    I just used this method to jailbreak my 32GB iTouch today and I can confirm that it works. It only works with the Windows version of Ziphone so I had to use Parallels to do it. If you follow everything he says, you'll have a nice jailbroken 1.1.4 iTouch.

    Oh yeah, I think that's the guy who created Ziphone. It's the same video I saw on the Ziphone blog.

    I don't understand the instructions. I closed it once it got to the mac address part and then it kept going, it restarted and then dumped me back into that loop. So I don't know what the hell I am doing wrong.

    You've almost got it. When you get pass the part where it tells you the mac address, you have to close Ziphone or else it will loop the iPod which is what happened.

    Ya that's what I did. I closed the ZiPhone I SAW, but there are about 50 other processes it makes when you keep clicking the jailbreak button.

    So you posted this 5 days ago, yet both ZiPhone.org AND the video were only posted 2 days ago. Makes sense.

    And yes I did do a search for ZiPhone 2.5c in iPod hacks and your thread never came up, because you posted the link to ipodtouchfans.

    Works For Me™

    Worked on my 1.1.3 16GB touch with the $20 update (update still works fine).

    It was pretty tricky to get the timing of the clicks right; clicking too quickly got my iPod stuck on the "connect to iTunes" screen, clicking too slowly didn't have any effect. I had to try five or six times before I could get it to work, so it's a good thing that even if the jailbreak fails, your iPod isn't bricked and you don't need to restore it (and spend an hour reloading all your media). Just follow these easy steps:

    1. disconnect the iPod
    2. hold down the home and power keys until the Apple logo appears
    3. release the power key but keep the home key pressed until the "connect to iTunes" screen appears
    4. reconnect the iPod and start Ziphone
    5. open the advanced options panel, and click on "Normal mode"

    After 30 seconds or so, your iPod should be back in working order, ready for a new jailbreak attempt. If not, start again at 1.

    Note: turn off automatic updating of iPods in iTunes preferences and deselect "Open iTunes when this iPod is connected" on the iPod's page in iTunes, otherwise iTunes will probably interfere with the process.

    I used the Windows (XP) version of Ziphone, running under VMware on my Mac.

    Good luck!

    Funny, considering there are no hard drives in Touches.

    semantics......

    everyone understood what he ment, no need to argue what word was used it got the point across..


    But yea that is crazy that simply clicking it a bunch, kind of 'pushes' the process through and it doesnt get hung up on errors.. odd.. I wish i had an ipod Touch to try it out on :(
