    I'm trying to jailbreak my iPod Touch 1g. But pwnagetool can't recognize firmware 2.0 bundle (5A347) even when I manually directed it to the .ipsw file. What am I doing wrong?

    if you do a search in top right corner (sorry not very up on macs so not sure what it's called is it spotlight?) for ipsw and see the 2.2 firware there drag it to the desktop and then try pointing pwnagetool to the firmware and see if that works.

    Failing which if you can locate it, delete it and re-download via iTunes as a starting point anyways

    Just a thought. If you downloaded PwnageTool with Safari, try re-downloading it with Firefox. Something about the diskmounting plugin in safari that affects it. Again, worth a try.

    I've tried redownloading PwnageTool 2.2.1 and iPod firmware 2.0 (5A347) but it still doesn't work. PwnageTool says wrong firmware bundle selected even when firmware 2.0 is on the desktop. What's wrong with this?

    forget 2.0 thats the more unstable of the 2.x firmwares go with 2.1 (5F137) or 2.2 (5G77)

    Thanks. I dl 2.1 and it totally worked. But when I tried to restore all my music and data back it says the firmware version is too old and I had to reimport everything. If I had dl 2.2 and hacked it, would I have had this problem?

    No. It always says that.
    Happened to me when I was trying to Download something off of the Appstore.
    Juts update to 2.2.

    So everything seems fine. Finally! Could I update to 2.2 through iTunes and keep my iPod jailbreaked, or would 2.2 restore everything and erase jailbreak?

    No - not with PT. It will wipe out the JB. It will work fine, but you will need to JB again.

    Updating to 2.2 or restoring to 2.2 will remove your jailbreak. An easier option is to upgrade to 2.2 and then use Quickpwn to jailbreak it.

    When I upgrade to 2.2 and use Quickpwn to jailbreak it again, would I have to install every jailbreak app all over again?

    you mean we'd have to repwned all our iPods and reinstall every app after each time Apple sends out an update and we choose to update? Isn't there a way to backup the pwned iPod and save apps that we've already installed before updating to 2.2?
