    Hi all,

    I'm so overwhelmed with all the different threads, sites, instructions, flamewars etc on how to jailbreak iPod Touches. I've read and re-read, and I give up.I really need a simple step-by-step instruction on how to jailbreak mine (though I didn't think I was actually this computer illiterate!). This is where I'm at so far:

    I have a 2nd Generation Touch (Version 2.2 5G77a)
    My iTunes is version 8.0.2.20

    I have downloaded the new Quickpwn22, and also have the firmware iPod2,1_2.2_5G77a_restore on my desktop for easy locating (I downloaded the firmware from quickpwn.com).

    When I run Quickpwn and select the firmware I downloaded to my desktop, I get the "firmware error string" message.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks, guys.

    You cannot jailbreak a second generation.

    The text appears in the "2nd Generation iPod Touch" forum.
    Here it is for those who need it:

    There is no iPod touch 2G Jailbreak!
    All videos stating otherwise are FAKE.

    Let me get this straight: even though the quickpwn devs have released jailbreaks for "2.2", that means that it's still only 1st generation iPods that can be jailbroken and as of right now there is NO way to jailbreak 2nd generation?

    I've been under the impression that the 2.2 firmware is jeailbreakable regardless of the generation of your touch...

    You are wrong. There is no support for 2nd generation touches in QuickPwn or any other jailbreaking software.

    2.2 Firmware is jailbreakable for iPhone, iPhone 3G & iPod touch 1G. Not 2G yet.
