    Heya. First time Jailbreaker here. I've been using Quickfreedom to try and jailbreak my 2g Itouch. It all works dandy up to the point where the iPod is in DFU mode and I have to restore to the custom firmware on itunes. Holding shift and clicking restore just starts itunes connecting to some kind of update server, and I can't choose my own restore file.

    Does anyone know why this is?

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    Just get redsn0w beta 0.3. It fast and you don't have to restore.

    Did you do pre-jailbreak?
    Also use redsnow 0.3

    Hey thanks guys, redsnow worked brilliantly!

    So, now my itouch is broken free, can anyone recommend any good places to get apps and such, and maybe tutorials to show me how to load them on?

    Why bold and underline iPod touch if you don't even spell it right either?

    Just do what he said and check YouTube, or look at the different threads here.
