Re: i need help jailbreaking my ipod

Did you see this one thread Autumn iPhone and iPod Touch Themes after I saw that I wanted to jailbreak my son's ipod but he might kill me if I do. It is really cool! Which ipod do you have - not sure if it makes any differance? Do ipods call home like iphones do???

Re: i need help jailbreaking my ipod

Blackra1n is your best bet. Make sure you know which generation of Touch you have and read up whether or not you can expect problems. The newest touch is a tethered jailbreak. So if it's battery dies or it reboots you have to connect to a computer and re-run Blackra1n.

Yes you can still sync with iTunes and buy apps from the App store.

When you run Blackra1n after jailbreaking it lets you install Cydia, Rock or Icy. Only install Cydia. Installing more than one can cause problems.

Right now I'm tethering to my iPhone to get online and post this. Jailbreaking is a lot of fun.

Re: i need help jailbreaking my ipod

Hey izzle - well I did find out for sure that I have one of the ipods that requires tethering Since its my son's and he turns it off at school I'm not going to jailbreak his YET. He wants to jailbreak it but we discussed it and decided that we will wait till they come out with a work around for not having to tether. I know they are working on it and they have one in Beta but I'll let them get the bugs out first before I do it. If you hear of them figuring it out let me know Smile

Will do. Right now I just have internet on my iPhone or when I tether so I'm not as up to date on things as I could be. I will return to full internet once I sell my house.
