Hey guys, I got an iPod Touch awhile ago and just recently found out about Jailbreaking.

What Jailbreaking is: Basically modifying your iPod Touch or iPhone to be able to do a lot of amazing things, such as play games, customize the background, even control your computer! Did I mention it's free?

There's a lot of amazing stuff you can do with it, here have a look at some pictures of my iPod Touch home screen.

And trust me, that's just a taste of the apps on there.

If any of you have an iPod Touch or an iPhone and don't have it Jailbroken, you're missing out. The potential of it is amazing.

If you guys are interested I'll be willing to help you out.

There's a guy on youtube by the name of iPodTouchMaster who has posted a bunch of tutorial videos. That should give you a good head start.

Enjoy.

Nice, I didn't know they got Summerboard working, it's been a few weeks since I checked. I'm going to get that on mine right now. What sources do you use for installer? I don't think I've ever seen Bejeweled in any of the ones I have, but same think like Summerboard, I haven't checked anything in a few weeks.

Yep, they did get SummerBoard working, along with Customize. Bejeweled is actually iZoo from the iPod Touch Fans repo, I just put a new icon on it, used the bejeweled theme, and renamed it.

Pain in the ass. I have to upgrade my touch to 1.1.2 JB to get the 1.1.3 JB :cry:

There any easy way to upgrade to 1.1.3 JB w/o having to upgrade to 1.1.2 JB?

Got 1.1.3 JB, took about 2 hours or so doing it from the ipodtouchmaster youtube vids.

if you have an 8 gb touch look into ZiPhone 2.1 that just came out.

For everyone else looking for answers to your touch/phone questions, look at http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/


That doesnt work with touches afaik.

iJailbreakmobile will work with 1.1.1, it's based off of the NateTrue method though.

Very nice, I'm working on getting the Vista Maximus theme on mine, I'll post screenshots when I'm done.

Congrats, yeah 1.1.3 takes a few steps to jailbreak. I actually had to write an entire walkthrough for myself to follow so I didn't miss a step. Did you end up upgrading to 1.1.2? I used the dev team method with GUI from the installer.

Ya, I had to downgrade to 1.1.1 > JB 1.1.1 > Update to 1.1.2 > JB 1.1.2 using a Java GUI, then use installer to auto-update to 1.1.3 JB

Takes about 2 hours to do, but it's pretty easy and straight forward to do.

Yes. Also, your signature is about 6 times larger than your actually post. C'mon, I know you want referrals, but seriously.

Technically yes, but you can restore it to the original Apple Firmware very easily.

Yeah, just reflash your firmware to its Apple virgin state if you need to bring it in to an employee and you should be hunky-dory. Unless you messed up the baseband, then :applause:

Technically yes, but with a nice restore it is pretty much impossible to see that anything has been done.

I used the one in this video.



It's pretty straight forward.

Quick Summary:
Need to have a 1.1.2 JB Touch
Install BSD Subsystem, Open SSH, and Services from Installer.app
Add "http://ipodtouchmaster.com/files/repo.xml" to your sources
Use the 1.1.3 JB installler
Wait about an hour (Watch the video for more info - It has to download a 160mb file from Apple)
Done

What app controls your computer and what does it control?

I'd <3 a remote desktop type-ish.

I already have a jailbroken 1.1.3 iPhone.

Not working, and too late now. I know some way to jailbreak 1.1.4 will come along soon anyway.........

And now I have my 1.1.4 ipod hooked up to my computer, and 100 mb is taken up from apps from jailbreak, and I can't remove them. Any ideas?

I'm so confused...
I got to the jailbreak me site on my ipod touch, then click Install AppSnap or whatever.
After 1 second it loads and there is a tiny blue square with a question mark in the corner...
WTF?

Jailbreakme.com only works with 1.1.1 Firmware. Sounds like you were trying to do it with 1.1.2+

I used the Official 1.1.3 Upgrader.

It's called VNSea, there's a tutorial here.

I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure what it does is basically restore to 1.1.3 but Jailbreak in the process. So your music should be gone, just re-sync.

Not working, and too late now. I know some way to jailbreak 1.1.4 will come along soon anyway.........

And now I have my 1.1.4 ipod hooked up to my computer, and 100 mb is taken up from apps from jailbreak, and I can't remove them. Any ideas?


Just restore, it reformats the entire iPod, every trace of Jailbreak should be erased.

You need to be running firmware 1.1.1 in order to use jailbreakme.com. If you aren't running firmware 1.1.1 you need to downgrade to it. There's a tutorial here.


1.1.4 is out! Let me go look up some stuff about it.

I restored it twice, it erased everything except the apps on my ipod. So there's 100 mb of space taken up, and I cant delete it. Resyncing didn't work either, and my music was still taking up space, but I couldn't access it at all.
