I have tried to use quickfreedom on two different computers and neither of them work. One comes up with an error when installing quickfreedom (sorry can't remember which one but searched and couldn't find fix for it anyway on google) and the other seems to do it all right but when its finished i look and there isn't any cydia or installer on my ipod. I checked the box to install the installer in step 2 but it still didn't work. I used the download button on step 1 in quickfreedom so i had the right firmware and installed the libusb, although i did not create custom firmware in step 2 because the computer would get stuck when creating it (wouldn't progress any in the bar). I'm running windows xp sp3 with 3.4ghz and 2gb of ram so plenty of power. Ipod is 2g and has 2.2.1 firmware on it. I'm just looking for an answer to my quickfreedom problem or another tool altogether to use (not redsn0w because i don't want to buy OS 3.0). It needs to be unteathered and not too complicated if possible. Thanks a ton in advance. edit: Wait....i thought all the redsnow stuff made you download 3.0 update? Thanks for the quick answers though and not yelling at me for asking a question i'm sure people have already answered a hundred times lol. I'll try it out and update this again. edit2: Downloaded it, read notepads, extracted files, ran, and it says "unable to recognize specified IPSW". ?? edit3: Nevermind didn't realize redtool was a tethered jailbreak....what EXACTLY do i download and use to jailbreak my 2.2.1 ipod without buying the 3.0 software (no redsnow 0.8).
