    If you think you bricked your iPod, don't worry. Just download ZiPhone 2.6b and update you iPod Touch to firmware 1.1.4. If when the update finishes and the iPod Touch goes back into recovery mode, follow these steps:
    1) Open ZiPhone GUI and click Jailbreak (iPod Touch)
    2) If your iPod is still in recovery, open the "Advanced Features" tab.
    3) Click on NVRAM Fix, and your iPod should have scrolling lines of text, then reboot to 1.1.4!



    First off, you need a freshly restored iPoT running 1.1.1
    After you restore your iPoT, go to www.jailbreakme.com and jailbreak it.
    Once jailbroken go into installer and install BSD Subsystem, OpenSSH, and the BSD Fix.
    Download this file and extract it: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ozxfcx
    Put all the files inside of this folder into /usr/sbin.
    Time to execute commands, use your SSH Client or Install Term Vt-100 from installer.

    1) Create a directory in "/" and name it "jb".
    2) Copy the files inside of the downloaded files above into /jb/ and /usr/sbin/
    3) Now copy the below quotes:
    Don't mind the errors, it's normal, ignore them.
    Once you are to this stage, I recommend changing to the iPod, and opening Term-Vt100. It may take a while to load, but it wont take that long.

    It's going to say that it could not open the file, it's okay too.

    4) Now you have entered a "sub directory" in Terminal. This is the trick part:
    This says that we want to edit the OS 2.
    This will pop up: Partition id ('0' to disable) [0 - FF]: [AF] (? for help)
    Just press enter. Then this will pop up: Do you wish to edit in CHS mode? [n]
    Press enter again, until this pops up: Partition offset [0 - 3964928]:
    This time enter the offset that is equal to your iPod, under EDIT 2.
    Next this will pop up: Partition size [1 - 3888065]: [3888065].
    This time enter the size according to you iPod under EDIT 2.

    Once this is done type:
    This time type:
    When Do you wish to edit in CHS mode? [n] pops up, press enter.
    When Partition offset [0 - 3964928]: [3887922] pops up, type in the correct offset for your iPod, but this time in EDIT 3.
    Again, when Partition size [1 - 77006]: [77006] comes up, enter the correct size for your iPod from EDIT 3.
    ________________________________
    iPod Touch 8GB:
    EDIT 2
    offset: 153720
    size: 3657465
    EDIT 3
    offset: 3811185
    size: 153600
    iPod Touch 16GB
    EDIT 2
    offset:76863
    size:3811059
    EDIT 3
    offset:3887922
    size:77006
    _________________________________

    Now that the "hard" part is done, you have to submit the changes you just made and create the new partition.
    This shows you what changes you just set so that you can review them.
    This part writes the changes to the iPod. It tells disk0 to save the new changes. Warning will pop up, press y.
    Device could not be accessed exclusively.
    A reboot will be needed for changes to take effect. OK? [n]

    Now that you are done with this part, you are now recommended to switch back to your PC and enter the commands in remotely.
    Now type this command to sync the partitions with eachother:
    This next command may take a few seconds.
    An error will then pop up, and it is completely normal.
    For this next command, it takes around 6 minutes or so, so go take a nice bathroom break.
    This should end with telling you that Snowbird appears to be OK. GOOD!
    This next command makes the folder where we put our new partition.
    You are now going to boot from the new partition!
    If it reboots perfectly, Congratulations!!!

    HOW TO UPGRADE YOUR PARTITION
    1) Click "Update" in iTunes.
    2) Wait for the update to finish, and if iTunes doesn't give and error, then your doing great.
    3) You iPod should be in restore mode, and now we have to get it out.
    4) Download http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/site/112jb.htmland extract jailbreak.jar.
    5) Open the 1.1.4 ipsw and put kernelcache.release.s5l8900xrb in the same folder as iPHUC.
    6) Type these commands in iPHUC:
    7) When your iPod boots back up, enter these commands:
    If it boots normally into your partition, then you are all set, you can now dual boot!!!
    __________________________________________________________
    You're done! Now in order to get MobileTerminal to work you have to:

    Install the BSD_Base and BSD_Extras from http://iphone.natetrue.com
    Copy Terminal.app into /mnt/Applications
    mkdir -p /mnt/usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/
    ln -s /usr/lib /mnt/usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/lib
    cp -p /mnt/bin/bash /mnt/bin/sh
    chmod 4755 /mnt/usr/bin/login

    I think this is actually much easier than the 76 step jailbreak, because it doesn't need the Hex editor and stuff, its all about the commands you enter, which are almost all the same.
    The reason im doing this is so i can get 2.0 firmware on it and jailbreak it instantly. It opens up the other firmware you install on the partition, so you don't need to hack into it, it is already jailbroken. I know it's a little in advance, but i leave today for vacation and just wanted to test it out.
