    i read that the new version of leopard that came out a while ago (10.5.6 i believe) doesn't allow DFU mode for your ipod, but the quickpwn process requires it to go into dfu mode rite??

    so if you can't go into dfu mode, then you'll like screw up your ipod?!?

    so is this true, or whats up with it.

    10.5.6 doesn't recognize iPods/iPhones in DFU mode.
    There was a fix, but it apparently screws up your computer.

    And yes, QuickPwn requires DFU mode.

    Yeah. Don't jailbreak with 10.5.6.
    And yes again, only 10.5.6 doesn't recognize DFU'd iPods/iPhones.

    i hope the next version of quickpwn/pwnage gets around this
    i was disappointed to find out i had to update to 10.5.6 (as i wasn't updating just for this reason) in order to install ilife and iwork '09
    at the moment, seems like i'm screwed if i have to restore my ipod for w/e reason
    lol

    You don't have to do that. You can change the SystemVersion.plist located in /System/Library/CoreServices. It's like the iPod, but you just change it as 10.5.6. I actually downgraded via my Time Machine back-up before I updated when I found out 10.5.6 couldn't DFU your iPod. I also downgraded because they got rid of the battery drop down menu with all the presets like "Better battery life, normal and high performance"
