    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 but cannot understand exactly what to do. Please help.

    Plug Touch into Mac.

    Launch ZiPhone. Select Jailbreak Touch. Wait one minute. Done.

    even with the 16 gb cause before I've gotten the bsd loop error.

    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

    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.) 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.
