Hai, Everything works perfect! accept the link to jailbreak 1.1.2 it gives an error '404 not found' maybe because it's old.. I don't know.. Is there any other way to jailbreak 1.1.2?! Thanks!

I downgraded to 1.1.1 using a different way, because I already had 1.1.3. When trying to upgrade to 1.1.2, itunes stops with error 1602 during preparation of the iPod, leaving it in restore mode. Then I have to either restore the 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 or use iBrickr. Restoring to 1.1.2 works, but the jailbreak files tell me the iPod wasn't oktoprepped in 1.1.1, so the jailbreak also fails. I guess the problem is iTunes, because it does not upgrade the 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. Should we be using a certain iTunes version? If so, you should tell it in the guide. I have 7.6.

This is absolutely awesome. I tried to unlock my sister's touch and did it in victory :D. Once again, iclarified staff, your work is amazing. I've always been a fan of this site and forever will. Can't find a better guide anywhere else. 1 more thing, i hope you guys the iclarified staff aware that the 1.1.3 ipod touch firmware jailbreak has been released earlier than it was planned. As i don't trust any other website (their explanation is horrible), i hope you guys will put up the OTB 1.1.3 jailbreak guide using window soon (so i can jailbreak my own OTB 1.1.3 touch :D ) Thank you for your hard work.
