I was hoping someone could give me a step by step instruction of how to jailbreak a 16GB 1.1.4 iPod touch with ziphone 2.6 using mac osx leopard. I have read ziphone.org but cannot understand exactly what to do. Please help.

ZiPhone was just updated. It works fine now, but you do have to do a fresh restore on your iPod before you run it.

Plug it into your computer. Launch iTunes. Click on Touch. Hit Restore

You shouldn't need to restore unless you've already tried jailbreaking it.

Just open ZiPhone, connect your ipod, click 'Jailbreak' and wait about 1 minute :)

Worked perfectly for me :)
Just jailbroke mine 30 minutes ago

awesome it worked. Took me about 45 seconds to jailbreak my 1.1.4 16GB iPod touch.

Yep, I decided to again start from scratch, so I did a Restore to v1.1.4, then used ZiPhone 2.6 and in 4 seconds, my 8GB iPod Touch was Jailbroken.

A couple tips:

The first things I installed were some "core" packages:
BSD SubSystem
Cydia package
OpenSSH
MobileTerminal

This alone lets me access my iPT using WinSCP and PuTTY, so from that point, just about anything is possible.

I then applied a few "tweaks" through PuTTY to get things working more properly. (ALL of these tweaks came form George Zhu's Blog (http://george.zjlotto.com/index.php/2008/02/02/fix-application-issues-in-113/).) The tweaks were:

chmod 777 /var/root/Library
chmod 777 /var/root/Library/Preferences

chown -R mobile:mobile /var/mobile

chmod 4755 /usr/bin/login
mkdir -p /usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib /usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/lib/.

When I login using MobileTerminal, I can always su root and tweak anything I want.
