    Hello,

    I got an iPod Touch 8 GB with firmware version 2.2.1 (5H11a) and I want to jailbreak it but I am having issues with redsn0w 0.7. I got the IPSW I think which is the right one but it will not recognize it. How can I jailbreak my ipod for free and properly?

    I want to be able to make themes for the iPod.

    I apologies but I am very new to all of this.

    redsn0w 0.3 to jailbreak 2.2.1

    But if youre not too experienced, I reccomend QuickFreedom.
    It will walk you through the jailbreak process, but takes pretty long (45 mins)
    Its very user-friendly though.

    redsn0w 0.3 was never developed past a command-prompt, and you have to put in DFU Mode and plug it in before running it, but it is very fast.

    2.2.1:
    redsn0w 0.3
    QuickFreedom

    Also, we cant discussing pirating the 3.0 firmware on this forum, please read the rules.

    I would use redsn0w 0.3 as it is fast and doesn't take longer than 10-15 min and you get to keep all the data you already have on your ipod on there.

    It tells you how to do DFU btw.

    Because 5H11a is a 2G iPod, which does not work with quickpwn.
