    I'm trying to jailbreak my iPod touch 2G. I have 2 computers, one mac and one pc. For some reason I can't remember which computer I upgraded (legally) my iPod with. On my mac I found a ipsw labelled ipodxxxxx.ipsw. On my pc I found a file labelled iphonexxxxx.ipsw.
    I have tried using both files and both don't work. Redsnow with crash if I try the iPod.ipsw file. But if I try the iPhone file it goes through to waiting for device to restart, and won't go any further.
    I tried redsnow on my mac, and quickpwn and the same thing happens. Actually quickpwn doesn't recognize the firmware at all.
    Is the ipsw file corrupt? Where can I redownload a legal copy of the firmware?Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    if you are not afraid of a restore, just delete the ipsw files. then restore your ipod, iTunes will re-download the file you need, without charging you again.

    don't use quickpwn, it does not work with the 2g, use redsn0w 0.8

    My problem with jailbreaking is that I cannot find these ipsw restore files anywhere on my computer to use with redsn0w. I have bought this and redownloaded it when I restored, but I cannot find the files anywhere.
