    Default Need some clarification
    My nephews are getting iPod touches for Christmas and they want to jailbreak them so they can add 3rd party apps like the ones on my iPhone. So my questions are:

    1. Is there an automated/one click jailbreak yet?
    2. If the the automated jailbreak is the tiff exploit, is that firmware dependent?
    3. Does firmware even matter? I know with the iPhones, 1.1.2 OTB can't be unlocked yet. Is the same true for the iTouches?

    ...thanks!

    If the iTouches come with 1.1.2, I can simply downgrade to 1.1.1 and jailbreak right?

    Just wanted to say that unlocking refers to making the iPhone work with other carriers. So the iTouch is completely unrelated to the problem of 1.1.2 OTB not unlockable.

    So is there an updated/current guide to jailbreaking the iTouch? With the iPhone it's a little bit more involved so I don't want to miss any steps. OR is it really as simple as going to jailbreakme.com and following some instructions on screen?

    jailnreaking is the exact same on the ipod touch so jailbreakme.com works on both

    Got it. I didn't use jailbreakme.com to unlock my iPhone so I wanted to be sure. One last question....When I downgrade, assuming the touches come with 1.1.2, do I use the shift-click method in iTunes?

    Everyone who replied in this thread has been thanked!

    yes and when you are talking about jailbreaking dont use the word unlock because it means something completely different
