    Finally got reboot to work on my ibook g4 running tiger via ppc.


    so what to do:

    - install libusb (dont know if its required but i think so)
    - download the new 101 redsnow from the official site (here)
    - then download hitboot for getting the fw files without pwnage tool
    - extract all archives

    open the "HitBoot (CMD+ redj0hnny," folder, then rename the following files:
    - iBoot221.img3 to iBoot221pwn.img3
    - iBSS221.dfu to iBSS221pwn.dfu
    dont rename iBSS211.dfu !!!

    - copy iBSS221pwn.dfu, iBSS211.dfu and iBoot221pwn.img3 from the "HitBoot (CMD+ redj0hnny," folder into the "rslite" folder

    put your ipod into DFU mode:
    Code:
    hold power and home buttons for 10 seconds
    release power  button, keep holding home button  for 7 seconds
    finally open Terminal and type in the following commands:

    your ipod should reboot now and you can disconnect it from your mac

    how to put your ipod into dfu mode:
    hold power and home buttons for 10 seconds
    release power button, keep holding home button for 7 seconds

    credits go to:
    veryniceipod for his tut
    redj0hnny and hitman for the pack with the firmware files in this tut
    the dev team for redsnow!!!

    ps: sorry for my bad english.. im from germany
    ps2: don't ask me for a jailbreak on ppc. 1st i think everyone has the possibility to work on windows or an intel mac for one time and 2nd im not a coder

    Should do try it and find out.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    It doesn't work I still get the Bad CPU type in executable when i type ./rslite

    EDIT:
    I got it to work but with a different rslite (http://iphwn.org/rslite101u.zip) just download this file instead of the one linked above and do everything else the same

    sam8392's edit seems right. Our original rslite wasn't universal, but rslite101u.zip is.

    well I downloaded this boot launcher app a bit ago (I don't know who made it so I can't give credit) and I've put the PPC rslite and the renamed files in the app, so all you have to is open up the app and put you ipod in DFU mode click on 1-click boot and it'll boot up you ipod

    Download app

    Please note:
    - I have not made this app and I can't found out who did!
