    ok, new stuff ive heard...

    first off, is it true the dev team is only 8 bytes away from making a non-tethered release for 2g 2.2.1 jailbreaks?

    second off, is it possible to downgrade my 2g ipod touch from v2.2.1 to a lower version, like 2.2? (if so, is 2.2 tethered still?)

    aaaaand since i own vista 64-bit, is it possible to jailbreak my ipod through VirtualBox running XP?


    and des this look like itd work...?

    For the First Question Yes they are.
    For Second Question correct me if I'm wrong guys but if you have jailbroken and you downgrade it will erase the jailbreak.
    For last question im not sure sorry mate.

    I guess we all have that same problem with using Quickpwn 22-1. Not being able to restore or jailbreak your 2g Iphone. We all have a newer verison firmware that will not let you go forward.

    I found the answer... for down grading to a v2.2. This is the same information for the Iphone 2g.

    Here is how you can downgrade from firmware 2.2.1 to 2.2:

    * Connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC and select your iPhone from the list of devices in iTunes. If things had gone horribly wrong while hacking your iPhone and iTunes does not detect your iPhone then you will need to put it in DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) mode.

    o You can follow these steps to put your iPhone in DFU mode (this is required only if iTunes does not recognize your iPhone):
    + Connect your iPhone to your computer.
    + Turn iPhone off.
    + Hold power and home together for 10 seconds (exactly).
    + Release power but keep holding home until the computers beeps (observed on a PC) as a USB device is recognized.
    + A few seconds later iTunes should detect your iPhone.

    * In the Summary Tab, Hold down Option and press the “Restore” button. If you are using Windows hold down Shift and press the Restore button. (This is an important step as just pressing the “Restore” button will result in restoring your iPhone with the latest firmware which is firmware 2.2 currently, by holding down Option in case of Mac or Shift in case of Windows, allows you choose the firmware file that you want to downgrade to.)

    After restoring download QuickPWN from http://www.quickpwn.com/downloads and use it to jailbreak your firmware 2.2.

    send me a email at xpozphotography@hotmail.com to let me know. I just did it to my Iphone.
