  • 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.

      just updated iphone to 1.1.1. then did the touchfree using xp. worked just fine. it looked like touchfree hung up after pressing the "continue to step 2" button. I just let it sit there for a while and it eventually started a progress bar and sucseffully installed the installer app and summerboard. god bless 13 year old genius'.

      Ive been trying for a while now but i cant get past step 2 "Reading ipod flash image". I am using an iphone and am on windows. I get the green status bar to fill up but then it seems to start over, no failure messages though. Does anyone know exactly how long this should take? Ive read about 5-10 minutes but i cant tell if something is going wrong since the status bar fills up and then starts over again.

      I've tried the first method to the same errors. This method works great if you have access to a Windows box.

      there is one major problem with this app, IT HAS SUMMERBOARD....alpha....and it crashes....alot....it messes up this whole touch free. There is no way to uninstall summerboard unless you have a backup 1.1.1 plist file(that hasnt been edited by Summerboard). You can manually delete the files, but your plist will be messed up.
