    I made a tutorial showing how to jailbreak your iPod Touch 2g running 3.0 firmware. The Jailbreak uses redsn0w 0.7.1 released by the Dev team this morning. Enjoy!

    Hello.

    I've bought the 3.0 @ 9.95 USD.

    So when I JB, do I JB in the way you did it?

    or have to downgrade to 2.2.1 first?

    your iPod touch has to have the 3.0 firmware on it when you jailbreak

    i think it's totally worth it. you can install all those apps from torrents or check out appulo.us im sure you will find something you will be interested in.

    Hello.

    Before the jailbreak. my wifi is working perfectly normal.

    After jailbreaking 3.0 with redsn0w on the 2nd gen iPod Touch, nothing seems to be connected.

    My SSID is correct, I get the signal bar (full) on the top left corner of the screen.

    Keep getting this message " Safari cannot open the page because it is not connected to the internet"

    Tried resetting the router & resetting the network settings & renew lease & forget the network and add back & rebooting the iPod.

    Nothing works.

    What should I do?

    Just got back from a trip and I had anxiously read this from my iPod touch in the hotel... now that I'm home to do it, I can't!

    I've looked in ~/Library/iTunes/ and there is no folder containing iPod IPSWs, just a plugin folder and a scripts I created for Needle Drop... any idea where it would be? Yes, I did purchase 3.0 legally.

    Edit, just thought about it. I believe I upgraded the touch on my Vista machine (before I got my MBP), will I be able to use this IPSW on the mac?

    Question... I bought my Touch off ebay a week ago and it came with 3.0 installed. I want to Jailbreak it but if I do and its sluggish, buggy and all is there a way to get it back to unjailbroken 3.0 without purchasing the software again?

    Does that make sense? Thanks for the help
