    Well, the tethered iTouch 2G jailbreak finally came out, but I need libusb for it to work. I download the source from sourceforge, decompress the folder, inside that is a configure file. I open it and nothing happens.
    Can someone help me or give a precompiled version?
    Thanks!

    That's a configure script that generates a makefile. You have to run it from the terminal as so:

    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install


    The steps above will generate a makefile for your platform, compile the library, and install it on your machine.

    If you don't want do this from a source tarball, you install FinkCommander.app or MacPorts and install packages (many pre-compiled) that way.

    If you don't know how to install libusb maybe it's not a good idea to try the Tethered jailbreak, why don't you wait for the GUI? Even the Dev Team refuses to give support to this release...

    Nah, nevermind
    I already found a precompiled version
    I tried opening the configure file, typing make, then sudo make install, like you said, but it didn't work.
    I've heard of macports before, though, but I never gave it a chance.
