Umm hold the top button and the old button at the same time then when it turns off let go of the top button and keep holding the home button till it says connect to iTunes. if that doesn't work try that while connected to you computer dock.good luck

Don't give up on jailbreaking just because you hit the wrong button! ZiPhone works great when used correctly.

Also, when restoring, if you restore from a backup instead of restoring as a new device, you will likely run into troubles down the line.

thnx for the advice but i done all this and always get an error saying fail to install host not found, then i tried sm things of refreshing and deleting and adding sources but still says the same and cant refresh, do you need wifi on to install things, cos it always tells me to connect to wifi but it wont recognize any of my networks. thnx

have you gone into your settings and checked whether your wifi is set up properly?

and yeah you need wifi to install stuff. like psylichon said, don't give up, your best bet is probably ziPhone, its simple in every single way, just make sure you read the trouble-shooting guides before hand, and when you do something just take your time!

i was exactly like yoursefl my first time, a bit hesitant. just go for it!

I agree. My first time to ever jailbreak my phone took me two days to get it right. Turns out I was just pushing the wrong button so to speak. Good luck in the future!

Ok, I did the same thing only a little different. I went on ZiPhone and tried to jailbreak my touch. After about an hour I stopped the process to try it again. Unfortunately it got stuck on the same screen as Wally, but in addition now iTunes will not identify my touch. I've deleted iTunes and redownloaded it to no avial, also the restore sequence doesn't work where I hold down both buttons until it turns off and then release the top button while holding the home button. It doesn't do anything. Help.
