    I have som problems when using quickfreedom to jailbreak my ipod 2g (firmware 2.2.1).
    I've done all the process until switch the ipod into DFU mode. Then, I click pre-jailbreak button from quickfreedom. The ipod screen turn white as it should be. During pre-jailbreaking process, itunes show pop-up message with red cross "The ipod software update server could not be contacted. There's not enough memory available".

    After that, quickfreedom continues to run pre-jailbreak until complete (pop-up message shown). I turn back to itunes once again, and found that ipod has already been disconnected (the ipod screen still in white color). As a result, I can't press shift+restore to restore custom firmware. I try to close itunes and re-open it, but it doesn't work. My ipod still can't be recognized. (I've tried to use both itunes 8.0 and 8.1)

    So, I turned off the iPod and unplug USB cable. Then turn it on, plug in USB and switch it into DFU mode once again. In itunes window, I press shift+restore to restore custom firmware. Few minutes later, itunes show fail-to-restore message.

    I'm not sure what the problem is. My laptop is Core Duo processor with 3GB RAM. Available HD spaces more than 30GB. I've already connected to the internet. All anti-virus and spyware has been turned off.

    Do you have any idea how I can do to completely jailbreaking my ipod?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Try this:

    First restore to original firmware.
    Now kill itunes.exe, ituneshelper.exe, and ipodservice.exe if you have it.
    Jailbreak

    Note that iTunes will have to be opened manually when you connect your iPod when ituneshelper.exe is not running

    The Wonderful Windows Task Manager!

    Or with Command Prompt(Advanced Users Only!).

    Hi, I don't mean to hijack this thread but I'm having a similar issue with quickfreedom and so I've followed these steps, but when I go to restore to my custom firmware created by quickpown I get the error 13, any suggestions?

    Thank you for all advices. Now, I've done it completely.

    The problem actually comes from my laptop. I think it might be network connection problem. I'm also not sure how to fix this.

    I move to another PC and all the process passed smoothly. So now I'm fully jailed broken 5 5 5
