    I recently got an iPod Touch 1G 8GB (model #MA623LL) to use Android on, but I've been running into an odd problem. In order to install Android you need to jailbreak with a bootrom based jailbreak, but none of them seem to be working. Tried Blackra1n and redsnow; both say that they're working, but after reboot Cydia isn't there and there's no indication that they actually are jailbroken. Tried to DFU and install a custom sn0wbreeze firmware, but iTunes always sticks at "Preparing iPod" before giving a error ( so far I've got errors 2002, 1600, 1601 and 1602; gotta catch them all).

    I've tried using iREB to bypass the errors, but on 4.0.x-4.1 it sticks at waiting for iBSS, on iREB V3.1.2 iREB opens but when I click on iPod Touch 1G, it just stays there with no response.

    Userland based jailbreaks work fine (both spirit and Jailbreakme); but when I try to use the appropriate "2pwn" after I get a "subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 3" in cydia.

    Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Make sure you're using the correct version of redsn0w. You want the one at the bottom of this page Clicky clicky

    You are not supposed to install iOS 4 on an iPod touch 1G. The newest it can support is 3.1.3

    I know, I've been trying to jailbreak on 3.1.2; I had attempted to use iREB version 4.0.x-4.1 to bypass the iTunes errors since iREB V3.1.2 wasn't doing anything. iREB version 4.0.x-4.1 also does nothing, but is slightly more verbose about it.

    ^ He is right. If you have 4.0 or 4.1 installed it must not be a 1st gen.

    Guys did he say anywhere he was running 4.0?

    He is running 3.1.2.

    That is THREE-POINT-ONE-POINT-TWO!

    He said: "I've tried using iREB to bypass the errors, but on 4.0.x-4.1 it sticks at waiting for iBSS, on iREB V3.1.2 iREB opens but when I click on iPod Touch 1G, it just stays there with no response."

    That made me think he wanted to use iOS 4

    If you read carefully you can see that their talking about the version of iReb not the OS Version

    Update -- Other then the confusion here from iREB having the same version numbers as their corresponding iOS releases, I have gotten closer to jailbreaking. I tried working on a different computer and was able to use blackra1n there on 3.1.2. From there I was able install the custom Sn0wbreeze image; so looks like android is soon to follow.

    Not sure why the Win 7 x64 system would work for this, but the supposedly more compatible 32 bit XP computer wouldn't. But anyways, looks good from here.

    Thanks,
