    Ok, so I recently bought an 8gig iPod Touch and I want it jailbroken... However, the iPod is one of the "3G" models, with the serial starting with MC. So even though it's technically not a 3G iPod (as only the 32g and 64g are), can it still be jailbroken? I've done some research on this and can't really find a conclusive answer.

    BTW, I'm using a iBook G4.

    That says that Blackra1n can only be used with the 2G iPods... and "By the way, for iPod touch 3G, the jailbreak is TETHERED. Not full jailbreak. Also the tethered jailbreak only works on iPod touch 3G 32GB and 64GB models. The updated/new 3G/2.5G iPod touch 8GB cannot be jailbroken at this point."

    Yeah.... I just attempted to jailbreak using that, and it completely screwed up. My iPod went into recovery mode. I'm restoring now and hoping I didn't lose all my app data. AAHRGH.
