    is this possible to do on a 2nd gen. I want to play around with the unsigned code hack released by chronic dev but i don't want to loose all my stuff on my ipod because my computer with all my music power supply died.

    You dont need to downgrade to do it. I am running 2.2 and it works for me.

    8. Upload payload (command: /sendfile 0wnboot.bin)
    9. Type 'arm7_go'
    10. Type 'image list'

    The 2.1.1 ibss.dfu and iboot.img3 are found in the 2.1.1 ipsw. To get them you need to change iPod2,1_2.1.1_5F138_Restore.ipsw to iPod2,1_2.1.1_5F138_Restore.zip and extract. The files are found in the extracted folder.

    To get into true dfu mode your screen needs to be black not have the connect to itunes pic. If after step 3 your screen isnt white u need to try to get into dfu again till it does turn white.

    im pretty sure the answer is no since a tethered jailbreak isnt released but if you want a better answer id suggest making your own thread
