    Hiho

    I'm new here, been wanting and waiting to JB my 2G iPod touch for a while now, redsn0w came along but it looked too complicated (I know how to use terminal etc. but I just didn't think it was worth it at the time)

    Several GUI "one-click" applications have surfaced recently, made by forum members themselves, which I am really grateful for and I'm sure to others who have never Jailbroken an ipod before.

    Problem is, why are all of these programs exclusive to windows? That's the baffling logic to me, as far as I know, It's far less complex to jailbreak using a mac than it is windows - so is there a reason for the lack of mac apps? Is someone planning to release one (or port one from windows) any time soon?

    I guess for those of us on macs that do not wish to go through the process of redsn0w lite will have to wait.

    Unless there is one and I've just completely bypassed it.

    haha, just kidding. do you mean jailbreak as a whole or a boot program?

    Just do the rslite and the Terminal thing. It's simple enough. And there is no worst case scenario. Just restore if you mess up. All you're risking is some time to sync all your music and apps back on the iPod.

    i just did my ipod touch using the tethered jailbreak, i had soem difficulties but that was because i didn't following instructions properly, but if u read everyhitng right and do it correctly then its pretty easy to do
