    Hey guys. I am wondering on how I can JB my friends iPod.

    When I JBed mine on 3.0 I had to restore to a backup file on my comp.

    But since I cant backup someone elses ipod on my computer, I cant restore to their backup.

    So can someone please explain to me with detail on how I can do this?

    I'm JBing 3.0 firmware

    My friend has 2.2.1

    Just close iTunes when it asks to restore from backup, then when you give it back to your friend there iTunes will ask them.

    If your friend still has all the music pictures videos etc from his iPod on his computer then you can JB without hastle..
    If you want to go the backup way:
    -Tell your friend to make a backup on his computer
    -If you have a 3.0 Firmware on your computer do your friend the favor and upgrade his iPod to 3.0 (The firmware can be found here: USERNAME/AppData/Roaming/AppleComputer/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore
    -If you want to jump that and go directly to Jailbreaking the 2.2.1 go here http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115155 (Tutorial to JB 2.2.1)
    After you jailbreak and connect the iPod to your computer you should get a screen (on the iPod page) which gives you 2 options: Restore from a backup or Add that iPod as a new one. Just dont do anything and when your friend connects it to his computer make him restore it from backup
