    Okay, so the compiled rslite, irecovery and redj0hnny don't work on PPC.

    I've managed to compile irecovery and redj0hnny on my Powerbook. I have libusb installed. When I run irecovery I get:


    iRecovery - Recovery Utility

    Thanks to pod2g and tom3q

    Got USB
    No iPhone/iPod found.​

    My iPod is definitely in DFU mode, iTunes recognizes it as such, but irecovery and redj0hnny don't see it.

    Has anyone managed to JB using a PPC?

    When you say PPC, do you mean pocketPC?

    I have compiled redj0hnny for PowerPC.. It runs, but still doesn't recognize the ipod. Same deal as irecovery.
    If a working pre-compiled version is coming soon though I guess I'll wait & see if that works.

    no

    will you pm when you release the ppc irecovery?

    I have been looking for it and obviously not finding it.

    wereier: are you sure your ipod is in DFU mode. if not you are probably trying to use a function that is only enabled for ipods in recovery mode.

    My ipod is most definitely in DFU mode.. Itunes recognizes it as such. In case iTunes is the problem, I've tried running irecovery/redj0hnny without iTunes etc.. I've tried various combinations of things and tried many, many times.

    So, again, anyone actually gotten the JB to work on a PPC? Or, is there something in irecovery incompatible with the old hardware somehow?

    using redj0hnny I can do everything but the patch(ibsspwn211.txt) on a ppc. might be able to do that too but I don't know how.
    Do you have libusb installed? I think that this is required as the version of redj0hnny that I am using includes this in it.

    Where did you get a compiled rslite? I can't find it.

    EDIT: I misread. I thought you meant there is a recompiled rslite for PPC. Nevermind.
