Thank you so much! It works really well for me! I have some notes for you guys who reach the step 20 and receive the error 21 about itunes cannot restore (I myself had it). Here is what I did after that: - Restore the firmware iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw - Repeat from the step 18 Then it's gonna be fine. So I guess if you have your ipod up to date (with version greater that iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw) then first restore to that iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw before following the steps in this article. I'm not pretty sure but it may help. Thanks again for helpful article

I have Tiger (10.4.11), a 2nd Gen IPOD Touch and I have followed the guide without issues until step 18. My problem is that my IPOD will NOT go into DFU mode. I've tried numerous times and after the 10 second stage, it turns off and I continue holding the HOME button for another 8 seconds. The only thing that happens is that the IPOD disconnects and will not be recognized by my computer until I restart. Any ideas?!!?!!?!?!?!? I'm at wits' end!

I had the same problem. It was because my iPod Wasn't in 2.2.1 I have restart from step 18 and restore 2 times Now, the iPod is in 2.2.1, not Jailbreak, but it wotks and I don't want to do it again after this fear...
