    I was just wondering if you could do this..as i want to be able to just restore it and have wallpaper/multitasking and battery percentage already there. I have a iPod touch 2g and im curious as to if it would work so that i don't have to enable it everytime i restore. Thanks, all help is appreciated.

    You could use pwnage tool to include that 'features for iPod 2G' app when you restore to the custom ipsw.

    Oh its a new bootrom model, nah I don't think there'd be any way to do it. You can't create a custom firmware for that model, you have to use star and enable it manually.

    The pdf exploit is a userland exploit. Star was made to be quick, simple and easy to use. Creating a custom firmware and restoring to it requires an exploit at a lower level, which star is not. That's why pwnage tool has not been updated to jailbreak the new devices at recent firmwares, there isn't an exploit released which you'd be able to restore to a custom firmware for those devices.

    Ahhh I see. It's bad it's not as easy to make jailbreaks anymore. I miss QuickPwn.
