    The instructions were:

    I did the TIFF exploit already and I put the 3 files from Desktop - Jailbreak onto the desktop and I put the folder "opt" onto my root folder. I open up terminal and I copy and paste the lines "cd Desktop ./iphuc" and it just says image not found or something. What do I do?

    OK, I got the cd desktop part, but when I go to type "./iphuc" i get this

    Code:
    dyld: Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libreadline.5.2.dylib
      Referenced from: /Users/username/Desktop/./iphuc
      Reason: image not found
    Trace/BPT trap

    Well I guess I accidently put libreadline.5.2.dylib in the wrong folder.
    I put it in /opt/local/lib/libreadline.5.2.dylib and now I'm getting this when I type in "./iphuc"

    Code:
    iphuc 0.6.1 with tab completion.

    EDIT: OK, what I went on doing was plugging in my iPod into my computer and now I'm getting all this text and it looks like it's working, but iTunes popped up and told me to name the iPod like it was new. What do I do? BTW, I entered "getfile /dev/rdisk0s1 iphonefs/rdisk0s1 314572800" before I attached my iPod.

    Can someone tell me if Im doing it right?

    Alright, the extracting portion is finished and I think I know what I'm doing..haha, I accidently did the extracting thing twice since I thought I didn't do it...I hope that is ok

    Well, even though no one really helped me (since no one replied :( I was able to figure this part on my own by typing what I did) Guess it worked...weird..alright, on to my hacking!

    Yes. What I think might have been a problem was that when I plugged in my iPod to do the extracting, iTunes popped up and it told me to name my iPod. After extraction was complete, I renamed it to a .dmg file and mounted it, then opened the etc folder and replaced it with the file. After that I unmounted then entered the code into iPhuc after that, it didnt look like it was doing anything so I opened up iTunes and where it told me to name my iPod, I canceled and it ejected my iPod and after that, I tried to open up Independence and it gave me errors so I reseted my iPod and now I am re-syncing and possibly giving up on this hacking thing...I'll consider trying this again if anyone has any clue to what I went wrong. I'd really appreciate it!


    *Above was pretty much a step by step thing I did*

    How about this step for SSH-ing?

    I used these steps: http://www.touchdev.net/wiki/Jailbreak_Guide

    I think I know what to do, but can someone please tell me what I should do if iTunes pops up telling you to name your iPod? Is that even supposed to happen?

    i believe it did for me. Just ignore it. The iTunes synching is fixed in later steps.
