    I tried three times to install Jailbreak, but after awhile I get the itunes plugin on my screen tp plug my ipod to my PC. Then I have to restore my Ipod Touch all over again, and Jailbreak get's taken off. Am I doing something wrong, or am I not doing something not right or what? I might give it one more try if it could only stay on.

    The jailbreak is tethered, meaning whenever you turn your iPod off, restart your iPod or your iPod dies, you need to run blackra1n and 'make it ra1n' again to turn it back on. You won't lose any data though, so don't worry.

    This happened to me when i did it. Restore it now, then once its done close itunes. Go into the taskbar and close as many itunes related things as you can. Jailbreak through blackra1n, then when when itunes asks you to backup from old or set up as new, do set up as new and sync. Hope that helps.

    There is an option to prevent iTunes from opening/connecting when you connect the iTouch to your PC.

    Its under your 'devices' main page:

    ...make sure its not selected.



    also, another setting to check:

    ...make sure it has a check mark.
