    *NOTE: You still have to visit http://jailbreak.toc2rta.com on Safari, on the iPod, it will crash Safari (silent close) which means you have completed step 1.


    Mac:

    Download: http://code.google.com/p/ijailbreak/

    Manual Jailbreak, follow the instructions carefully to unlock and install Installer.app on your iPod Touch

    Download: http://www.slovix.com/touchfree/

    Another Automatic Jailbreak, open jailbreak.bat (by msbasher) and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Custom 'slide to unlock' text
    by ToCsIcK (MacRumors)

    To change the 'slide to unlock' download this file:
    Download: see attachment

    and search for "slide to unlock" replace it with anything up to 15 characters. Once that is done simply put it to /System/Libary/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/SpringBoard.strings.

    While your in the file, you can also change
    Sync in Progress
    Slide to cancel
    Slide to Power Off

    I used TextEdit for this.

    Custom carrier image
    by ToCsIcK (MacRumors)

    You can have your own PNG as your carrier, to do this change the carrier image at these 2 locations

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png
    for the image on the home screen

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png
    for the image when you are in an application

    The carrier png should be 20px high, and 60px wide recommended.

    For the original, you can download these here:

    How to change the icon layout

    For Windows there is an application to do this, it's called iOrder. (by RazerM)
    Download: http://www.ifans.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=137&d=1192494684

    Here is the original thread for more information: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2714

    Another Windows / Mac icon layout is here (by bindle)
    Download: http://www.foraveragejustice.com/re arrange icons.zip

    It changes the order to the following:
    Dock: Music, Videos, Safari, Mail
    SpringBoard: iTunes, Photos, YouTube, Calendar, Contacts, Clock, Calculator, Notes, Maps, Weather, Settings

    Follow the on screen tutorial found in the zip file.

    For more information check out the original link

    But, if you have Customize working, you can use that by tapping the 'Customize' icon on your iPod Touch and tap to 'rSBT (Icon Order)'. Tap the application you want to move, and drag it down to wherever you wish it to be.

    How to install and uninstall applications

    To install 3rd party applications one must have the Installer.app installed onto your iPod Touch. To start, tap the Installer icon and locate the file "Community Sources". This will allow a larger list of available applications.

    To uninstall simply tap the Installer.app and go to "Uninstall", locate the application you wish to uninstall, tap it and tap "Uninstall" in the top right hand corner.

    Installing iPhone applications
    by michaelchan0427

    Firstly download this file with all the contents you need
    Download: http://www.[PIRACY.mu].com/?d=GN9CKYJX

    This contains the following:
    GMM.framework
    Maps.app
    MobileMail.app
    MobileMailSettings.bundle
    MobilesNotes.app
    N45AP.plist
    Stocks.app
    Weather.app

    After you have unzipped them, place them onto your iPod Touch as follows:

    Weather.app, MobileMail.app, Stock.app, Maps.app, MobileNotes to /Applications/

    GMM.framework to /System/Library/Frameworks/

    N45AP.plist to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/

    MobileMailSettings.bundle to /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/

    To place these files onto your iPod Touch you will need a FTP client that supports SFTP, in this way, permissions could be applied easily without a fuss. For Mac use CyberDuck, remember to check the box "Apply permission recursively". For windows, try WS_FTP, it should work like CyberDuck.

    CyberDuck Download: http://cyberduck.ch/Cyberduck-2.8.dmg

    WS_FTP 30 day trial Download: http://www.ipswitch.com/_download/wsftppro.asp
    or
    Putty Download: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

    Reboot your iPod Touch after transferring all the files across.

    *IMPORTANT NOTE: change file permission to 755 via ftp or ssh. REMEMBER, all files in folders and subfolders have to be in permission 755 for the apps to run properly.

    If your iPhone applications crash then login to putty with
    Username: root
    Password: alpine
    and type the following:

    /bin/csh

    /bin/chmod -Rf a+x /Applications/*

    Similarly, using terminal for Mac, ssh into your iPod touch and type the above.

    Part 2: http://youtube.com/watch?v=EoR4BnoULAA
    Part 3: http://youtube.com/watch?v=SmJp2us7Dpw


    NOTE: When SFTPing into your iPod Touch, it will ask for a username and password. The username and the password are the same when you SSH to your iPod Touch
    username: root
    password: alpine

    Installing SummerBoard
    by therunnersays

    Using Installer.app on your iPod Touch, install SummerBoard 2.11. Restart your iPod Touch. When your iPod Touch boots back up, do not worry if your dock is stuck at the top of the screen.

    Download this file and extrat the files to a folder.
    Download: http://www.nullriver.com/~zigzag/SummerBoard.zip

    Open that folder you created and using the SFTP program, SSH into your iPod Touch, (you will need Wifi connection on your iPod Touch for this).

    For those that don't know how to find your IP go to the Settings > WiFi > Under your network name tap on the blue arrow > IP Address.
    Type that into your connection box.
    User: root
    Password: alpine


    Once you have SSH'd into your iPod Touch navigate to these folders, delete the file/folder below and replace it with the file you have just downloaded:

    /Library/Frameworks/ (SummerBoard.framework)
    /Applications/ (SMBPrefs.app)
    /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/ (Themes)
    /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ (com.apple.SpringBoard.plist)

    Once you have successfully replace these 4 files/folders set all permissions to 755

    Restart your iPod Touch and enjoy SummerBoard.


    NOTE: When SFTPing into your iPod Touch, it will ask for a username and password. The username and the password are the same when you SSH to your iPod Touch
    username: root
    password: alpine

    Installing SummerBoard themes
    by http://superfluousbanter.org/

    To install SummerBoard themes you can download them like an application via Installer.app, but if you have a theme of your own you can install them by SFTP.

    Connect to your iPod Touch via SFTP, and navigate into /Libary/SummerBoard/Themes where you'll see the directories of the four pre-installed themes. Once there upload your theme folder.
    The path should be /Libary/SummerBoard/Themes/<ThemeName>

    Now return to your iPhone’s home screen (press the “Home” button) and launch SMBPrefs, then press “Theme” and select “<ThemeName>” (the theme we just uploaded). Press the “Home” button once more to return to your home screen and see the new theme in place.

    Installing ROMs (NES)
    by mepman

    Connect to your iPod Touch via SSH and navigate to /var/root/Media. Create a folder here named "ROMs" and then another folder called "NES".

    Once you have done that go into the folder NES and drag your .nes files across.
