    Hello all,

    I am a complete nub for what I did in the next paragraph. Here's what happened.

    I went to my friends house. I'm too much of a chicken to jailbreak my iTouch on my own computer, so I did it at his. I downloaded redsn0w (not sure what version it was) and ran it. Jailbroke my iPod perfectly. I went to connect to his wifi (didn't try connecting before I jailbroke it) and it connected. I went to Cydia, and it gave me errors saying "No Internet Connection." Being the person I am, I panicked. I tried Safari, didn't work. I looked at his iTouch that's jailbroke, and his internet/Cydia worked. So I restored my iPod (really stupid of me), and the internet still didn't work. I thought, for some messed up reason, that my WiFi chip was busted (I dropped my iTouch earlier that day, but it had a case on, but still, I thought it broke). So I went home, and the internet worked fine. I kicked myself in the a** for restoring it. I realized I didn't bring the folder with the right version of redsn0w in it. So here I am.

    With redsn0w, there is a whole lot of different versions, I know. I have heard 0.1 works, 0.3 works, and a few other ones work too. Now, which one do I use? And where can I get it? I have an iTouch 2G with F/W 2.2.1 (just in case you can't read the model section of this post) on it. I do not want to upgrade to 3.0 (too much of a hassle). I'm running Windows XP SP3 here, and he (my friend) is running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32-bit (what's up with Vista having such a long name?). I will probably jailbreak it at his house, so I would need one that works with his specs. I think he deleted the folder, so I don't have the same one that worked before. I am really paranoid when it comes to hacking/jailbreaking, so forgive my n00bishness and paranoid-ness.

    Wow this is a long post. Thanks to all who reply.

    you dont have to pay for it. just click restore in itunes and when its done restoring you'll have 3.1.2 and then just jailbreak it using blackra1n.
