    Hello guys, i've an ipod touch first generation version 3.1.3 (7E18) and model MA623LL. I saw a video to jailbreak the ipod touch from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2 and i did it. But after i jailbrake it had not jailbroken. I mean i tried adding games and applications through itunes but did not work. It gave me an error. I used redsnow 0.9.4 and also iPod1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore ipa file to jailbreak it. But did not seem to work. After doing so i checked the ipod version in both itunes and ipod touch both read 3.1.3. So how to go about it? how to get it jailbroken? please guys any suggestion would be helpfull. Thanks in advance.

    Spiritjb.com is a userland jailbreak if you don't mind no boot logos or verbose boot.

    Your model though, I would use redsn0w 0.9.4 with 3.1.3 not 3.1.2

    Yours is pwned for life, so there is no need to downgrade to 3.1.2 at all.

    The restore file is not an IPA.

    If it is an IPA then it is not the correct file, it is an IPSW.

    Hey thanks for the reply. If u say its pwned how do i know? cos when i see in the settings it says 3.1.3 and also in the itunes it reads the same.And also if i try to install any applications in itunes it throws and error. SO wat to do? And also how to install applications downloaded in my pc? is ther any other procedure that i can follow to jailbreak? or the one which i've done is correct? thx..

    I would much rather use redsnow than spirit, redsnow is a much much more stable jailbreak for 1g plus you can change boot logo and have verbose boot.

    Hey thx for your reply. I used redsnow itself to jailbreak and it didnt seem to work. I mean i cant install applications, nor can i see the jailbroken version i.e. 3.1.2 in my ipod or itunes. So what should i do?
