    I want to enable multitasking on my iPod Touch 2G, which involves changing a variable in the plist files. As far as I know, you need to use VFDecrypt to access these files, but I don't really know how exactly to use it, nor whether or not the keys provided for the 4.0 beta will work for this.
    If anyone has any more knowledge about VFDecrypt and how to use it (I'm on a Mac, but posting how-to guides for Windows users will help too), please either make a thread and post the link here or just post it in this thread as a response. Also, I'm sure a brief description of how to actually change the variable would be helpful to some users too.
    PS: if anyone has an alternative way to access the plist files without using VFDecrypt - preferably one that works on the Mac

    i WOULDN"T DO THAT! THere is normally a reason companys do things like that it could make all apps close and not work and second it WILL make your iPod super slow must likely or not work period

    Not true... Gizmodo has confirmed that the iPod Touch 2G and iPhone 3G hardware fully support multitasking, and that the only reason they didn't unlock it is because it would require some knowledge of the fact that the device can only handle so much. This would frustrate almost all users, because the few of us who understand how much of a load we can put on a device is a lot less than the amount who don't.

    I'm trying to do the same as you, also have a mac and a ipt2g. Also cant mount .dmg i think the key is wrong because if i mount it without the space it finisches but the dmg is corrupt, if i try it with the space it just gives me an error. so im assuming we have to wait till a proper key gets found... im not sure if you need JB to restore the custom firmware

    You don't, you just need to hold alt or option (Shift if you are on a PC) while you click "restore" and it will ask what file you want to use.

    Herp de derp you need to be jailbroken to upload custom firmwares. Otherwise, the code wouldn't be signed when it's being run.

    Use the the 24k exploit.
