    Ok, So I am on 3.1.2 and I am currently jailbroken with blackra1n. Is it safe for me to use redsn0w? Basically, blackra1n won't work on XP for me as I have jailbroken on Vista, but I'm sure redsn0w will work on XP. So is it safe for me to use?

    BTW I am on 3RD gen 8GB so it is tethered.

    iPod touch 3G can only be jailbroken by Blackra1n. It is not possible to use redsn0w on a 3G.

    EDIT:
    Ignore this post, I forgot that the Dev-Team updated redsn0w to work with the the iPod touch 3G.

    that's weird, since I used redsnow on my 3g touch, and it worked fine. It is tethered of course. but it worked.

    Every jailbreak for the 3G is a tethered jailbreak. It's a consequence of the new bootrom.

    Redsn0w's main advantage is it installs what you need upon jailbreak, and fails less often.

    yes. everytime you turn off your ipod. why? cause its a tethered jailbreak cause you have a 3rd Gen ipod touch. tethered means you have to boot with blackra1n each time you turn off your ipod.
