Help With a Previously Jailbroken Ipod
Posted 26 March 2012 - 06:10 AM
ok this might be a long read but i really need somebody's help.
i have an ipod touch 3rd-gen (IOS 4.1) that i have had for about a year now. i jailbroke it nearly as soon as i got it. the problem is that about a week ago i noticed that the album art was not right. i tried everything i could think of to try to fix it. but what i decided to do was to restore the unit. so i downloaded the official apple 4.1 package and used the shift button to use itunes to restore the ipod. however, the problem started occurring now that i cant re-jailbreak the unit. neither limera1n nor green poison will jailbreak this unit (what i mean is that they wont show the icon that is supposed to allow the installation of cydia). i thought maybe the jailbreak needs to be uninstalled before any kind of re-installation, but the only information i can find on jailbreak uninstallation is to use the restore function (which i already have). so at this point i guess i need help (or a step by stem walkthrough would be best) with how i get cydia back onto this device. ANY HELP WITH THIS PROBLEM IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

If I were you I'd go to the latest version of iOS and use redsn0w. You need to run it as administrator and depending on the version, xp service pack 3 compatibility mode

how do i re-jaibreak?
download redsn0w, point it to your 4.1 ipsw, follow the directions on screen.

cygerhog: im a level 12 google master, been there tried that. if i had found an answer on google i would not have had to come here and beg for help.
kealii16: i want to stay on 4.1, otherwise i wouldnt be here asking how to do that...
as for sn0breeze...i tried it and it said that the custom JB IOS was on my desktop, so i used the "shift+restore" to fix it, but now i keep getting an error from itunes and the restore never completes. any other suggestions...........

could it be that the ipod is already jailbroken, just that there is some kind of error on it that keeps the icons from being seen, and would there be a way around said error??
