    [WINDOWS] - Verbose boot iPod Touch 2G tutorial - No Restore!

    THIS IS NOT A MAC VS PC THREAD. PLEASE BRING YOUR ARGUMENTS TO ANOTHER THREAD
    Right-Click and click "View Image" for a bigger image.

    This is for 2G iPod touches running 3.0 (or 3.0.1) only! Do not attempt it with other hardware or software, and do not ask me how! I don't know!

    Step 1 - Make sure you have the current version of redsn0w, 0.8

    Step 2 - Get your unmodified, legal 3.0 ipsw from (Application Data folder, varies between Windows version)/Roaming(if you have vista or 7)/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/ It should be called "iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw", copy, not cut and paste it on your desktop

    Step 3 - Fire up redsn0w (remember to put in compatibility mode and run as admin, vista/7 users)

    Step 4 - Point redsn0w towards your not yet patched 3.0 ipsw on your desktop, and wait for it to verify it. WAIT! Do not click next!

    Keep redsn0w open and having identified the ipsw during the following steps, do not close it, and do not click next until I have told you to do so.

    Step 5 - Download H4CK!NT0SH's verbose iBoot here

    Some people have said that their file is "iBootn72apRELEASE.img3" instead of "iBoot.n72ap.RELEASE.img3" Simply rename it and you'll be fine.

    Step 6 - With redsn0w having already identified it, change the extension of your 3.0 ipsw to .zip (not required if you are using 7-zip), click yes, and open it up.

    Step 7 - Overwriting the original, stick the verbose iBoot file you just downloaded in (3.0 ipsw)/Firmware/all_flash/all_flash.n72ap.production/

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    Step 8 -Now change the extension from zip back to ipsw

    Step 9 -Go back to redsn0w, and continue jailbreaking your iPod as normal.

    You're done! Wait for redsn0w to finish it's business, and now you have glorious verbose boot!

    As with the mac version, this overwrites recovery mode. If you screwed something up and need to restore, you must use DFU or it will not work!

    No idea, but if you can find the correct verbose iBoot file for your model and firmware version, it should work.

    Did you take H4CK!NT0SH's verbose iBoot or did you make your own? Give credit where it is needed.

    Is it possible to just put in that one file and make it an IPSW so we don't have to restore our whole iPod? I mean, everything would be deleted but that file and all of the folders it is in.

    I used H4CK!NT0SH's, and I credited him... I even posted on his mac thread about this tutorial.
    EDIT: Actually, H4CK!NT0SH never said that he made it. He only posted a link to download it.
    You don't have to restore it. All you have to do it use redsn0w, but you have to patch iBoot after redsn0w verifies it and before it uploads it.
