    Hey,

    I have just downloaded the redsn0w lite tool 1 and the Iron Man Theme and iPhone Browser. I'm now downloading the ipsw that was linked on the red sn0w lite tool page.

    I got a few questions?

    1. Do I need anything else?

    2. How do I JB with the red sn0w lite tool 1?

    3. How do I install the Iron Man Theme?

    4. Can I still sync with iTunes?

    5. Where can I get iBoobs?

    6. What other things can I do with a JB?

    THanks for all help.. Only night I can do this so please help.. I walk 45 mins in snow storm for bad wifi just to get this downloaded. I in cold.

    You can sync with itunes, but make sure create as new ipod. The iron man theme can be downloaded from Cydia. You will need libusb, installed, but make sure you are not using vista, because it will disable your usb drive, and possibly your mouse/keyboard.

    I am using Vista. Have no other computer. How do I get libusb working on Vista?

    Right click LibUSB installer > Properties > Compatibility Tab > Check off 'Run this application in compatibility with' (Windows XP (Service Pack 2) is the default selection) > Apply/OK. Right click again, 'Run as administrator'. Please use the search on top. This has been answered several times (about the 4th or 5th time for me anyway...)

    if you don't know anything about jailbreaking... With a 2G i highly advise you don't... you could really screw something up.

    To use Cydia (& therefore really get any real benefit out of the jailbreak) you're going to need WiFi...

    As andrewpiro said... For the 2G if you really dont know about jailbreaking, i suggest you don't do it. Take a look at the other posts on here & ask yourself if you're willing to deal with the tethered JailBreak, etc.

    And remember your ipod touch may seem brick at times, but it really isn't. Most likely you need to go into dfu mode. Trust me, there are plenty of threads about bricks, just look at them and don't post a new one.

    But can't I download off the cmoputer and transfer to my iPod Touch and install through Cydia on the iPod touch on a folder or something? I can download anything on my laptop.. Just not my iPod Touch directly.

    Oh and I have iPhoneBrowser which is supposed to let me go through it like SSH does, can I just use that? And What if I don't want the jail-break, how do I reverse it?

    There are a few apps that can be installed through SSH (yes, you can use iphone browser as a replacement) however apps like WinterBoard need to be installed through Cydia. Your best bet will be to do the initial setup of your iPod. Really without WiFi this is prolly gonna hurt more than help. Just remember it's tethered. If you want to remove the jailbreak, just restore in iTunes
