    Heya, i was wonderin if anyone here knew the BEST safest method to jailbreak a 1.1.4 iPod Touch.
    A friend asked me if he could download the 1.1.2 update, and then restore his iPod with that Update (Shift - Restore in a PC), and then jailbreak it by goin into jailbreakme.com, wud this work?

    Anyway i prefer jailbreaking the 1.1.4 directly so i can have newer functions!

    Thanks!

    I used ZiPhone - http://www.ziphone.org/ - and haven't had a bit of trouble so far. However, some posters here have reported problems. I have an 8GB model touch, those having problems may have larger ones. According to this - http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32471 - ZiPhone won't work on 16BG (or possibly 32GB) touches, but he offers a solution.

    There are other methods requiring quite a bit more work than ZiPhone and without any better guarintee of working. Do your homework (use the search function of this forum).

    I used ZiPhone to Jailbreak my 1.1.4 8GB touch and did not have any problems, but it now says I have 1.1.3. I however still have all the Apps I had before (Mail etc).

    Another Ziphone vote. I did my 32gb touch last week and had zero problems from 1.1.4.

    Use ziphone 2.6 and when you use it and if you get an error that sez "spamming at" hold home and power at the same time, then when it goes off plug it in and hold the home button and then the connect to itunes logo comes up start ziphone and go up to file in ziphone and click clear nvram and it will work pm me if u need more help

    I don't want to come off as being Holier Than Thou, but seriously, have you ever heard of punctuation and sentence structure? There are uses for the Shift Key and the two keys to the right of the letter "M". You'll get further here (and in life) using standard English than cell phone shorthand.

    I might as well throw in my dissenting vote against ziphone in favor of iJailbreak. I personally feel it is a better system and have heard less error reports compared to ziphone (the newest beta version anyway).

    That being said, they are fairly similar (I believe they collaborate together to some extent) so whichever you feel comfortable with should work just fine. I just personally feel that iJailbreak is slightly more user friendly.

    I used iJailbreak the other day to do the misses. Went from 1.1.2 to 1.1.4 and also enabled the iPhone Apps at the same time for £0 :rolleyes:

    Took about 45secs and only used this as ZiPhone wouldn't enable the iPhone apps.
