An ULTIMATE FACT THREAD I was aspiring to make an ultimate fact thread but now I’m doing it First I’m going to start out with solely basic stuff Where should I buy an Itouch; Online or at a Store Well most of the time it’s a preference thing but here a breakdown between buying something online or at a tangible store Online The facts about online shopping *No paper only plastic (most of the time) *You will most of the time have to pay for shipping *To some people it gets addictive *Unless you pay extra for express or next day shipping you will have to wait 5-6 BUSINESS DAYS (count the days except Saturday and Sunday) Pros: 1. No taxes 2. Sometime you can find better deals online. 3. Doing research on your own time and buying it on your own time 4.No real buying obligation(like when you walk into a store and say I’m going to buy this because I came all the way here for it ) [ New question I have my Itouch now I need ITunes where can I get that Right here -----> http://filehippo.com/download/fb7847...d85e/download/ Neat I’ve been using my Itouch for a couple weeks now but it seems like it can be so much more That’s the glory of jailbreaking an Iphone/Itouch ???? Ok THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BIGGEST LOWDOWN ON JAILBREAKING EVER First before I say anything I’m going to give you EVERY FIRMWARE EVER IPod touch is under Iphone/Itouch<----- Click it Ok that very nice but what are those Heh we'll get to that later Now we are going to discuss the two or three "cliques" <-- (Stolen from Skylar [Ill miss your apps Skylar]) Zibri and his blog: Zibri is credited for making Ziphone which Iphone users couldn’t complain about I mean I’ve done it my self and took about 10 min. But here’s the downside to Ziphone even though he made a post saying that it works with an I touch. Even though he stated that Ziphone was never intended for the Itouch in the video he posted it "works" for the 8gig if you try on a 16gig or a 32gig you will get the infamous "BSDroot: major2 minor0 " error which you will have to restore your IPod from there. And since it wasn’t intended for the Itouch some apps "don’t work" its not that they don’t work its just that the app are getting saved in the /media file instead of the /library so some people complain about no sound on IAno or TTR doesn’t let me download from "new tracks' or My books aren’t showing up or "my iphyics levels aren’t coming up" I’m not going to go into personal thoughts or comments because I want this to be a completely un biased thread The DEVteam: Even though some hate them I wouldn’t know where we'd be without them they (I think) have been around the longest I’m pretty sure. Not much to say because I really don’t know much about them I think there’s one more just cant remember. Since now the 1.1.4 upgrade and people are in a mad dash to jailbreak 1.1.4 even though Ziphone2.3 wasn’t made for 1.1.4 and the DEVteam wants to come out with another Soft Upgrade I think or you can wait for a real jail break or wait on this Guy--------->http://ijailbreak.com/ WHO IS FIANALLY OFFERING ITOUCH SUPPORT for his next version which I will recommend because It will actually be fully compatible with Itouch and not just 8gig I hope Ultimately It’s your decision I mean some people are still on 1.1.1 and proud of it. First it depends on how you want to jailbreak. If you have an 8gig and want to jailbreak it and use 1.1.3 or 1.1.4<.< using Ziphone be my guest you can find him at ziphone.org Or do you want to be on a Jailbroken 1.1.1 this is what you do (I’m assuming your on a higher version than that) Download the 1.1.1 firmware I posted above Save it to someplace memorable on your desktop Plug in your iPod to ITunes Click on the IPod Icon on the side bar when you’re on ITunes Make sure on the page that says "Check for updates" and "Restore" are *IMPORTANT PART* Hover mouse over "updates" now this is what you do hold down the shift button, (option on Mac correct me if I’m wrong) and click updates Now find the firmware you downloaded and click ok Wait for restore to finish On your Itouch go to Jailbreakme.com Click (Touch???) install App snap Viola now you’re on Jailbroken 1.1.1 Hey can I get those Iphone apps on here too Actually YES you can Go into installer Click sources along he bottom Click edit Click "add" Now type in http://www.ipodtouchmaster.com/files/repo.xml Click ok then let it refresh then go to the install tab and install those apps! What apps should I get? Well I think the most common and used one are TTR, WeDict, Iphyics, SummerBoard, Customize, SSH (discussed later), NES PSX GBA SNES emulators, and a new one is IAno, and books is a good one if you like to read. Wait I’ve changed my mind I want to go to a Jailbroken 1.1.2 Ok, ok Just make sure you’re on a Jailbroken 1.1.1 First download Oktoprep from installer Then download the 1.1.2 firmware I posted above Then download the 1.1.2 jailbreak http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/1.1.2-jailbreak.zip Save all of it to your desktop to a place you can remember Plug IPod into iTunes Go to the update and shift+click (for Macs its Option+Click) it find your 1.1.2 firmware Wait Then when it’s done this is what you do Open the 1.1.2 jailbreak file Kill all ITunes processes by opening up the task manager go to processes and kill everything iPod or iTunes related (for safety) Run jailbreak You’re done Wait before your done I wanna jailbreak 1.1.3 for kicks Rubs head. Ok first we need to talk THERE ARE NUMEROUS WAYS TO JAILBREAK! 1.1.3 and (I’m not sure if I’m going to talk about the soft upgrade though) Ijailbreak: it’s an installer based jailbreak means No comp (It will make you or break you lol) JBTime: approx: 45min Make sure your running on a JB 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 Add this source ijailbreak.com/repo.plist Go under Ijailbreak and choose the right one for you if you on 1.1.1 choose the 1.1.1->1.1.3 if your on 1.1.2 choose the 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 Wait go watch TV or something *IMPERITIVE MAKE SURE YOUR IPOD HAS A FULL OR GOOD ENOUGH CHARGE TO BE ON FOR 45 MIN STRIGHT Or you can use Ziphone straight on an unjailbroken 1.1.3 1. Download Ziphone 2. Extract it somewhere 3. Put IPod in restore mode (turn iPod off [for me to restore I have to have it connected to my comp for some reason] hold top and home button for 30 sec till the "connect to ITunes screen pops up" 4. Run Ziphone GUI click Jailbreak 5. Wait 6. Done WAIT WHAT ABOUT 1.1.4 well I recommend waiting at least 3 more days for the new Ziphone or what ill be using the new Ijailbreak which actually has Itouch support You can do it the way everyone else is currently or you can wait your choice DATE: 2/27/08 Jailbreaking 1.1.4 Just update to 1.1.4 through iTunes Repeat steps 1-6 above Done DATE 3/1/08 You can wait for Zibri's Zitouch pr you can use Arix's Ijailbreak.com __________________________________________________ ________________________ Complete Guide on SSH Well what is SSH and why do I need it First a couple words from Wikipedia Quote: Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged over a secure channel between two computers (in this case you’re IpoT/Iphone. Encryption provides confidentiality and integrity of data. SSH uses public-key cryptography to authenticate the remote computer and allow the remote computer to authenticate the user, if necessary. Ok now that that’s done lets go to the needs of SSH'ing *If you want to use ROMs this is a must *can be used to correct small app errors *now you can access the files in your Touch/Phone *and various other things such as installing apps directly into touch Ok how do I use SSH This will be fun ***** 1. Go to installer and if you haven’t install BSDsubsystem I think it will tell you to do that first any way 2. Install OpenSSH #download and installhttp://winscp.net/download/winscp406setup.exe]this 4. When that’s done connect to wifi using your Touch/Phone Then press that blue arrow describing the wifi your connected to then look at its ip address 5. Open up SSH then go to host name 6. Type in the IPaddres you’re connected under hostname 7. under user name type in "root" 8. under password type in "Alpine" 9. Wait 10. You’re done __________________________________________________________________________ I will update this!
