    ok now, youtube startin to piss me off lol
    i googled and watch some vids and i think i know the basics

    download ziphone 3
    restore my ipod by going to itunes then pressing restore?
    then press jailbreak (ipod supported) on ziphone

    and then it should do the rest... ?

    i seen so many different steps on youtube, none of which were in the same order
    and then i read comments bout people getting errors saying "bds0 ms root" or w.e and they gotta bricked ipod and shiz, i dont wanna fk mine up

    can someone give me a detailed tutorial? couldnt find one on here, and the youtube vids were all done by 10 year olds who dont explain things properly and record their screen wit crap cameras


    Details:
    i have a 1.1.4 32 gb ipod touch
    its not fresh out da box, got ALOT of stuff on it now

    iliberty is 1000x safer please use that. Also follow my guide to avoid freezing. Click on the link in my signature. The iPod repair thread.

    thanks guys

    also im hearing alot on these "repo.xml" files
    wth are those?

    i was expecting a .zip file when i was going to download a release but got that instead

    i plan on jailbreaking my ipod soon as i get off of work at 11 tonight
    that jailbreaking guide jpg is hella complicated than the ones on youtube lol, but ill do all that if it works, and this all works on 32gb ipods right?

    an xml is, in this case, user by "installer" to get information about the applications. It's a source. The applications are zips.

    1.1.5 has the same frameworks as 1.1.4 and can be jailbroken using ZiPhone 2.6b or 3.0, same as 1.1.4.
