View Full Version : Which Jailbreak Software has the Least Problems
Jun 5, 2009, 06:51 PM
Hello, all of you jailbreakers. I am thinking of jailbreaking my iPod Touch (running 2.2.1, as of this post. I will edit it if I update). I don't want my iPod Touch to crash, so I am wondering which software is the least buggy. Please rate your jailbreak software on a scale of 1 (Utterly horrible) to 10 (Amazing in every single way possible). Please rate it on the following things:
Problems/crashes. How many did you have and were they easy to fix
Number of apps that you were able to install (preferably games)
How easy it was to jailbreak it with.
Just to let you know I am on a Mac, so the software needs to work with macs.

Use Pwnage Tool. I had a 1st gen iPod touch. I have been jailbreaking since the days of 1.1.1 and jailbreakme.com, ahh I wish it was still that easy. I will rate my jailbreak experience at 10. I love it, even now as I use my iPhone. I have had crashes, and have had to do restores, but it is a thing you must accept with jailbreaking. I have never had any problems that I couldn't fix myself. I love jailbreaking, and recommended/do it for all my peers. But it all depends on what you install/run on the device. And just remember that a DFU (http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1034) restore is always your friend when you run into a problem you can't fix. :)

jmann: you think quickpwn isn't easy? I mean come on you bung it in recovery mode then DFU and then quickpwn does the rest how easy is that?
cheese1756: it depends on the device you have, if you have 1st generation touch then I would definately recommend quickpwn (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/74278878/close-the-stable-door) as a quick solution to jailbreak. If you have 2nd gen and windows operating system then quickfreedom.com (http://quickfreedom.com) is the place to go, I am not sure about 2nd gens on macs, I would probably best suggest to you to get redsn0w (http://www.redsn0w.com/)
websites to avoid if you google how to jailbreak
these are NOT official websites and are not backed by the OFFICIAL dev team (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/) who slog their guts out to bring us the jailbreaks.
