I am running XP as a virtual machine on Ubuntu. I can sync and restore my iPod Touch 4G using the virtual machine, but I can't jailbreak it; because after I put the device on DFU mode, Windows does not recognize it.
It cannot find the driver – or the driver that is installed is not correct, because in the device manager I see an exclamation mark next to the device.
I searched for the problem, and apparently the only solution is to remove and reinstall iTunes and all other Apple software. So, I did that. It can still sync and restore, but when the device is in DFU mode, it is still not recognized. Since it is not recognized in DFU mode, I can't start the jailbreaking operation. Any suggestions?
