    Hi, Im new to jailbreaking and stuff.
    I heard a rumour that it is not possible to jailbreak an iPod 2g 2.2.1 with iTunes 8.2, or do i have to downgrade? sorry if this is a noob question, but any help would be appreciated.

    also seconded. 3.0 has loads of more features, and you can get it LEGALLY w/ out paying for it.

    Go into DFU Mode
    Press Restore in iTunes
    Voula.

    no its not..... its using apples built in dfu feature to the benifit.. just because you happened to put your ipod in dfu mode and press the APPLE'S RESTORE BUTTON, doesnt mean its illegal.. get ur facts straight.
