    well ok:
    1. its not 3.0 jailbreak
    2. no just restore and if it wont then dfu it:
    Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button

    Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button

    Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it. It should restart with a blank screen. Look at iTunes, and your device should be removed. Now lift the Standby button, while still holding onto the Home button.

    Step 4: Keep holding the Home button until the iPod reconnects on iTunes. When the device shows up in iTunes, that’s when you’ll need to lift up your button. If you wait any longer, it will go into Recovery Mode, and that’s not what you want. Your iPod should be blank.

    Step 5: Now iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recover Mode. You can now perform a manual restore on it.


    DFU Mode - The sound method (Windows ONLY! Alternative method)

    For those Windows user, turn up your speakers.

    You know when you connect something via USB, there's a sound that will ring? Use that sound as your cue.

    Here's a variation:

    Step 1: Connect to PC via the dock connector. Doesn't matter if iTunes is up or not.

    Step 2: Hold Home button

    Step 3: Hold Standby button

    Step 4: When "Slide to turn off" appear, ignore it.

    Step 5: Now you listen for the "USB out" sound. You should be able to tell if the device is disconnected from your PC. Now you can lift your Standby button. The screen should be blank.

    Step 6: Now you listen for the "USB in" sound. You should be able to tell if the device is connected to your PC. Now you can lift your Home button. The screen IS STILL BLANK.

    Step 7: If all goes well, your device should be blank and iTunes will launch by itself. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TURN ON YOUR DEVICE (well, you can't do that anyway). You can now perform a manual restore.

    You're now good to go!


    DFU Mode - The bubble method (Windows ONLY! Alternative method)

    Thanks to momott for this tip.

    Here's the breakdown of the method. All you need to do is watch your computer. And you don't have to launch iTunes at all.

    Update: I realised the bubble method don't work 100%. That's because, for the first time you entering DFU mode (on that computer), the bubble appears once. After that it does not appear anymore.

    Step 1: Connect your iPod Touch via the dock connector

    Step 2: Hold Home button

    Step 3: Hold Standby button. A "slide to off" appear, ignore it.

    Step 4: Your iPod should restart. Just keep holding the 2 buttons until you see in your windows, a bubble appear saying that your iPod Touch is in DFU mode.

    Ok, well you said you bought a new iPod Touch. It has to be 2G because thats the only one Apple sells now. Unless you bought it from like ebay or Amazon. Dont use ziphone, its only for 1.1.3 to 1.1.5(possibly earlier firmwares, idk.) If you have volume controls on the left side of your device then you have a 2G. What your gonna need to do is go to http://www.quickfreedom.com/ and download QuckFreedom. Once you have it downloaded, follow the steps. There will be a DFU helper inside QuickFreedom. Once you have your device in DFU mode, Click start pre jailbreak. Once that process has finished, open up itunes, then press the SHIFT button on your keyboard, and click on the RESTORE button at the same time. Set the little drop down menu to your Desktop, then double click on the firmware you created in QuickFreedom. Your iPod will begin restoring into a jailbroken state. The process could take up to 20 minutes or more, depending on how fast your computer is.

    If that doesnt help, then the problem is you probably didnt go into DFU mode corectly. Just ask me if ya need more help. Your iPod isnt dead, just used the wrong program (ziphone..)

    Ok then, you have a 1G? Do you wanna upgrade to the latest 2.2.1 firmware first, then jailbreak? Or just stay on 1.1.5 and jailbreak?
