    okay i know that you cant have an ipod on both a mac and windows at the same time but i was wondering my friend has a mac but i have windows and i was wondering if i jailbroke for him on my windows computer then could he still get music from his mac computer and still use his mac to transfer videos and music back to his touch or would he have to jailbreak on his mac to be able to get music from his mac?

    it should work bc the files you upload to the ipoT are not dependant on the computer you have. i havent seen 2 downloads for summerboard, a mac summerboard and a windows summerboard.

    not promising your computer wont expload, but using common sense i say that it will work.

    i did a jailbreak and installed iphone apps for a mac based ipod using my windows notebook, all went well until when I plugged the ipod in the mac, it detected the ipod as a digicam and itunes couldnt detect it, i just did a full restore on my friends Touch, where did I go wrong?

    as the iPod touch is using flash memory you shouldn't have to restore it, like the "old" HD ones.

    I've tested on both mac and PC my iPod touch and it can transfer music perfectly no matter what OS I'm using.

    and about the digicam, I had that "problem" too, I just updated iTunes and suddenly it worked.
