How to Jailbreak Your iPod touch with ZiPhone GUI (Windows)

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 Installer.app 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 ZiPhone.zip 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.

Step Six
The program will now load zibri.dat. Then it will search for the iPod touch. Once found it will tell you to wait for 45 seconds.

NOTE*: After completion its probably a good idea to install BSD Subsystem first then OpenSSH from Installer.app

I tried this on both a PC and a Mac, and couldn't get it to work. On the PC, it would run, and I could see the script running on the iPod touch (firmware 1.1.3), but then it got to a point where it looked like the iPod was rebooting, and then nothing. The screen went blank, and ZiPhone appeared to have stopped, but it did not say that it had completed. Also, the iPod was still in Recovery mode, and so I had to recover it using iTunes. I tried it multiple times on two different PC's with the same result. I tried to restore it first, and then run it fresh, but the same thing happened. On the Mac, it wouldn't run at all, but after some research I found out it was because the Mac that I have is running Tiger. Any thoughts?
