    What's up all! I'm new here, and came across this forum by pure luck, and I may be glad that I found it.

    My first question is, if anyone has a tutorial, guide, step-by-step etc. on how to jailbreak a 2G (8gb) Touch? That would be very helpful and awesome whoever does

    My second question is, what are the advantageous and disadvantageous consequences when/if I jailbreak?
    Also, I don't have Wifi [Internet] for my Touch, as I use a cable internet at home. At school we have wireless, but it has a password which I don't want to get in trouble for using as a lot people know the password for it anyway.
    Although...I found these Links on this Forum:

    Install cydia apps without ANY internet connection (without Wifi / 3G / GPRS / EDGE) : http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=170138 (Courtesy of a_d_r_y_y)

    [HOW TO] Internet VIA USB [TUTORIAL]: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=202656 (Courtesy of Ruamrudee)

    Both threads were made in 2009, so is there a chance that they will still work? I have found 2 YouTube videos, but will not post them as it may breach the forum rules.

    Sorry for the daunting thread with many questions, and I really hope I am not breaking the rules with a question like this. If it is, a Mod/Admin can delete my thread straight away.

    Yeah sorry I didn't see that.

    You can follow this guide

    http://www.redmondpie.com/sn0wbreeze-ios-4.1-jailbreak-iphone-3gs-ipod-touch-windows/

    There are also a few other guides out there but this is the easiest one I found.
    Also you have to make sure your device is a MC model. You can find this out by going in to your about screen and checking your serial number and if your first 2 letters are MC you cant jailbreak with sn0wbreeze.

    You're talking about the thing on iTunes on the device tab where it says your serial number on the 'summary' tab? My first 2 are "9E" Good enough, or wrong thing?

    I am using the http://www.redmondpie.com/sn0wbreeze-ios-4.1-jailbreak-iphone-3gs-ipod-touch-windows/ website and following it, but in the instructions it says:

    "Step 5: Sn0wbreeze will now ask you to browse for your .ipsw file. Select the correct iOS 4.1 firmware .ipsw file by clicking the “Browse” button. Sn0wbreeze will verify the selected file and then will present you with following screen."

    I can't seem to find any .ipsw file whatsoever...Any help anyone?
