    Ok well im not a total idiot when it comes to jailbreaking because back in the day i had my PSP hacked.

    Couple questions.....

    - what is the easiest way/tutorial out at the moment.

    - I heard i have to restore my ipod to factory defaults (100% clean), is this true?

    - how can i save a backup if my safari bookmarks?


    I would like an untethered JB btw.

    Okay if you want 2.2.1 jailbroken, I'd recommend using a copy of QuickPWN 2.2.5-2 and just following the instructions

    and yeah you would have to restore your ipod if you use QuickPWN

    if you upgrade to 3.0, you could use redsn0w to jailbreak and no, you wouldn't have to restore to factory defaults

    The last question i really don't understand what you mean...sorry lol

    Like in the safari app you can save bookmarks of websites, is their somewhere i on my ipod that i can find like a bookmarks folder that i can copy and paste to my desktop so that when i restore it and then jail break it i can put my bookmarks back on. Some hae some important information i need.

    Also, if i use quickpwn it is just plug and let it go right? Or do i have to mess around with manual stuff? Cause i was reading some tuts on the site and got a little confused.

    Also...

    - after jailbreak i can still use itunes right? Its not gonna go crazy and bust a nut on my ipod right?

    - do you have a link to the right quickpwn for me?

    haha i'm really not sure about the browsing stuff/bookmarks.. check iTunes? idk if you can do a reverse sync w/out it being jailbroken

    when you use QuickPWN, you have to hold the home button and the power button in specific sequences, it shows you right on screen of the QuickPWN Program

    yes you can still use it in iTunes, i had my iPod jailbroken on 2.2 and 3.0 and it was fine w/ iTunes

    google for QuickPWN 2.2.5-2.zip

    ^^^

    WRONG WRONG WRONG

    If you are jailbreaking 2.2.1 use redsnbow 0.3

    you will lose NOTHING, no need to restore first

    Quickpwn is now unofficial run by some hack who got the domain name before the dev team

    redsn0w 0.3 is the OFFICIAL dev team JB for 2.2.1

    and it's way better <<< OPINION

    ehh. quickpwn is PWNAGE. it's so much easier to use...software and everything is all in one place, especially for noobs... i mean they're both easy...just that, if you're gonna jailbreak old software, use old jailbreaking methods. now if it were threepointohh then sure redsn0w it.

    redsn0w 0.3 IS old.

    it's the right prog for the question at hand

    no instructions necessary just click and you're broke

    yeah after you download a firmware. it works and all. i just prefer using QuickPWN for lower than 3.0 and redsn0w for 3.0 and higher.it just works better. since he has a lot of stuff on his ipod anyways, it's prob better to restore and let the jailbreak take place.

    oh, and as with anything jailbreaking to be OFFICIAL is pretty lame.

    jailbreaking is not official, if it were, APPLE would be promoting it.
