    Do you think if the full version comes out there will be Windows support?

    I really need a Mac... :(

    I'm in the same position as you.
    And most likely, especially if an untethered version is released.

    I figured. I really need that, especially since for some reason my iPod will just restart on some of my videos at a certain point.

    I don't actually have an iPod Touch. But i jailbreak my friend's iPods for them :D Most of them have the 2G, so that's why I've been wanting it. I'm not afraid of using the tethered jailbreak, but I just don't think they'll want me to have to take it away again every time they turn it off ;)

    In a way, the tethered version coming out is a BAD thing. The Dev Team said they would only release it if they became stuck with the full jailbreak. So, it's going to be a while, if ever, until we see the full version of redsn0w :(

    I just followed what the tutorial said basically. After step 4 in this tutorial, I then switched to this tutorial starting at step 7 using the iRecovery/libusb link from it, along with the 2.1.1 link from it.

    As for the person on 64-bit Vista, I don't know if it has anything to do with that or not since I'm using 32-bit. All I could really suggest is un-plugging it from the iPod, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging it back in.
