    Hello all,

    I was reading here (http://toc2rta.com/?q=node/27) and it says i can reset my mac address by using terminal...

    Is that correct?

    I don't have my iPod jail broken..... and i don't want to until it's reliable.

    Reason being, the school blocked my mac address for my iPod Touch, on the network, and i need to get back on!

    Thanks,

    Cohen

    That's the correct command I believe. I remember it just being "ifconfig en0 <mac_addy>" but I could be mistaken.

    I have never tried this, but I think its worth a shot.

    the command is ifconfig en0 ether <mac address>.......it only works on the ipod touch first generation though....they changed something with the 2nd generation ipod touch to where you can no longer do it easily...
