    *** JAILBREAKING 3.0 FIRMWARE ***

    Step One)
    Move your recently bought .ipsw to an easy location.

    Mac:
    USERNAME/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/

    Windows:
    C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    Inside the folder you should see your 3.0 firmware file (legally bought).
    The name should be "xxxxx_3.0_7A341_Restore".

    Move (or copy) the .ipsw to an easier location (Desktop or My Documents)

    Step Two)
    Download the appropriate redsn0w executable.

    Windows: redsn0w 0.7.1
    Mac: redsn0w 0.7.1

    * I use redsn0w 0.7.1 because its the stablest and doesnt crash Cydia.

    Step Three)
    Plug your device into your computer and enter DFU Mode.

    Theres a link in my signature to an iClarified Video Tutorial on entering DFU.
    (please watch if youre unsure)​

    Step Four)
    Open redsn0w and select the corresponding .ipsw

    Once redsn0w is opened, press "BROWSE".

    In Step One, we moved the .ipsw to an easier location.
    Select the .ipsw now.

    Step Five)
    Finish Up.

    After the .ipsw is done processing, keep pressing next.
    We already put it in DFU Mode so it should start jailbreaking immediately.

    Step Six)
    There is none.
    Your done

    *** JAILBREAKING 2.2.1 ***


    * If you have any problems, you can PM Me through iPodTouchFans.

    Step One)
    Make sure your .ipsw is in your Application Data.

    Mac:
    USERNAME/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/

    Windows:
    C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

    Inside the folder you should see your 3.0 firmware file (legally bought).
    The name should be "xxxxx_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore".

    Step Two):
    Download the appropriate redsn0w executable.

    Windows: redsn0w 0.3
    Mac: redsn0w 0.3

    * redsn0w 0.3 is the best tool for jailbreaking 2.2.1.

    You can use QuickFreedom, but it sucks and requires a restore. (oh, and it doesnt work on a Mac)
    SO DONT USE QUICKFREEDOM ​

    Step Three)
    Plug your device into your computer and enter DFU Mode.

    Theres a link in my signature to an iClarified Video Tutorial on entering DFU.
    (please watch if youre unsure)​

    Step Four)
    Run redsn0w.

    *** MAC ***
    Open Terminal and type: cd (cd space)
    Drag the redsn0w folder into terminal and press ENTER.
    Type './redsn0w' and push enter

    *** WINDOWS ***
    Just open redsn0w and wait.

    Step Five)
    There is none.
    Your done
