  • Ipod Touch Easy Jailbreak
    Wanna set your iPod touch free and install tons of wacky apps on it but don't want to muck around with the Terminal? Now you don't have to with the debut of two new apps that will jailbreak your iPod Touch from the comfort of your Intel Mac or Windows machines (yes, there are iPod touch users running Windows).

    iJailBreak is an AppleScript app that takes all the fuss out of jailbreaking. At the moment it only works on Intel Macs, so our PPC friends are out of luck. Oh, and I should mention it was apparently written by two 13 year olds, which I normally wouldn't point out but it is featured prominently on their website.

    touchFree is a Windows app that'll do the same thing, only on Windows (shocking, I know).

    Both apps are free, though I imagine both will void your iPod touch's warranty, so run 'em at your own risk. I don't have an iPod touch myself so I haven't tried either. If you have had experiences with either sound off in the comments.

      Yeah , has anyone done this successfully on a mac yet? I'm dying to try it out but not confident enough in my abilities to fix my ipod if it goes haywire?

      excellent point, didnt think of that.
      You can run safari without activating/unlocking your phone through that emergency call work around (search the forum), but how would you connect to edge? Maybe wifi works without activating the phone.

      Or Your going to have to wait until they figure out how to use your USB to run Safari and direct it to a TIFF exploit sent through the USB.

      Or until they release a jailbreak with another method..

      looks like 1.0.2 is here to stay!

      i was not able to get iJailbreak working for my iphone, it seemed to get stuck at the jailbreak step

      I would not recommend testing this as my iphone will no longer sync after 2 restores

      ok so just to clear this up for everyone does that link work to jailbreak 1.1.1 iPhone on windows and if so do I need to have 1.1.1 already on my phone or do I keep the older version that install?

      i can't get past level 2? (Reading ipod flash image) anyone has any ideas?
      i looked in the folder where touchFree is installed and file "rdisk0s1" keeps changing from 0 to up to 260Mb every once in a while?

      The iJailbreak does not even unzip properly... it's corrupt. That's why the program doesn't work.

      That's not Summerboard doing that....... it's the new 1.1.1 Springboard. The real test is.... can you see a background behind the Springboard with Summerboard installed? Do any of the SMB Prefs work?

      I wonder if he can jailbreak iphones too!?
      Tinman over on everythingiphone.com has also confirmed that the touchFree program works on the iPhone for 1.1.1. Using Windows you have to have the .NET framework 2.0 installed before doing this. You can easily find his thread with instructions in the iPhone Modifications forum. Hope that helps.
