    Ok so I want to jailbreak my 2nd generation iPod Touch running firmware 3.1.3 for the first time I've never jailbroken before. I am using a mac and do not have access to a pc, and my iPod model number starts with mb. I ran PwnageTool and got the custom .ipsw file and put my ipod into recovery mode like i was prompted. Opened iTunes and option clicked restore and selected the custom .ipsw file but then iTunes says preparing iPod for restore for a long time. Then gives me error 1604 I've tried changing usb ports and accounts and I rebooted my computer rebooted iPod restarted iTunes and tried multiple times, and nothing works what am i doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

    Try redsn0w 0.9.4 for a change, see if it makes a difference.

    I recommend reds0w 0.9.4 as well but when it asks you to "Select the ISPW of your current firmware" you need to point it to 3.1.2

    It worked thank you very very much one thing though, I had to downgrade to 3.1.2 which doesn't matter to me but if someone else trys to do this they will need 3.1.2. So now I have a jailbroken iPod, what are some goods things to do with it and apps for it?
