    So thanks to you guys I discovered the happiness of having my itouch jailbroken, being a motivated itouch owner i decided to upgrade to 1.1.2 and now I cant jailbreak it!! any suggestions into getting this issue resolved? If I cant jailbreak it I will gladly go back to ver 1.1.1 if you guys help me find the site that i can download it. thanks in advance

    here ya go partner

    download the 1.1.1 official firmware, save it to a place you will remember. (if you have safari please turn off the auto open when downloaded option)

    if your touch isn't already in recovery mode as already instructed plug touch into pc/mac load itunes up and then hold down the lock/wake button and home key keep them held down eventually your touch will shut off, keep the buttons held down and when you see the apple logo let go of the lock/wake key ONLY leaving the home key pressed down and eventually you should get the itunes logo with pic of the usb wire.

    iTunes should now say its detected an ipod in recovery mode click ok, now depending what system your using for windows hold the shift key down or for mac options key then press restore and point iTunes to the ipsw file and click open, iTunes should start restoring your touch to 1.1.1. When its done point the touch's safari to, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on install AppSnapp and soon after safari will "crash" if you wait yout touch will start to auto jailbreak, if memory serves me once the install has complete reboot your touch and your jailbroken.

    to upgrade to 1.1.2 first step, go to installer then scroll down to 1.1.1 tweaks and install oktoprep. Once installed plug ipod in to pc/mac and update to official 1.1.2. When updated grab the 1.1.2 jailbreak program and extract to a folder. If you are running windows then run windows.bat if mac then the osx file, tick install ssh and click the jailbreak button. When this has finised doing its thing power off your touch then turn it back on, your touch will reboot when loaded up (this is normal) when its rebooted you will then have a jailbroken 1.1.2

    make sure you add to installer sources and you will have a nice and easy install of iphone apps

    to add a source in installer

    1. open installer
    2. click sources
    3. click edit
    4. click add
    5. enter url
    6. click ok
    7. wait for sources to refresh
    8. go back to install
    9. scroll down to iphone apps for 1.1.1/iphone apps for 1.1.2

    for mail and maps make sure you install the prep items aswell

    I have a similar problem, after I downgraded to 1.1.1, installed installer, and upgraded back to 1.1.2, all with the help of, I got to step 5-3 "download and extract the 1.1.2 jailbreak..." and it was just a link to (needless to say, I was confused). So I come here and see that I need to download the jailbreak from conceited software and I did, but now I'm lost again.
    It would be great if someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong, because at this point I'd be fine back with installer at 1.1.1

    how are you lost?

    is it that the 1.1.2 jailbreak program isn't working? are you not sure what to do with the program??

    ok guys, it's really simple.
    1. Download this 1.1.1 file. Make sure that when you download it, it stays as either a .zip or .ipsw, if not, download it with a different browser. If it's a .zip, just rename it to .ipsw. Put this somewhere you can remember (like your desktop).
    2. Connect your iPod and put it in restore mode (hold home+sleep, let go of sleep after 10 seconds, keep home held down), open iTunes if it doesn't by itself, and select your iPod in the left pane.
    3. Option+click restore (shift+click on windows).
    4. Select the .ipsw file and hit ok.
    5. Once it's finished restoring, go to on your ipod and click "install appsnapp" at the bottom.
    6. Once that's finished, open installer, and click on All Packages, then select OkToPrep. Install this.
    7. Now connect your iPod, open iTunes, and select it in the left pane.
    8. Click on Upgrade (NOT RESTORE).
    9. Let it Upgrade.
    10. Download this Jailbreak package and extract it your desktop.
    11. Make sure your iPod is still connected, and open the folder you just downloaded. If you're on windows, double click Windows.bat, if you're on mac, double click Jailbreak.jar.
    12. Follow the on-screen instructions to jailbreak it.
    13. You're done.

    Read Albino's step 1 again. I think you missed something in your eagerness:
    If it's a .zip, just rename it to .ipsw.

    That means that you downloaded it, and it automatically extracted it. In safari, go to Preferences (cmd+,), and uncheck the box that says "Open 'safe' files after downloading". Now re-download the file, and it should be an .ipsw file.

    Ok I got a really stupid question, when I am downloading all this stuff am I doing it on my Touch via WiFi or am I doing it on my computer then transferring over to my Touch via USB? I plan on buying my Touch today and want to hit the ground running once I open it. Excuse me for such a silly question.

    issues with upgrade

    I have a new iTouch running 1.1.2. I went through the great directions on this thread, and everything works as described, but when the ipod reboots after running the 1.1.2 jailbreak, it gets stuck with the picture of the usb cable, and the itunes logo. I'm sure I missed something, but I've tried this 4 times, starting from scratch each time. I found in the readme in the 1.1.2 jailbreak that you're supposed to shutdown itunes before double clicking the jailbreak.jar. That didn't help. I've rebooted the mac, and the ipod. I currently have it jaibroke and running 1.1.1 until I can get this resolved.

    Any ideas?
