong one, if you could point me to the correct one..

    You can download official firmwares here: iPod, iPhone and iPad Firmware Download
    I believe the name of the downloaded file should be: iPod2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw

    If you do the blackra1n jailbreak, your device needs to be on 3.1.2 so you'd have to downgrade in order for that to work, not sure if you already did that before when you tried.

    I've tried that file firmware and redsn0w didn't recognize it?

    Are you sure? Usually when redsn0w doesn't recognize the firmware it's because it's 3.1.3

    Yes. I've tried multiple times and redsn0w just doesn't seem to recognize the firmware.
