    What you need to do if Oktoprep isn't in Installer.

    First thing you want to do is make sure you have Community Sources installed. the way you can get community sources is by:
    1. Go into Installer
    2. Go to Install (at the bottom)
    3. Go under Sources
    4. Install Community Sources

    Now it should be in there if it's still not coming up then follow these steps:
    1. Go into Installer
    2. Go to Sources (at the bottom)
    3. Click edit (at the top right)
    4. Click add (at the top left)
    5. Now type repo.sc/ipodtouchesrule
    6. Click ok
    7. Installer should refresh now you will have Oktoprep.

    Pm me if something isn't in installer and it should be i'll add it to my repo.

    Actually. it doesnt. Many people have been having problems when upgrading there 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 and discovering that OkToPrep is not present.

    Just use this method to be absolutely sure, trust me, you dont want to go through the tedious process of downgrading and restoring again.

    Yes it is.

    Go to /private/var/root/Media and click on the AppSnapp.log file

    Doubt it would be on any of the 1.1.4 Touches since they don't start from 1.1.1

    Here is what the log says after it is done downloading the file.

    I haven't needed to install any Oktoprep. I did the iJailbreak 1.1.4 from regular 1.1.4. Now that 1.1.4 is a stable hard jailbreak without bugs I think the older firmwares and jailbreaks are pretty much outdated. Everything is so much smoother on the new firmware. And most importantly, the sound quality is better.

    Anyway, I don't know what Oktoprep is supposed to do, but I haven't needed it yet. So people may not have any need for it after all.

    Well some people use soft upgrades to jailbreak 1.1.4 and some people just want to stay at 1.1.2. And Oktoprep is an application in which you need to jailbreak 1.1.2.

    Look in my signature to learn how to jailbreak 1.1.2.

    Yes, it's great that you offer people this guide!

    What I mean is that I myself was confused for a while since I couldn't figure out how and when to use it. It turned out that I didn't need it even though there were guides giving me that impression. So people may not know that it isn't needed in all cases.
