THIS IS DEPRECATED, VISIT THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR NEWER JAILBREAKS: http://www.slovix.com/touchfree/ Here are my recommended methods: Easiest: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=377126 Requires Java (but older and more tested): http://www.slovix.com/touchfree/alpha2.zip If those don't work, I would advise the older alpha (it's now been well-tested, but it does lack auto-install of SSH): http://www.slovix.com/touchfree/touchfree-alpha.exe RESTORE INSTRUCTIONS ------------------------ It is impossible to brick, or render permanently inoperable, your iPod touch. These instructions will work. Repeat them if they do not work the first time (since some of the manuevers do require good timing). My previous restore instructions did not work so well as I found out when I first tried to test them (they were copied off of another website). I apologize for that, but here are the ones that do work for me every time: 1. If the iPod is on, turn it off. If it is not responding to commands, hold down the Home and Stand-by buttons until it turns off (will be less than 30 seconds). 2. After it has turned off, turn it back on with a special key combination. First push the Stand-by button, then push the Home button while still holding the Stand-by button. You must already be holding the Home button by the time the Apple logo displays. 3. Within moments, the Apple logo will display. At this point, release the Stand-by button but do not release the home button. 4. Hold the Home button until the logo asking you to plug the iPod into iTunes displays. You are now in Restore Mode. Essentially the last three steps are this: 1. Push down the Stand-by button. 2. Push down the Home button. [Apple logo displays] 3. Release the Stand-by button. [Connect to iTunes displays] 4. Release the Home button. If iTunes still errors during Restore, a reboot of your COMPUTER will often fix the issue. If not, just take it to a friend's computer or reinstall iTunes. Trust me, your iPod is not bricked. If you think it's bricked, I'd be glad to take it off your hands for $10. Older stuff: Old command line version (revision 5): http://zoo.cs.yale.edu/~yw226/ipod/touchfree5.zip Source (for revision 5): http://zoo.cs.yale.edu/~yw226/ipod/source.cs Old readme: NOTES ON SSH/SFTP ----------------- - Username to SSH is root, password is alpine - Recommended SSH client is PuTTY - Recommended SFTP client is WinSCP - If you're getting "connection timed out" errors, continually browse with Safari on the iPod while trying to connect to keep wi-fi active. NOTES ON iPhuc -------------- - iPhuc will not show / after this procedure, but you can get root by typing the following command into iPhuc: setafc com.apple.afc2 NOTES ON RESTORING ------------------ You can restore at any time during or after the jailbreak process. Your iPod will be in a fresh, un-jailbroken state. If you're having trouble restoring your iPod, first put it into recovery mode. If you're still having trouble, a reboot of your computer is often helpful. I end the iTunesHelper.exe process, which is responsible for launching iTunes whenever an iPod is connected. So if you connect your iPod and iTunes doesn't appear and sync as always, just open iTunes yourself and tell it to sync. It should work fine. A reboot of your computer will restore the iTunesHelper.exe process.
