    Default [ HOW TO ] Jailbreak iPod Touch with redsn0w | 1G/2G | OS X


    This guide shows you how to jailbreak your iPod Touch (1G or 2G) using the DevTeam's redsn0w tool.

    First you'll need to do two things:
    1. Backup and Restore your iPod Touch. Just connect to iTunes and sync. If you have any Cydia apps from a previous firmware, they will be deleted when we restore. Here's a few places you may want to back up manually if you're worried about it... I didn't.

      /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook - Contacts
      /var/mobile/Library/Calendar - Calendar
      /var/mobile/Library/Notes - Notes
      /var/mobile/Library/Safari - Bookmarks, Cookies
      /var/mobile/Library/SMS - Text Messages.
    2. Download redsn0w.

      redsn0w 0.7 for Mac Megaupload Rapidshare
    Alright, open redsn0w now that you've downloaded it. You'll be greeted with the welcome screen, and asked to browse for your 3.0 .ipsw file. You should have already restored to it, so if you don't have it on your desktop (read: you downloaded it through iTunes), it will most likely be located at Macintosh HD/Users/(your name) Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw in your computer.



    Browse to it and find it, and redsn0w should sit a sec saying processing, then tell you the IPSW has been successfully identified. Click Next.



    redsn0w will run through a flurry of info in a popup window.





    Next you'll be asked if you want to install Cydia. You do. Click Next.



    K, this bit is a LITTLE tricky. You'll see the screen with instructions on entering DFU mode - only thing to be aware of is you should have your iPod Touch IN HAND when you press Next (after following the instructions to turn it off while connected), with your fingers ready to press Power and Home at same time - the instructions come fast, and are on a precise time limit. I had to do it twice.



    Follow the instructions in holding down the power button and various steps.



    Now you'll see the app telling you more info as it goes through its steps. During this time your iPod Touch will have some images on it as well.







    Assuming all went well, that's it! Click Finish, and your iPod Touch will sit doing some more stuff about 2 minutes, then you're all good!




    Note: If your iPod Touch won't start back up (just goes to Apple loading screen and stays), its probably because you didn't Restore to a fresh 3.0 BEFORE running this tool.

    I see a Windows link download version, so can I assume that the process would be the same and I can follow this guide even though its for OS X?

    EDIT: To Windows users, I can confirm that this guide works on Windows (iPod Touch 2G user).

    Good guide, my daughter's just bought a Touch so I bought FW3.0 for her and tried following it. Only problem was when I tried finding the FW and cut and pasted
    iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Resotre.ipsw
    into the search box - you might like to correct the typo. Other than that, worked flawlessly. Thanks.

    Thanks - took me ages to find out why I couldn't find the file. When you read something you read what you know it is rather than what's actually there!

    i did all these steps exactly, except that i had one problem after its jailbroken. also mine was a LIL BIT DIFFERENT. so at the 2nd step where it asked if i wanted cydia and it was checked, it also asked for icy which i also checked. so i went on thru the steps and when i was finished safari, or wifi has been unable to work AT ALL. so i still would like to know wat my problem is. could it be my timing when putting it in DFU mode was off? any advice or reasons why this may be happening?

    Don't install both! just cydia. Many people have reported problems with both.
    Is WiFi turned on under Settings->General->Network?

    I downloaded version 3.0 for my 2g ipod touch. This process works until it says Patching kernel. then it just gives me an error message. I really need help.

    Had you paid for and restored to FW3.0 first?
