Before we start, plz, no replies saying "That guide's already made" cuz this is a super simplified version. Because just looking at Quickfreedom may make them afraid to jailbreak. So here we go! What jailbreaking does: Jailbreaking basically allows installation of apps that are not Apple approved. That means that if you don't jailbreak, you can't install themes and stuff. You can get these apps and themes from Cydia. Cydia is like an installer. What you need: Pretty basic stuff: An iPod Touch 2G, iTunes, a cable, a computer with Windows, Internet to get the firmware. (or else how would you read this post?) If you have already installed QuickFreedom, skip to number 3 1.) Download Quickfreedom from http://quickfreedom.com 2.) Install and Start (for Vista users, run as administrator or it won't work) 3.) In the menu, click jailbreak 4.) Find the 2.2.1 firmware, or download it from the menu. The firmware is like the OS the iPod runs on. Quickfreedom turns this into a custom version that's jailbroken. 5.) Install the LibUSB drivers. Basically these are drivers Quickfreedom needs to jailbreak the iPod. (make sure your iPod is plugged in on this step), should be straight forward. (FOR 64 BIT USERS GO TO THE BOTTOM AND DO THE STEPS THAT SAY FOR 64 BIT USERS ONLY!!!! Or else fear the consequences...) 6.) Press the Next button, check the stuff you want, then create custom firmware 7.) Press the Next button, use the DFU instructions. This is a mode you have to be in to jailbreak. (turn off, plug in, then hold the home and sleep button for 10 seconds, there will be a timer, then let go of the power but still hold home for about 30 seconds or until iTunes finds an iPod in recovery mode, if you did it correctly, you should be in DFU MODE. You'll know if your screen is black) 8.) Start pre jailbreak, your screen should turn white. Wait patiently. 9.) Open iTunes and restore your iPod with the Custom Firmwear 10.) w00t you jailbroke your iPod! FOR 64 BIT USERS ONLY OR YOUR COMPUTER WILL HAVE PROBLEMS - <----------------- You need to download a special version of LibUsb yourself or your computers will have problems, follow these steps: A YouTube guide is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21wFxw1kwSo You can find this in the README's, but everyone likes it in one place, no?
