    So I'm following this guide.http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137683.

    I'm at the part where I enter in DFU mode. I know I am in DFU mode because my iPod is unresponsive. The next step is to enter in Terminal "./rslite" but when i do that I get this error: "Bad CPU type in executable".

    Can you help me please?

    I was getting the same error, but that was before I had all of the files in the right place. So make sure you've transferred all of the files into the folder and I think that should do it (or at least it did for me)

    Yep I just checked and everything is there. I even downloaded it all again and it still gives me the same error. What was missing for you? Anyone else know what to do?

    Maybe it doesn't work on PPC macs? Are you guys on Intel or PPC?

    yep, i had the same problem also and it is bc of the ppc processor, i had to use my win box to jailbreak it then sync it back to my mac...... hopefully it will be compatible in the near future.....

    The redsn0w tool was compiled on an Intel platform. Won't work on PPC.

    This means the binary was not compiled for your processor!


    use redj0hnny instead!
