Step by step instructions on how to jailbreak your iPod touch using ZiPhone GUI for Windows! No downgrading then upgrading! You can do the jailbreak from any firmware. It will jailbreak as well as install for you!

ZiPhone performs all these functions:
- Unlock iPhone (Will work on 4.6 BL or 3.9 BL)
- Jailbreak will work on any OS version.
- Activation for iPhone will work on any OS version, except for youtube on 1.0.X.
- iErase iPhone BL 3.9 Baseband

UPDATE*: It seems that the 2.0 Apple logo problem can be solved by running ZiPhone in verbose mode. I have updated the tutorial!

NOTE*: Before doing this tutorial I restored my iPod touch to 1.1.3 using iTunes.

Step One
Download ZiPhone from: here

Step Two
Double click on your desktop to extract the folder ZiPhone..

Step Four
You must put your iPod touch into recovery mode. To do this please hold down both the Sleep/Wake for 3 seconds. A power slider will appear. Slide it to the right to power down the iPod. Then keeping ONLY the Home button pressed, connect the iPod to the dock. Keep the home button pressed until you see the iTunes logo and cable on the screen.
