    I downloaded the program Ziphone to jailbrake my itouch and when i got it to open i pressed on the button that said jailbrake ipod or something similar. on the program there where some little letters tat said if it takes more than 10 minutes restart. i wasn't sure if ten minutes passed by but i was anxious so i decided to hit restart when the computer turned back on if i try to open itunes or ziphone it shuts down and on my itouch screen numbers and letters appear. it says something but it scrolls so fast that i cant read it but then the same line keeps coming out saying

    BSD root : md0, major 2, minor 0


    over and over and over. plz help me!!

    Hi,

    I had a similar problem with my iphone when i was using ziphone. I, of course, freaked out when it took so long that I unplugged it too.

    Here's what I did......sync to iTunes and restore, use ziphone and re-jailbreak, and of course......watch the WHOLE process this time. No prob!!!

    Hope this helps!
    Don't be shy, it's ok to hit that THANKS button.

    I had this problem too, but this was with another Jailbreaking application. What you have to do is DFU restore your iPod. Plug it in to your computer, and wait for the text to show up. Then hold the power and home buttons until the screen turns off. When it turns off, let go of the sleep button and continue holding the home button for exactly 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, let go and wait for iTunes. If the screen is black, it worked; if the text shows up, try again.
    Option-click(Mac) or Shift-click(Windows) the restore button and find the .IPSW file that I have linked in the next sentence. Try restoring to 1.1.4(download here). If you have the same problem after the restore completes, with the text showing up, try restoring to 2.0. If neither of those work, post here telling us what happens.
    If they did work, you can jailbreak your iPod touch using these guides:
    Mac
    Windows.

    Hope that helped.

    black screen white text. itunes wont detect it. if i try to open ziphone it shuts down

    i did the thing you said holding the buttons for 10 seconds and then home for 10 more but it just turns off when i turn it back on the white text comes out again. and i tried running the one that says dfu mode but it also turns off

    having the same problem did u get the touch restore, if yes how did you get it to work
    thanks

    shut off your ipod, connect it to the computer then restart your ipod when it restarts make sure you are holding down the home button,
    the ipod resets itsself and is detected by itunes and resored and good to go all the best
