    Are you willing to have windows installed in a virtual box?

    I think you can do it via wine.

    There is a link in the first section that allows you to jailbreak with a virtual machine running windows.
    I don't know if you can sync/restore on iTunes on wine.
    After you jailbreak using your virtual windows, you can set it up so that it syncs WIRELESS with your computer.
