    I just got a used Ipod touch on ebay a few days ago and want to jailbreak it. It already has 2.21 firmware on it. Can it still be done? I also upgraded the new ITunes 8.1 today as well. I used this how-to guide, http://www.iphoneheat.com/2009/03/h...ak-iphone-2g-firmware-221-step-by-step-guide/, & attempted to download the 2.21 firmware (iPhone1,1_2.2.1_5H11_Restore) which I already have. I can't get it to restore, I hold down shift and click restore and select the firmware I downloaded and got this message, "The Ipod Jon's Ipod could not be restored because the firmware is not compatible". Can I not jailbreak this Ipod or am I just doing something wrong.

    Sorry if there is another thread about this but I am new.

    If you don't already see the problem, I will pray for you.

    The fimware you are using is for the iphone, not the ipod touch. if it already has 2.2.1, then it cannot be updated any more unless you own a 3.0 beta.
    DO NOT TRY TO UPDATE IT ANYMORE

    if you want to jailbreak your iPot:
    to jailbreak it, plug it in, close itunes and ituneshelper, and download quickfreedom, its pretty easy, and not very easy to mess up.

    or, you could go with
