    I dont have wifi, but i got all my cydia apps when i was at my cousins house. I dont have aptbackup, but i have the .deb file on my comp and i think i can move it to my ipod and use Terminal Command to install it tho.

    So my questions are:

    1. What is the command for the .deb files?

    2. Does a redsn0w jailbreak make my ipod quicker?

    3. Cyder doesnt work for my ipod right now (i used Quick Freedom). Would it work if I used the redsn0w jailbreak?

    4. Is there a NOR jailbreak type of thing for redsn0w?

    5. Redsn0w 0.3 is a beta, right? So should I wait for the release version or just use redsn0w now, and rejailbreak when the final version comes out?

    Thanks,
    Fade


    (I use XP, iPod Touch 2.2.1 w/ Quick Freedom)

    1. In MobileTerminal:
    dpkg-deb -i <deb location>.deb

    2. It does not make it quicker, but it does take up less space than a NOR.

    3. I am unsure, sorry.

    4.) Why would you need it? RedSn0w pwns the already installed FW, no NOR restore required.

    Hope this helps

    3. Yes.
    4. No clue.
    5. Nah, it works fine right now. Use the one right now, but there is no need to rejailbreak if it works.

    ^^ The jailbreak itself does not make it run slower, but if you install a lot of apps, it will.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys. My main hope here is that Cyder would work then. That would be so great

    ^^Well yes, but it does not know where to look does it?
    My iPod didnt know where to look, so I had to put it in a folder and tell it where to look.
    I did that, and i tried it again with a diff. deb file and CD'd first

    quickpwn does not delete anything so just open it with your ipod in DFU mode and your done.

    Yes, that's recommended, but you don't always have to.
    It's just safer to do so. I would do a backup just to be safe though.
