    Hi. First of all I assure you I have read How-to guides etc before posting this.

    My situation is this: I have 1G iPod touch running 2.1 5F137. I have switched computers and this iPod hasn't been connected to this new computer and in fact I don't even have iTunes on it. (Won't this mean that I'll have to start all over again as it will wipe my music if I connect it to iTunes? Not that I plan to, and this is off-topic). I run Vista.

    I have downloaded QuickPwn 2.2 from the official iPod Dev site and it can't open without crashing immediately. "QuickPwn has stopped working".

    So I hear that redsn0w can crack any version of iPod touches so I download it and when it loads it asks for my CURRENT firmware. So I download iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw from somewhere non-Apple (can't find it on Apple?) and load it into redsn0w and it says it is unable to recognize specified IPSW.

    So, can anyone help plz???

    Thnx in advance, morissons.

    I have removed all the links. I didn't know that felixbruns was pirated stuff - it said it claimed to get the stuff direct from Apple where it could.

    So sorry about that. Regarding my issue, can anyone help please?

    Run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP.

    I don't know what to do then...
    So you should update to 3.1.2. It's very stable and is one of the fastest jailbreaks ever!

    Instructions:
    1.Go to Blackra1n.com.
    2.Download Blackra1n.
    3.Open Blackra1n.
    4.Close iTunes if open.
    5.Click "make it ra1n".
    6.Wait for it to finish.
    7.Scroll to your last springboard page.
    8.Click on Blackra1n.
    9.Install Cydia/Rock.

    Does blackra1n only work for 3.1.2?

    Because when I click "make it rain" the program crashes.

    I don't have iTunes. Is it possible to upgrade without it?

    1.Blackra1n only runs on 3.1, 3.1.1, and 3.1.2.
    So yeah, it'll crash.
    2.Wait!!! You said you didn't have iTunes??? Try installing iTunes 8 (and not iTunes 9) and try QuickPWN again.

    If I install iTunes won't it wipe everything off the iPod (havent connected to this computer before)? And will simply installing it be enough to get quickpwn to work or will I need to make friends with the iPod?

    If quickpwn doesn't work even with iTunes, how do I update it to 3.1.2 so I can try blackra1n?
