I have now downloaded the ipod touch firmware 2.2.1 three times from three different sites, and I keep getting an error message from redsn0w saying "Unable to recognize specified IPSW."
I even tried to do it with QuickPWN, and I get this error message from all three versions of the firmware: "Firmware error string"
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

i'm not quite sure redsn0w works with 2.2.1 it was design for firmware 3.0 (i could be wrong) also, i've seen that error when you try loading a "custom firmware" and not the original firmware.There're never enough iPhone Mods
If anything I said helped you, Please press the Thanks! button

redsn0w is not designed for 2.2.1. In its current form it works only with firmware version 3.0.

Here is a guide on how to do it. It is kind of lengthy but I wouldn't know of a shorter version since I don't own an iPod Touch:

There are links for the necessary files in the tutorial at the beginning. They are the bold words.

LOL. Everyone check out Neo's post, it holds the answerI always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

Umm okay. Well when I jailbroke my sister's 2g ipod touch I remember that I just used 1 program that was a lot quicker than all of that. I can't remember the name though. Does anyone know any alternatives?
