    thanks merry xmas

    *****************So it looks like i needed to update my java console, from java.com I just rewiped my xp toshiba laptop a couple weeks ago and it installs it with the mfg software, but i guess it must be an old version (laptop is less than 1.5 yrs old).
    but I tried 90000 things and i noticed the error was something about java so i just updated it , well installed the new version from java.com and it worked like a charm, now i have 1.1.2 with jb. I was just about to give up and use 1.1.1 bc ive been trying to for like 7 hrs now. You guys might want to have a new troubleshooting or FAQ question , theres gonna be a lot of ppl around here bc of xmas gifts., bc i discovered a couple glitches you never mentioned with my jailbreaking process... although props, it was very clear and concise, all the other sites basically copied your info.. so wtg on that and thanks a lot. And thanks for the people who at least tried to help even if they couldnt.
    BTW zink, ending the processes didnt matter in fact i still had itunes open, yeh i didnt even realize that but it worked. Who ever wrote the instructions in the jb file download , it was kind of hard to understand. Ill consider a new version /re-edit only for TOUCHES if i have time in the next couple weeks.

    when you say disconnect do you mean eject? and if you did unplug it and replug your ipod and go to task manager END ONLY THESE 2: iTunes.exe and iTunesHelper.exe if you delete applemobiledevice your ipod wont be detected

    THANKS for the effort to help zink..*deleted questions*
    ----
    ok so i spent like 30 minutes typing out some glitches and tips i found out about doing this, and then it got deleted kuz my FREAKEN TOSHIBA LAPTOP shortcut keys decided to make it go back 10 pages! So anyway here is a couple tips which i dont know if any or all of these prevented it from working, but now im broken out of jail on 1.1.2

    PREP- I read on another forum or maybe another thread, when u download JAILBREAK dont use a folder with spaces or it wont work when you try to install it in the last step - so i didnt but i noticed that my windows login had a space, and the FOLDER was on my desktop, so it read"C:\docsettings\blahblah\joe wgh\touchfiles" or something. It wouldnt load either, so i tried changing my username to joewgh without spaces and it worked. Its just probably a code glitch, it cant handle spaces.
    You might want to also disable your WEP/WPA if you use one to connect with your touch during this process, it gets annoying retyping in the code, since its wiped when you revert.

    RESTORING TO
    1.1.1 from 1.1.2- the a109a v 1.1.1 file did not work for me only iPhone1,1_1.1.1_3A110a_Restore would work properly, i saw another thread with a kid with 109a which was having problems also , which i guess is slightly different.

    I got jailbreak to work in 1.1.1 using the link in safari-but after u install oktoprep dont do anything to the phone, like install other apps, or anything just hook it up and update that thing!

    Then i updated, in itunes to 1.1.2 and I had problems getting it to work. Turns out i needed to go to java.com and get the new version, worked like a charm.

    ALSO its a GREAT IDEA when you setup or restore to 1.1.1 you click on the options NOT TO OPEN ITUNES when you connect your touch, this makes it SO much easier. Its on the lower section, after if gives you the option to setup as a new ipod, also do not sync auto... bad, since your justing using it to download oktoprep

    ALSO when Itunes was "updating" back to 1.1.1 my usb mouse was going crazy disconnected and reconnecting the same time ipod was, so on the final successful install, i unplugged all external USB devices except my TOUCH, dont know if this helped but is worth a try if your stuck.

    The instruction file in the JailBreak rar file was really confusing but it wasnt brain surgery and this site helped also. (I am a writer and can do technical writing, i would for free if you write me a letter saying it was not for profit) Most tutorials were copied from here i noticed, so good work guys! and i hope that feedback helps, i have a new itouch bought today the one with john lennon on the box.... now when can we get a PORNOTUBE app? plzzz
