    Hi Everyone,

    I bought Ipod touch 2g (2.2.1) 8GB two months back. My friend referred me to this site. I browsed through this website last nite and i mst say this site looks fantastic. However, My main reason in coming to this forum is I wanna jailbreak my ipod touch. It seems like 2g is not jailbreakable yet. If I have misunderstood, please correct me and tell the proper way of jailbreaking my ipod touch. Thanks a lott

    It is jailbreakable.
    Just download Redsn0w 0.8 and follow all directions it tells you.

    Use redsn0w 0.3 to jailbreak 2.2.1.
    Better yet, upgrade to 3.0 and use redsn0w 0.9.

    If you have an iPod touch 2G, any version of QuickPwn will not work.
    QuickPwn is only for the 1st generation iPod touch.

    With the iPod touch 2G running 2.2.1 firmware, you have multiple options, you can:

    1) Jailbreak with redsn0w 0.3 (the fastest way)
    2) Jailbreak with QuickFreedom (takes long but very user-friendly)
    3) Update to the 3.0 firmware, and then do a jailbreak with redsn0w 0.8

    Here are some download links. (Make sure to read the readme with redsn0w)

    redsn0w 0.3 - http://www.downloadtaxi.com/d/1252088975
    redsn0w 0.8 - http://www.downloadtaxi.com/d/1252089094
