What kind of jailbreak is this root/mobile (I guess that's root/userland?) It seems there is a default user, sometimes that's root, sometimes that's mobile, which one is Greenpois0n use? How can I tell right off the bat? If I install lighttpd+php & run a whoami, is that a lighttpd user or the username I'm looking for?

if you have an 8 GB ipod it is 2G for sure. also be advised that this is the final ver. (4.2.1) for this ipod no more updates. i want to know as well will it support this model because redsn0w for some reason doesn't support this device and this device is always forgotten. please make some effort in making it support it. this will be the last of it.

For what it's worth: 1. Read the documentation 2. Always make a backup 3. Relax; dont' do this or any other such things in a hurry 4. Your mileage may vary 5. Re-read and repeat. Glad to see another option out there; I upgraded my iPT3G to 4.1 on Thursday PM right after the Limera1n jailbreak came came out; did my backups with TInyUmbrella, made sure my blobs were where they were supposed to be and then proceeded to install and run Limera1n. It took about 5 tries to get it right, but it did work. Patience is a definite virtue when it comes to jailbreaking... Congratulations to the Greenpois0n crew; keep up the good work and here's hoping I don't need it, as the Limera1n worked just fine.

I have an iPT 3G and when I tried using this it failed at the verbose stage. It said that it couldn't find a file and so it actually told me "giving up" lol When I tried to restart it, it got stuck at the apple logo too so I had to just restore it through iTunes. I lost everything but its better than it not working at all.

Does it show up in iTunes? Can you do a restore there? if not, try putting it in DFU mode, then try using iTunes to restore it
