    Anyway... I managed to jailbreak my iPod Touch 2.2.1 after about 6 hours today. I *jizzed in my pants* when I saw the Cydia app on my Touch... Here's how I did it...

    CREDIT GOES TO cyw00d... :clap:

    Info Site is here...

    http://alltechrelated.co.uk/2009/02...uch-2nd-gen-application-for-windows-released/

    All information should be there. I tried the redsn0w method 0_1 first... and it failed.

    You are, however, required to download the 2.2.1 firmware, so here is a link...

    http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

    Select the appropriate... Bottom of second drop-down menu. Should be 5H11a

    Download that into the cyw00d folder you downloaded earlier. Then run it, and BAM. Instant (More like an hour-long, nail-biting wait) Jailbreak.

    Any questions just ask... I must have hit every problem possible b4 it worked.

    ALSO!!!!

    There is no risk of "BRICKING" your iTouch. You can always restore in DFU mode. Once again... "This is completely safe."

    Have fun!

    EDIT: I failed to mention that this is a "tethered" jailbreak. This will work, however everytime you wish to re-boot your iTouch you will need to re-enter DFU mode and re-run step 7. So yes, you WILL need to re-connect to your computer (Not nessecarily to iTunes) to boot your iTouch. So Download this...

    http://host-a.net/deeboiz/Redsn0w Booter. v1.2.zip

    This is a 5-second bootloader that requires you to put your Touch in DFU Mode and then press a buttion. Nothing could be easier than that.

    Good guide, but please take down your firmware link. It is illegal for the forums and the law.

    james_knippa - Give credits to cyw00d for the GUI in the first post.

    Not your fault. Shouldn't be in this section to begin with.
