    I got my iPod Touch 2G a few months ago so I'm not new to the iPod itself and I know my way around it. I used to jailbreak PSP's practically for a living until the fad died and now that the iPod has replaced it, i'm looking to get into the homebrew/jailbreaking scene. The problem is, I don't know what the hell is going on right now. What I do know is that the jailbreak isn't out yet and what not, but all this talk about yellowsn0w and redsn0w, DFU, iBoot, iRecovery, 0wnboot, ARM7, LLB, 5G77a, its jibberish to me. Probably also because im a Windows user and not a Mac user. Can anyone politely explain to me so I can understand all of this >.< you can say I've been living under a rock because I don't visit this forum often but I plan to soon if I can get up to speed. Thanks guys.


    Protip: maybe you should make a thread about iPod Touch vocabulary so people like me can read it and understand better.

    Yellowsn0w was the iPhone jailbreak that was released a short while ago. Redsn0w is the iPhone Dev Team (one of the teams working on a jailbreak, the other is Chronic Dev) jailbreak that is speculatively going to be released shortly. Other than that, reading the stickies will give you most everything you need to know.

    Thanks for being friendly guys, I checked the FAQ and what not but I still am missing some info on a couple things. What does DFU stand for? I see it all over the place but I don't see an explanation

    . Whats the difference between 0wnboot and redsn0w? Is iBoot a program or just something that happens on the iPod? Also one more thing, whats the difference between ARM7 and ARM11? If it's not too much to ask, thanks again.

    How about setting up a glossary of acronyms used in this forum and posting it on a sticky? I'm not familiar with all the acronyms used so any volunteers? xD

    DFU stands for Device Firmware Upgrade and is similar to restore mode.
