I have a brand new touch that I want to jailbreak. I understand that blackra1n will only work on those which were made before week 40, ie the serial number has 4th and 5th digits of 39 or less. Jailbreaking with blackra1n on models with serials 40 or above (mine is 48) will require the unit to be tethered and blackra1n run every time it is turned on. This is simply not worth the hassle! So firstly, does anyone know if the voltage software will jailbreak without the tethering issue, and secondly, if id does can someone point me in the direction of a working download link? Cheers, F1 larscandrum@gmail.com

The voltage download doesn\'t work and I can\'t find any working alternatives. Can someone who has it, and the custom firmware post a working download link, or if not send me them? I\'d be extremely grateful.

I\'m having a lot of trouble installing the libUSB. Done everything it told me to do and even tried it the Vista way. (I\'m windows 7). Also, when i get to \"Make IPSW\" I click it, it does the black window thing then closes 3 seconds later. I try to click next step but it says \"Custom IPSW not found\" any help? D:
