    Hey, guys!!!!

    So as some of you know, I'm new to the forum, and I just wanted to make a nostalgic thread for you current/former iPod Touch 1st gen owners ^_^

    I was wondering....what was it like to jailbreak back on the older 1.1.X firmwares? Like, when ZiPhone was released?

    Was it exciting?
    Was it awesome?
    Was it fun?


    I really wanna know, because I never got to experiance the 2008 days

    ZiPHone? What about jailbreakme.com? Or the 54 step method (#?) to jailbreak. (I did that)

    1. Was exciting. When it got "bricked" (at the time they called it bricked) I freaked out. Got things sorted out.
    2. See above.
    3. Pretty fun.

    The 54 step jb method was an early 1.1.3 method, so I remember...



    Anyway, it was nice, Installer in its pre-RipDev days, no piracy, the app store hadn't begun yet... good times.

    Back when everyone called Cydia a crap rip-off of Installer.
    Downgrading to 1.1.2 in order to jailbreak 1.1.4

    Those were the days

    I can't remember which one it was, I thought it was 1.1.4 but I might be wrong, but you had to downgrade 2 full versions, jailbreak, then upgrade back.

    Probably after the 1.1.2 to 1.1.4 jailbreak.

    Ahh, I wish I had an iPod back in the 1.x days. That's when all of the cool stuff happened.

    Yeah it was awesome back then, but I like the new things a lot more

    like sbsettings, mobilesubsturate and all those nice extensions for it.

    But I see the same happening with cydia as with installer

    Timeline:

    Installer > became slower > Cydia
    Cydia > becoming slower (reloading screens) > Rock
    Rock > becoming slower??? > replacement

    It wasn't just installer became slower and was replaced by cydia, it's that when the new firmware came out, installer just wasn't ready. The people who had developed it on the 1.1.X firmwares had sold it, and they just hadn't made it ready in time. Cydia was, and filled the gap.
