    Hi,

    I've just started to try and jailbreak my 16 gig ipod touch. I'm using the lastest version of touchfree (the one with GUI). All seeminlgy goes well until I get to step 3 when it just sits there "verifying write" with no progress accumlating in the progress bar. I've followed all the instructions perfectly.

    Can anyone help?
    Also should i end the process applemobiledevicesupport.exe or something like that before jailbreaking?

    Thanks,
    orangehenry

    1) Force restore (search the forums if you odn't know how to do it)
    2) End all iTunes/iPod/Apple related applications.
    3) Use TouchFree; don't forget to visit jailbreak site

    Keep the USB plugged in at all times, and it wouldn't hurt to pet your iPod once every now and then so it doesn't go to sleep -- I don't know if this makes any difference, but I'd like it nice and bright

    Silly question, but did you make sure to go to the jailbreak site on your touch browser first? Also, yes, somewhere in the instructions it says to close all of the Itunes related applications using task manager. Good luck.
