These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPod Touch 5G on iOS 8.0 - 8.1 using Pangu for Windows.

If you aren't already at iOS 8.1 we suggest upgrading to the latest firmware using iTunes. You can find download links for iOS 8.1 here. We've also posted instructions on how to update the firmware of your iPod. Please note that you must update using iTunes rather than Software Update. If you used Software Update you should do a backup then restore to iOS 8.1 using iTunes.

Step One
Create an iClarified folder on your desktop and download the latest version of Pangu into the folder. If your download is a zip file then extract the archive into the same folder.
