    Hey guys, this is my Tutorial on how to Jailbreak an iPod Touch 2nd Generation to the iPod Touch / iPhone 2.2.1 software.

    Hope you guys like it.


    Links:
    QuickFreedom (the Jailbreaking GUI) direct link:QuickFreedom Setup (Direct Download)
    The iPod Touch / iPhone 2.2.1 Software: The link is provided within QuickFreedom to a direct download



    Step 1.
    Launch QuickFreedom and select "JAILBREAK"

    Step 2.
    You will then be presented with a windows asking two things...
    1. Do you have LibUSB installed? (This program is esentially a sheild to your USB ports, as during the Jailbreak process, if you do not have this program installed, your USB ports will stop working. [Dont panic, just make sure you install it {it comes with QuickFreedom, just click 'INSTALL'}])
    2. It will ask you to locate the Original 2.2.1 iPod Firmware (Called iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw etc.)
    Just browse for it.
    Let it then copy the firmware to a temp folder then click "NEXT"

    Step 3.
    It will then take you to a third screen, presenting you with three options...
    1. Would you like to install INSTALLER. (Installer is a package downloader - replaced by CYDIA, and is now useless)
    2. It will ask if you are already Jailbroken (this is only for changing boot logos, etc. - leave UN-CHECKED!)
    3. Use Custom Logos? (this is if you want to use a custom boot logo / recovery logo, it has 8 default ones, and more can either be made (320x480 under 100kb) or can be downloaded.)
    Select the appropriate boxes, then click "CREATE FIRMWARE".
    (This will take aprox. 10 Minutes, and will create a Custom [Jailbroken] Firmware on your desktop)

    Step 4.
    With the custom firmware created on your desktop, you are now taken to a new window, with two buttons:
    One saying "DFU INSTRUCTIONS" and another saying "START PRE-JAILBREAK"
    Now you can ignore that first button because I am going to walk you through the DFU instructions personally. But if, for some reason, you dont do it correctly under my instructions, you can use that.
    First, connect your iPod Touch to your computer, and turn on your iPod. When iTunes opens, close it.
    Next, hold down the POWER button and the HOME button on your iPod for 10-11 seconds, and then release the POWER button and continue holding the HOME button for a further 8-10 seconds, or until you hear the "Duh-DUH!" noise from Windows that lets you know a device has been connected. iTunes will then pop up saying that it has detected an iPod in Recover Mode, and that you must restore the iPod to continue using it, for now, just MINIMIZE that window.
    After you have done the above steps, your iPod should be in Recovery Mode. (You will know, iTunes will come up and tell you an iPod has been connected in DFU mode.)
    Now you must click the button that says "START PRE-JAILBREAK". After this, your iPod's screen will turn white, and you will here the Windows noises that let you know a device has connected, and the noise that lets you know it has disconnected...This will happen multiple times, all of that is perfectly normal. This process can take anywhere from 2- 10 minutes...It just varies. Wait for this to complete, then click NEXT.

    Step 5.
    Now you will be presented with a window with instructions on what to do next, and a picture of an unlocked lock, just X out of that window, as the instructions have been posted here.
    Now re-open that iTunes window we minimized before when it detected the iPod in DFU mode.
    Look for the button that says RESTORE, in iTunes. Now hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard, and click on the RESTORE button. This will bring up a window asking you to browse for the Original Firmware. Instead, navigate to your desktop (in the window) and select a file on your desktop called "CUSTOM FIRMWARE.ipsw" (or something like that) [DO NOT SELECT THE ORIGINAL FIRMWARE]. Now let iTunes restore your iPod. It will boot and reboot a few times, that all good, sometimes, you will see your Custom Boot Logo (if you opted for one), and sometimes you will see the default Apple Logo, this is fine. When you boot afterwards, it will always be your Custom Boot Logo.
    Now you are pretty much done, just let the iPod Restore and Sync, and you are done. When you boot your iPod, you will see your Custom Boot Logo (if chosen), and you will have the App, CYDIA, on your homescreen. You may have INSTALLER too, if you chose to install it.

    You have now SUCESSFULLY JAILBROKEN YOUR iPOD TOUCH 2G to the 2.2.1 FIRMWARE!
    Congrats!

    Things to Remember:
    The program form Cydia, LogoME, will NOT work for you. This only works if you have Jailbroken using the Redsn0w command line Jailbreak.


    Thanx for reading guys, and if you liked it, donate points.

    Wouldn't it have been easier to just SEARCH for one of the many guides there already are and THEN link that one to them? Instead of making your own?
