    Hi all,

    I am very new to jailbreaking and things like that so I was reading its turorial and things but I got a first generation ipod touch so not the one with the speaker. Do I have to jailbreak this on the same way as the tutorial about 2G?

    Greetings from Abboe

    I got firmware 2.2.1
    I'v been reading a turorial:

    How to jailbreak
    1) Put the QuickPwn tool onto your desktop.
    2) Open the QuickPwn tool, plug in your iPod and press the arrow to advance.
    3) Let this screen load because it may take sometime, you also may need to browse to where your iPod update (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates)
    4) Leave the Ticks next to “Cydia” and “Installer” (If you want to change your start up logo from an apple to a pineapple also tick “replace boot logos” but it will slow down the start up times.)
    5) Click the arrow twice to pass through the next two screens.
    6) Follow the instructions on the screen from here and wait for the iPod to reboot, don’t worry if this takes ages.

    Is this all to jailbreak? just download quickpwn and do the following steps?

    No need, Quickpwn will guide you through, it too easy, just make sure you select Cydia and others if you wish.

    You need to install the Microsoft .NET framework before you can use Quickpwn. The error message is because you don't have it. Here's the link:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...CB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5&displaylang=en

    just download and launch the installer, restart the comp, and start quickpwn.
    Any problems jailbreaking: just go into DFU mode (tutorials for this are everywhere and restore with itunes.

    Now I have another problem.
    I need to locate my firmware somewhere on my computer, the guide says:
    (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates)

    But I don't have that location... :/

    PS: I did download my firmware on the Quickpwn site 2.2.1 first generation ipod touch but the file I need isnt in that winrar either I guess.

    Put the firmware on your desktop. and browse from quickpwn to your desktop.
    if the file ends with .rar change to .ipsw
