    Hey,

    I was wondering if there was a way to download an already jailbroken 2.2 firmware and then install it on my touch, would it be?

    If so, could one of you nice guys upload it to a website and let me do that?

    Thanks

    You could try, but you'd have to trust that the firmware being offered is actually a good, non-corrupt file. Best to just create your own custom IPSW with PwnageTool (although if you're on Windows you're out of luck for creating a custom 2.2, sorry).

    And we can't upload it because that would be illegal.

    Because firmwares are, I believe, copyright of Apple and it's against the law to upload them to the internet.

    just download quickpwn 2.2 and jailbreak your firmware, it's much easier.

    Because its modifying one of Apples firmwares AKA they have legal rights saying that distributing the modded firmware is illegal.

    Firmware files are usually around 150-200 MB, so emailing isn't an option. Besides, just google it and you'll find lots of results.

    If you're not the admin, you may not be able to run QuickPwn successfully either. The main issue here is that modifying the FW is screwing around with Apple's intellectual property, and THAT is illegal (since we're not allowed to distribute modified versions of their software, per the EULA).
