mine gets stuck at step 10 is that normal?

i think you didnt restore 3.0 on itunes thats why redsnow does not accept your firmware to jailbreak

Can anyone give me a hand? I don't understand why iPod1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw doesn't get recognized by redsn0w I followed all the instructions and still doesn't work please let me know if anyone else has this problem.

Can I use redsn0w it with 3.1.3? I've already read a previous post with 3.1 problems and it seams that it's not possible. Can anyone be more accurate (like "no, it's not possible" or "Yes, it's possible"... :))) ) Thanks AJ

Is there a way to jailbreak Ipod Touch 3g 3.1 Thanks
zoltan - November 9, 2009 at 9:05am
can we do it with 3.1.2?
richie - October 25, 2009 at 4:33am
has anyone tried this with the new 3.1 firmware?
g - November 22, 2009 at 9:20am
I tried 3.1 Since it is available, but no luck with redsn0w... iTunes restored properly from iPod1,1_3.1.1_7C145_Restore.ipsw, but then redsn0w says only "unable to recognize specified IPSW"... :( So i go for 3.0 now...

im having a problem with cydia. it will not load anymore. hit the icon and it acts like its gonna load but throws you right back to the spring board. anyone know why? it started doing that after i downloaded an app called "mewseek" so i was thinking can i just "re-jailbreak" with out reloading the 3.0 firmware. just reuse the redsnow program to rewrite the files or am i really gonna mess up the 2g itouch????????

No point jailbreaking now if you haven't already, 3.1 firmware comes out in 3 days

When do we get the jailbreak for 3.1.1?
Lol - September 3, 2009 at 7:24pm
Do NOT buy the firmware! Go here: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ choose 3.0 version i pod touch firmware.
fmrmx - September 2, 2009 at 8:39pm
Thank you for this tutorial, it works, very easy to jailbreak, just follow the steps, and no you dont have to buy the firmware in itunes, i got it from somewhere else and it still worked
t27 - August 24, 2009 at 1:05pm
Excellent I followed the instruction and it works in 2 to 3 minutes but make sure not to disconnect ur ipod till u see the "slide to unlock" screen. ALso Redsn0w 0.8 has ICY AND CYDIA redsn0w and iClarified rocks. THE best AND MOST simple tutrial for the iPodtouch 2g 3.0 JailBreak
brandan - August 23, 2009 at 2:01pm
while doing this jailbreak my ipod went white then black and now it wont turn bacvk on what do i do
you wait.
you wait. - September 3, 2009 at 7:23pm
You wait. Or if it doesnt work after 10 mins, unplug cable and reconnect.

You have to upgrade the firmware to 3.0 first before doing any jailbreak. It works smoothly now.
Nitish - August 16, 2009 at 7:40am
do i loose all my data after jailbreak ??? games ?? applications ??
Meke - August 19, 2009 at 3:59pm
you will loose everything
mikeyboy - August 14, 2009 at 6:00pm
i've got an ipod 2g with os 3.0 and jailbreaking with redsn0w 0.8 DIDN'T WORK! i used redn0w 0.7.2 instead and it worked perfectly the first time. fyi for any mac users out there!
zach - August 12, 2009 at 4:31pm
to jailbreak this do you absolutely have to buy the 3.0 software because at the apple store they updated it for me so what do i do?
el1jah - August 11, 2009 at 3:41pm
I can't find the ispw folder
zach - August 8, 2009 at 6:18pm

Does it work on ipod touch 2nd Gen 32 GB ?
Yurgen Tartour
Yurgen Tartour - August 13, 2009 at 1:16pm
It worked perfectly fine with me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH iClarified =)
Dee - July 23, 2009 at 8:50pm
Very nice (and clear) tut, but aaargh, somewhere it needs to mention that you're going to lose all your emails/notes/savegames/settings/etc... It doesn't say that *anywhere*, and I lost everything.
zach - August 8, 2009 at 6:17pm
it will delete it but before u jailbreak it u are supposto back it up and then when u jailbreak it u select on itunes to restor to your ipod settings before you jailbreak it! and if you follow these directions right it will work fine am i correct cause i am scares to try it and it possibly mess up my ipod touch 2g 16 gig
Mazlum - July 21, 2009 at 9:23pm
I was reading around in the comment fields and I noticed that everyone were asking questions. Not a single "worked fine!" or "thanks iClarified!". So I decided to tell you that I've jailbroken my iPod touch 1G and it worked fine. AND, I promised myself that if this shit works, I will be translating the guide for iClarified to swedish. So - thanks iClarified! It worked.
Berglind - July 21, 2009 at 8:30am
Thank you so much, it worked well and it was very easy :D
Adrien - July 19, 2009 at 4:41pm
Thnx a lot !! it works perfectly !!

If I Jailbreak my iPod, will all my music/apps/pics get erased?
ipod - July 5, 2009 at 10:10pm
can any one of you guys please tell me if i need to be connected to the internet to jailbreak? please help me
Tom - July 10, 2009 at 4:51am
If you just Jailbreak only that is no need for internet. You need to have iTunes 8.2 to turn on and for PC just hold down ( Shift ) key and click restore on iTunes. Add your 3.0 firmware. To unlock using Ultrasn0m you need to have WiFi in order to do the job.
DaF - July 5, 2009 at 2:40am
Thanks for this.Really work
CC - July 4, 2009 at 8:36pm

Can someone please post a link to the new iPod Touch 2G 3.0 firmware. The ones I've already tried seem to only be from torrent sites or .dmg extensions. I need the ipsw to run on windows. Thanks
