    Default redsn0w cant reconize my ipsw file for iTouch 2G
    When I load the OS 4 firmware for iTouch 2G into redsn0w, it says that its unable to reconize it.

    The .ipsw file name is: iPod2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw
    I am using an iTouch 2G with OS firmware 4.0 and iTunes 9.1.2.5

    Youre probably using the wrong version of Redsn0w. Make sure it is v0.9.5b5-5

    I cant find a download for that anywhere... any chance you can post one here?

    BTW if you need more info about my iTouch,

    Version: 4.0 (8A293)
    Model: PC086LL
    Serial Number: 8R948FT575J



    So i think its a non-MC model... right?

    Yes it's not a mc-model but Redsn0w always has the stupid problem of not reconize the fw

    Google it. It's not hard...if I can do it so can you.

    You know what, it's fine. I did it for you.

    It doesnt work. I follow all the instructions all the way to the reboot stage with this message:

    "Please wait while your device is being processed.
    Waiting for reboot"


    But the device doesnt reboot. So after 5 minutes I manualy rebot... the device reboots but redsn0w.exe doesnt do anything and the message above is still there.
    I am using an iPod Tocuh with firmware 4.0 (8A293)

    Are you sure you're on 4.0? If you try to jailbreak with a selected 4.0 ipsw and your phone is not on 4.0, it might do that. Try restoring your phone to 4.0 again before using redsn0w.

    Sorry but I ran out of solutions. I really think you're not doing something correctly. When you restore to 4.0, does it go thru correctly? Do you get any errors?

    Try going to 4.0 with a custom fw (use Sn0wbreeze if you don't have a mac to use PwnageTool). I think it's Sn0wbreeze v1.7 that you want for 4.0. Create the custom fw then shift+restore to it.

    Is this by any chance an MC model iPod?

    When I restore to a previous non-jb state using iTunes 9.1.2.5 I have no errors. However, when I use sn0wbreeze v1.7 to jb, I get a 1604 error from apple saying that it could not restore/jb uing the custom .ipsw from sn0wbreeze.
    Im sure I have a non MC model but just incase:

    Version: 4.0 (8A293)
    Model: PC086LL
    Serial Number: 8R948FT575J

    If you cant think of any solutions, contacting the iPhone Dev Team might help becuase I fear that this may be a bug. For instance, I followed all the instructions very closely when I used redsn0w v0.9.5b5-5. But I never got past that "waiting for restore" step PLUS my iPod Tocuh screen was blank... no icons, logos, or aynthing else. Just black.

    Tell me what happens after you restore.

    I'm thinking you should test your phone by going back down to 3.1.2.

    Downgrade to 3.1.2 and see if you can JB it with Redsn0w 0.9.3, or Spirit, or Blackra1n. See if any of those work.

    If not then perhaps something is wrong with your phone...

    You don't need SHSHs. Just download the 3.1.2 ipsw from the Downloads section here on MMi. Shift +restore to it.

    Well I looked though the downloads section but the firmwares that I need reqire me to "log in" becuase of something to do with apple.
    Do you happen to have any iPod Touch 2G 3.1.3 firmwares? I cant fin any.. even on google. The ones that I do manage to find dont work. I get "error code 20" or sometimes "error code 45" or "6042"

    What do you mean log in? Log in where? You should be able to download the ipsw just fine here in MMi Downloads section. Use firefox Opera or google Chrome to download so it isn't coming in as a .zip file. You want it in .ipsw format.

    Shift+restore to it and you should look for getting error 1011, 1013, 1015, or any variation of 101x

    Kick it out of recovery mode if that happens with TinyUmbrella

    Oh. I download the zip in IE and then extract it. When I shift + restore I get 1604 errors, not a variation of 101x.

    Are you downloading the ispw from here on MMi? You cant extract the .zip file it wont work. It has to be a .ipse file. Download it again with the either of the browsers I listed.

    Make sure they come in as .ipsw. Then shift+restore to it.

    Ok. My last post got cut off somehow, but I was saying that some of the .ipsw download links take me to a page where it says "Internet Explorer can't display this page. Reason: This page may require you to login". I am logged in to the forums though
