    Hey everyone, this is my first post here, this is a amazing forum! My question is, is it possible to Jailbreak a iPod Touch 2G running 2.2.1 on a MacBook running OSX 10.5.6? I am VERY new to the world of "hacking" anything and am having trouble with my iPod. I downloaded quickpwn and it doesn't even recognize my touch is connected to my MacBook. After a few google searches I came across something that said its not possible to jailbreak a touch with using a mac running 10.5.6.
    How confused am I!?!?!

    Like the poster above me said, use redsn0w beta 0.3

    -go here: redsn0w.com
    -download the redsn0w beta for mac.
    -it is not an application; it is a folder with files in it.
    -put the folder on the desktop
    -search the for the application called "Terminal" in Finder.
    -copy and paste this into terminal: cd ~/desktop/redsn0w
    -then copy and paste this: ./redsn0w

    then follow the steps and you're jailbroken! redsn0w beta 0.3 is just like quickpwn but it's not an application. Meaning that you won't lose any stuff.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the quick response guys! After watching some youtube videos I found out that their is a "tethered" jailbreak available. From what I understand that means I cant turn off my touch and turn it back on and have it work unless I can connect it to my Mac. I dont want this, I would rather just have it stay the way it is, which is UNjailbroken. What you guys gave me directions to above, is that a tethered version?

    No, it's untethered.

    Okay, click on the QuickPwn link in my Sig. That will take you to a sticky with three other links. Click on the Mac link, and download it.
    After that, just put your iPod into DFU Mode and Run the thing you just downloaded.

    Ok cool. I went to this website http://redsn0w.com/ and clicked on the macosx button and it downloaded a 1.5kb file titled redsn0w-mac_0.3.zip.4841589.TPB.******* and I go to click on that and all I get is "There is no default application specified to open the document redsn0w-mac_0.3.zip.4841589.TPB.*******.
    I then went to terminal via finder, applications, utilities, terminal, and now I have no idea what to do...I'm telling you I'm I know pretty much nothing about this. I got my iPod touch 2G tonight at the apple store and have watched and read tons of sweet things you can do with a jailbroken iphone/ipod touch and since then I have wanted to do that....thats pretty much all I know about all of this... So what do I do next?

    Click on mitchell's Quickpwn link in his sig. It will bring you to a [PIRACY.mu] link which you can download it from there.

    I guess my post wasn't technical enough. Whatever.
