    Hi all


    I recently tried to jailbreak my ipod touch. The iPod touch is a second generation iPod touch running the 2.2.1 firmware. I ran Quick-Freedom and it worked just fine until i got to the part where the iPod screen goes white. At this point the screen did NOT go white, but stayed solidly black meaning that the pre-jailbreak had no completed and therefore preventing me from continuing with the jailbreak. Can anyone tell me a solution to this problem, ive looked on Google and everywhere else and i cannot find a solution to it.

    Is anyone here able to help?

    Thanks

    Put it in DFU and get redsn0w beta 0.3. Run that and your ipod will be jailbroken, without you losing any data.

    ok, but will it do the same as QuickFreedom


    My Freind has done a 2nd gen 16GB 2.2.1 with QuickFreedom and it works fine and not to seem narrow minded but i wanted something with a GUI because i cant be bothered and dont have time to do a command line jailbreak - hence my use of quickfreedom.

    Can someone help me get quick freedom working?


    Anyone got any ideas?

    PS: I have e-mailed the author of QuickFreedom and after a short exchange received no reply so im assuming it has him stumped too

    Redsn0w beta 0.3 run everything for you. All you have to do is double click the .exe and let it run. Less work than quickfreedom

    You think that QuickPwn is something it is not.
    It may open in the CMD prompt but it only output is given through it. You put your iPod in DFU and double click an .exe and it will do everything for you.

    Quickpwn/Redsn0w 0.3 is a simple DFU double click on the exe and it jailbreaks, like I and others have said.

    He's probably not doing DFU right.

    Simple - RESTORE any try again!

    EDIT: That is only if you do not want to listen to the advise given :|

    redsn0w .3 is AUTOMATED, u dont have to do anything except put the ipod into dfu mode, which u seem to be doing incorrectly, because all ipods are jailbreakable with dfu
