    . Ive also tried using my dads girlfriends vista home premium laptop with cy00d jb tool but something went terribly wrong and her computer in in the trash now. literally. Ive exhausted all my options so now im turning to my fellow ipod touch fans for a ppc compiled redsn0w for tiger. I know its out there but 15 hours of googling still hasn't helped me find it.

    The only thing I can think of would be virtualpc. And if I were you, i'd wait for the full jailbreak. You rarely need to reboot the pod, but when you do, you're gonna be stuck unless you can get that vista computer to work.

    thanks for all the help. ive given up after a year of unsuccessful attempts to emulate windows. virtual pc is too much. we only own a copy of vista and my comp. isnt powerful enough to handle even xp. 256 meg of ram 1 GHz ppc processor.
