    i just tried to jailbreak using quick freedom and after i shift clicked restore in itunes it extracted... and an error 1601 popped up
    what does that mean and what did i do wrong
    thanks
    this freaked me out but i put it back into dfu

    .. i dont know if this as anything to do with it, but when it told me to do the shift restore, my ipod screen stayed black and didn't turn white.? i though that was probably a problem

    same thing

    I tried to jailbreak again last night and seem to be running into the same issue, my screen never went white but i get an E1600. Hope you find your answer soon, if I figure it out I'll be sure to tell you.
