Hey, I'm new here. I signed up for an account in hopes of finding answers to my questions about jailbreaking... Anyway, I have an ipod touch 2nd generation, version 2.2.1, and I have itunes 22.214.171.124 (the latest one) I am planning on jailbreaking it, however I am completely new to all of this, so I was hoping someone could kindly help me along the process.... I looked around and decided to use this tutorial that was listed in one of the sticky threads: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155816 However, I had some questions pertaining to the tutorial as well as the jargon used in it. 1) Is the tutorial which I mentioned above reliable? I mean, does it work? Has it been proven? 2) It mentions restoring my itouch to its "factory" state. Am I safe to assume this means going to Settings - General - Reset ? That means I would be deleting everything off my itouch, right? This means ALL music, vids, apps, etc? 3) What is C++ redistributable and LIBusb? Where can I attain these programs? Thanks for answering! I'll probably end up asking more when I actually get started. edit: Step 2 of the turtorial says I should download the ipod touch 2.2.1 firmware, but my ipod touch is already in 2.2.1 version...should I still download this?
