    Please note: THIS IS ONLY INTENDED AS A SOLUTION TO THIS SPECIFIC PROBLEM IT IS NOT THE GENERAL METHOD FOR JAILBREAKING YOUR IPOD AS IT IS MISSING SOME STEPS!!!!

    OK I take no credit for this, I have only modified some of the steps which I THINK should fix your problem. Before you do this make sure you are connected to a wifi and follow these to the letter:

    1. Load http://jailbreak.toc2rta.com on iPod

    2. Exit iTunes, and kill ituneshelper.exe process

    3. Extract iPhuc to directory on computer from http://[PIRACY.rs].com/files/61742428/iphuc.zip.

    4. Copy iTunesMobileDevice.dll from C:\Program Files\Common

    Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin to the same folder as iPhuc.exe

    5. Copy readline5.dll from

    http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/down...ne-bin-zip.php to the

    same folder as iPhuc.exe

    6. Run iPhuc.exe

    7. Plug in your iPod

    8. type "getfile /etc/fstab". This will download fstab to iPhuc's

    directory. Open it up with your favorite text editor and confirm that it looks like this:

    /dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1
    /dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0 2

    if it isn't then stop following these steps and do a manual reset and use touchfree again or trying changing the "rdisk0s1" manually just search it in the forum. if it is then good news

    17. We now need to install ssh and associated tools. This is all now old

    territory, but unfortunately, everything is either "one-click" or

    designed for Macs. Thus we need to do some sweating here. Download

    http://iphone.natetrue.com/dropbearkey.exe. You will also need

    cygwin1.dll from

    http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl....shtml?cygwin1.

    18. Open CMD and do:

    dropbearkey -t rsa -f dropbear_rsa_host_key
    dropbearkey -t dss -f dropbear_dss_host_key

    You should now have two files in that directory, dropbear_rsa_host_key

    and dropbear_dss_host_key. Copy or move these into your iPhuc directory.

    19. Download and extract http://iphone.natetrue.com/BSD_Base-2.0.tar.gz

    into your iPhuc directory.

    20. Download and extract

    http://www.abigato.com/iphone-ssh-kit-vr1.tar.bz2 into your iPhuc

    directory. Make sure dropbear, fd6, au.asn.ucc.matt.dropbear.plist,

    glob6, goto, osh and sh6 are in the same directory as iPhuc.exe. Move

    them there if you have to.

    21. Open up iPhuc and type in "mkdir /etc/dropbear",

    22. "cd /etc/dropbear".

    ---
    DIRECTORIES ARE
    /etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key,

    /etc/dropbear/dropbear_dss_host_key, /bin/chmod, /bin/sh and

    /usr/bin/dropbear
    ---

    23. "putfile dropbear_rsa_host_key"

    24. "putfile dropbear_dss_host_key"

    25. "cd /bin"

    26. "putfile chmod"

    27. Rename sh6 in your iPhuc directory to sh, then "putfile sh" in

    iPhuc.

    28. "cd /usr/bin"

    29. "putfile dropbear"

    30. Make sure /etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key,

    /etc/dropbear/dropbear_dss_host_key, /bin/chmod, /bin/sh and

    /usr/bin/dropbear now exist on your iPod with iPhuc.

    31. "cd /usr/sbin"

    32. "getfile update"

    33. In Windows Explorer, rename "update", which you just downloaded, to

    "update.orig".

    34. Rename "chmod" in the iPhuc folder to "update".

    35. In iPhuc, "putfile update", so you're replacing /usr/sbin/update

    with chmod.

    36. "cd /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/"

    37. "getfile com.apple.update.plist"

    38. Open com.apple.update.plist in a text editor

    Right after it says <string>/usr/sbin/update</string> add:

    <string>555</string>
    <string>/bin/chmod</string>
    <string>/bin/sh</string>
    <string>/usr/bin/dropbear</string>

    39. Save the file. Upload the modified version with "putfile

    com.apple.update.plist"

    40. Also, "putfile au.asn.ucc.matt.dropbear.plist"

    41. Reboot the iPod twice. The first reboot should set the required

    permissions. The second should start the ssh server (since proper

    permissions are now set). And close iPhuc.

    42. Theoretically, SSH should be working now. Find out the IP of your

    iPod in the iPod's wireless settings.

    43. Try to ssh to it with Putty

    (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html).

    Username root, password alpine.

    So, okay, now we need to get sftp running, do some clean-up and then I

    think we can install Installer.app and be good.

    Download WinSCP (http://winscp.net/download/winscp404setup.exe)
    ---

    44. Download http://apps.iphonexe.com/24940.zip. You will need

    /libexec/sftp-server, /usr/bin/scp and /usr/lib/libarmfp.dylib from that

    archive. Extract them all to your iPhuc folder.

    45. Using iPhuc's putfile capability, put sftp-server in /usr/libexec/,

    put scp in /usr/bin/, and put libarmfp.dylib in /usr/lib/.

    46. Remember that BSD_Base folder you extracted? We need to raid it for

    some commands. You will need /bin/ls, /bin/mv, /bin/pwd, and /bin/csh.

    Copy those to your iPhuc directory.

    47. In iPhuc:

    cd /bin
    putfile ls
    putfile mv
    putfile pwd
    putfile csh

    48. SSH into your iPod. What we now need to do is chmod them all

    executable.

    49. In SSH, "/bin/chmod 555 /bin/ls"
    50. "/bin/chmod 555 /bin/mv"
    51. "/bin/chmod 555 /bin/pwd"
    52. "/bin/chmod 555 /bin/csh"
    53. "/bin/chmod 555 /usr/bin/scp"
    54. "/bin/chmod 555 /usr/libexec/sftp-server"

    Theoretically, sftp should work now, yes.

    55. Also upload glob6 to "/bin" with iPhuc and in SSH, "/bin/chmod 555

    /bin/glob6".

    56. Type "/bin/csh" to test out this shell (in SSH). This has advantages

    of not requiring you to type in the full path of every executable in the

    future.

    57. In SSH "cd /var/root".

    58. Type ls. You should have a Library, Mediaold, and Media directory.

    59. "mv Media Media_sym"

    60. "mv Mediaold Media"

    61. Reboot your iPod and check your iPod in iTunes.

    ---
    On to installing AppTap
    ---

    62. Download and install 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org/). We need it to

    crack open the dumb Installer.app Nullsoft installer.

    63. Download the Windows installer for Installer.app at

    http://www.nullriver.com/~adam/AppTappInstaller.exe

    64. Use 7-zip to open AppTappInstaller.exe and extract the Installer.app

    folder from it.

    65. Use SFTP to upload Installer.App into /Applications on your iPod.

    66. In SSH, type "/bin/chmod -Rf +x /Applications/"

    67. Slide to unlock your iPod then in SSH type

    /Applications/Installer.app/Installer and hit return to launch

    Installer.

    68. After AppTapp opens, press control+c in SSH to close it

    69. Open Safari on the iPod and navigate to

    http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta. Please make sure while you're

    doing this that the hacked TIFF image isn't loaded again. So if starts

    loading, hit the X.

    70. Tap yes to add it to Installer

    71. Back in ssh, type "/Applications/Installer.app/Installer" and hit

    return to launch Installer again.

    72. Install the Community Sources package.

    73. Install Trip1PogoStick located under the "System" category to

    enable scrolling and applications.

    74. Restart the iPod. You should be done.

    I know it's long but it should theoratically sort you out.

    you might as well buy a gun and blow your head off. Use the touchfree application and just hold the home key + power key for over 25 secs, you will be rewarded with a please connect itunes image, this is where you connect itunes, then follow the readme.txt provided in the touchfree app.
