    I keep getting an error in every tutorial I try. I enter the path for the Xpn folder and it goes there. Then I enter the ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw and the -700 and all that I just cant remember it right now but I know the end part is right.

    And it starts with like hashing ipsw or something then it goes through these files. Then at the end it says Error: Could not load IPSW ive tried like 800 times. Ive tried 5 different tutorials.

    And the IPSW im using is 2.2 if that means anything?

    I am running Vista 32bit home edition.

    You need to right click and run it as an administrator.

    hmmm wait a min

    you done all these?

    1.) Extract redsn0w lite and XPwn to your Desktop.

    2.) Save (or move) the 2.2.1 IPSW into the XPwn folder.

    3.) Copy the rslite\FirmwareBundles\iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11.bundle folder into your XPwn-0.5.7-win32\FirmwareBundles\ folder.
    Copy the whole folder, not just the included files.

    4.) Open up a Command Prompt (type cmd in the Search bar if on Vista).

    5.) Type the following:

    Code:

    cd C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\XPwn-0.5.7-win32\
    ipsw "iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw" "iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Custom_Restore.ipsw" -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    there is your problem.

    you only did TomFW.ipsw but didnt put the original ipsw file in.

    it should be

    ipsw "iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw" "TomFW.ipsw" -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar

    not

    ipsw "TomFW.ipsw" -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar

    No i put the whole thing its just cut off.

    I put this

    ipsw "OriginalFW.ipsw" "customFW.ipsw" -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar bundles/Installer.tar

    Also, I am using the 2.2 firmware. I was told that it was okay.
