I have tried everything I can think of to jailbreak my 8GB 1g iPod Touch, and so far nothing has worked, and I have been trying for awhile. I have used Quickpwn, following all of the suggestions here, and downloaded the latest version of Quickpwn form the dev site, and also the 2.1 firmware from apple, and it keeps hanging up on the "Preparing your device..." screen, and I have restored my firmware about a dozen times in the process. I have tried it on 3 diff puters and the same thing happens each time. I also reluctantly tried ziphone - still no luck. Is 2.1 an especially hard firmware to crack? Should I try 2.0 or go back to an even earlier firmware? Are they easier to jailbreak? If I do, what will I be missing out on? Is it easier to jailbreak using OS X on an apple puter? Can I upgrade the firmware once it is broken?
