    Yesterday, my friend and I were trying to jailbreak my new Itouch 3G 32gigs. He installed me black ra1n, Cindia then Installous for cracked apps but after, I turned the Itouch off, when I wanted to open it, the Ipod ordered me to connect to Itune then restore it. I had no other option. :confused:

    Any suggestion please ? Thanks for help !!!

    Note: I had the lastest update of the Itouch too

    The newest ipods have a tethered jailbreak. Every time you turn off the ipod it will tell you you have to restore, but you just have to run blackra1n again, and it will start up.

    I tried to do this twice and both times, I was asked to restore my itouch
    and blackra1n was never installed.
    I gave up before I did something I could not fix
    its not worth my time.

    Basically, if you have an MC model iPod Touch (3rd Gen 8/32/64) you're jailbreak is tethered. If you have to turn it off/reboot, you'll need to connect it to a computer and re-run Blackra1n. It will look like it is getting re-jailbroken, but it'll just be turning on. All your jailbreak settings should remain the same.
