    This tutorial should work for most people having trouble. Credits to Ezra for having the first real thread on this, but this is just to help iPod Touch users who need the GUI but can't do it following those directions.


    Download http://xs1.iphwn.org/releases/QuickPwn.zip AND http://outgoing.ifans.com/?d=aHR0cDovL3hzMS5pcGh3bi5vcmcvcmVsZWFzZXMvUXVpY2tQd25HVUkuemlw, and extract them both to a folder on your desktop

    1. Download or find yourself a copy of iPod1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw (Or iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw for iPhone 2G, and iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw for iPhone 3G)

    2. Put your iPod to DFU mode, and restore to 2.0.2 through iTunes

    3. Copy the 2.0.1 firmware you downloaded above to the QuickPwn tool folder on your desktop

    4. Plug your iPod in, but close iTunes when it pops up

    5. For safety, open the task manager and close all processes that contain the words "Apple", "iTunes", or "iPod"

    6. Run the QuickPwn-Bundle-Release.exe

    7. Select "iPod Touch" from the GUI that pops up (Or "iPhone" for 2G, "iPhone 3G" for 3G)

    8. Find the 2.0.1 firmware file when the next step appears

    9. Follow the instructions given to you in the command line code. Wait until the window closes automatically to unplug your iPod

    Well, DFU is just a precaution. It doesn't really matter, I just threw it in there.

    For pwning, yes you do need to DFU, as the iPod won't accept it from just recovery mode/restoring.

    Yes it does, except select the iPhone or iPhone 3G options at the GUI menu.

    HELPFUL HINT!

    no need to download 2.0.1. you already haz it!

    go to: C:\Documents and Settings\(your user folder)\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    the (your user folder) is just the name of your log in i thinks. mine is gateway user because i dont have a log in name for my computer. also, i dont know about vista or mac. sorry. just find the application data folder. it is probably HIDDEN so you have to change the hidden file setting. in mac it is probobly in the libray folder or "show pakage files" on the itunes icon in finder. i dont know cuz my mac broke itself a long time ago so i got a windows.
