    a written or video tutorial?

    Because my friend is going to do it, my iPod touch is already jailbroken, and i wanna send her the proper instructions to do it.

    Shes completely new to the whole jailbreaking thing, so if you guys can write or clarify on how to do it completely id appreciate it so much!

    A few questions:
    1) redsn0w says you dont have to restore, does that mean once the redsn0w jailbreak finishes, all her stuff will be there, and she recieves Cydia?

    2) If theres no GUI, how will she select what she wants (Cydia, Installer, etc) No Installer please.

    3) Are there any manual steps (after the intial DFU)?

    4) Can you guys explain how to get into DFU, in order to start redsn0w.exe, and does DFU delete all the information stored (aka no way to get settings back/have to restore)?

    Thanks.

    Also, one last thing:
    Can you explain in detail how to get it into DFU mode (the way we should do it: itunes on or not, etc)? Also, will this trigger redsn0w's DFU guide? I dont want my friend to be confused.

    Run redsn0w and it will tell you how to get into DFU and even give you a timer for it.

    Do we have to follow it at exactly the same time? The instructions and timer initiates faster then I can begin to read it, nevermind following it.

    So i'm guessing we can do it anytime right? I mean, the timer seems misleading.

    Do you guys have any step by step instructions (or explain in detail what redsn0w does for each process)?
    ex. 1. Plug in iPod touch
    2. Start redsn0w.exe, initiate the DFU guide timers
    3. Follow the DFU guide/Get it into DFU
    4.
    Can someone continue, or finish this list? Up until the point where you can finally connect with itunes like normal (and cydia is installed).

    Just let it run and completely finish and reboot before you unplug it from the computer.

    Thats it, serious? Lol

    What does the redsn0w prompt window actually show anyway? And how long does this take?
