    Hi All,

    I'm a new owner of an iPod touch 3G and have never done a jailbreak before. Is there a resource/thread out there that goes over the basics and what's the best software to use to do this? I've been reading that there are a few options, for windows, mac, etc. I'm on a mac but have access to a PC, what's the best software to use for jailbreaking an iPod touch 3G with 3.1.2?

    Thanks for any help!

    If its 32/62 GB, then use blackra1n, you can find it in the 3.11 Jailbreak section.

    I have a 32GB...so it doesn't matter if you jailbreak using windows even if your primary machine syncing to iTunes is mac?

    also what's the difference between blackra1n and PwnageTool?

    That WOULD matter, Why? Because its a Windows-only TETHER jailbreak. Every time you want to turn on your iPod after turning it off or battery dieing, you gotta use bootcamp to load back windows and run blackra1n for a few seconds.

    As far as I know, there isn't. I don't see the point in jailbreaking the ipod touch 3rd gen, though.

    Other than the speed and graphics update, I don't see anything useful for jailbreaking. I've jailbroken my iphone, so its good.
