    Hello-

    I have been lurking here for awhile, reading everything I can, and I have tried jailbreaking my 1st generation iPod Touch for awhile, and I am not having any luck at all.

    • Operating System: Windows XP (Home Edition) w/ Service Pack 2
    • Computer Has USB 2 ports
    • iPod Touch: 1st Generation, 8GB, 2.1 firmware
    • Application: QUICKPWN 2.1-1 (downloaded from iDev site *******)
    • Firmware: iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw
    • .NET Framework: 3.5
    • Compatibility Mode for QUICKPWN: set to Windows 2000
    • Services Running: Fast User Switching, Remote Procedure Calls (both), Terminal

    I have also tried using different USB ports on my computer, and always get the same results. I have also tried this on 3 different computers, with pretty much the same specs, all with no luck.

    Here is a video of me using QUICKPWN to attempt to jailbreak my iPod Touch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV4RLHkeU0s
    Sorry about the video quality, but you should get the idea - it doesn't have to be hi-res in this case.

    Any help or ideas are appreciated!

    after you restore, restart your PC first,

    and then close the processes including itunes,ipod,apple. (at the task manager)

    download the quickpwn for 2.1 here.

    there you go, it will work,

    that's morphey's version. try it, it worked for me. perfectly.

    Thank you! That was the key!

    I am afraid I was a victim of reading too much, and assuming that the "run in windows 2000 compatibility" mode was a necessity.

    I unchecked that, made sure that all of the services indicated were started, and was able to finally successfully jailbreak my iPod touch!
