    So, My old iPod touch went on a wild ride through the washing machine about 6 months ago; I had just come home from school and pulled my iPod out of my pocket and threw it on my bed. Later on that night I had forgotten about it and was asked by my mother to change my bed sheets, soon after it had been folded up into my blue and black striped sheet did I realise I had no idea where my iPod was.

    After a couple of minutes searching frantically, trying to avoid the obvious. I decided to face the sad truth and sprinted to the washing machine. To my devastation a certain thin sheet felt unusually heavy, as though it was carrying some kind of metallic device.

    Weeks later I went out to get my second iPod Touch and was excited to have a brand new shiny back, (and then pissed when about a month later I found out they were releasing a second generation iPod Touch) but that's a completely different story.

    It had been months and I had forgotten about my drowned, supposedly dead iPod, when I did a shelf clean up and discovered the familiar black box, with Macy Gray's smiling face awaiting my arrival. My mind drifted back to the good old 1.1.1 days and then to the blood boiling night when I realised the murder that had taken place inside a cold heartless bed sheet.

    I opened the box and found the scratched metal that had taken hours of my hacking time with it in its death and immediately a light bulb flicked on in my head and I headed towards my 5.0Vdc GHT iPod wall charger. I picked up the white cord from my desk and plugged one end into my deceased friend, then the other into my glossy black adapter. To my great surprise a little white apple I new all too well appeared on the screen. I let out a loud "THIS IS f***IN' AWESOME!" Then explored my pages and pages of springboard screen reminiscing on all the good times, all the homework that was late because I was too busy on WinSCP or downloading the latest Summerboard theme from Installer, (not that I told my teachers that)

    Anyway, The iPod is my mum's now, especially since she put in on buying the second one. As for me, as much as it pains me to see iPod number one go to waste on my mother as it only gets used for walks around the block. The only application being used is the Music.app (seriously, who uses their iPod for music anymore? {I'm kidding of course}

    I'll try to answer any questions you have.
    Thanks for your time guys.

    Great story! Firmware 1.1.1 and the early months of jailbreaking were fun!

    To be honest, they really were!
    I liked the slightly dangerous jailbreak methods back then, because you got an adrenaline rush from using it. I jailbroke my device about 5 days after I got it, so I really didn't want to break it. I remember pressing the button to jailbreak it on jailbreakme.com was one of the hardest things I've ever done with it!
