    Well I noticed that this part of the world is kinda dead on ITF so I thought I'll post a thread (hopefully not the last

    Has anyone successfully jailbroken their iPod Touch (1st Gen) on Linux? If so how and what resources did you use (tutorials, appz etc)

    Thanks

    Haven't tried it and i don't have linux anymore, but you can probably run quickpwn or whatever in wine.

    i dont think that wine could handle it really well, because of the usb drives and everything.

    But, my theory is that, if you can jailbreak the 2g in linux, the 1g has to be lots easier

    BTW, im on linux ( Mint ) right now

    Wine won't work with anything USB related. If someone gave me the source code for quickpwn, it is very possible that it could be compiled for Linux.

    ^Cool. I have never heard of that... I might have to mess with it a bit.

    You cannot restore to firmware generated by XPwn on Linux.

    Basically, until you can restore without the presence of MobileDevice/iTunes, you will not get a complete jailbreak on Linux.

    I've been informed of that as well.

    It seems like quite a complicated process.
