    Hi all, 1st post so go easy.

    I am using Vista on a Dell laptop (waiting to afford a new MacBook - which costs a bomb in the UK!), managed to downgrade my ipod touch ok and install from - do the OKTOPREP thingy ok and installer appears on my springboard no probs. go back into itunes and have tried both the auto update and shift+restore to select the downloaded version of 1.1.2, both work fine.

    I then get to double click the windows.bat file which simply calls the jailbreak.jar, it brings up the dialog box ok, I select SSH, password as alpine and click on Jailbreak where it just hangs forever with this message in the cmd window:

    "java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.lang.String.contains(Ljava/lang/CharSequence;)
    at Jailbreak.prepareIphuc(
    at Jailbreak$
    at (Unknown Source)"

    I have tried the method shown on this forum and the Touchfree one too and none of them seem to be working for me.

    Please help!

    Yup, found a different jailbreak zip out there and tries it and it worked fine. I was using the right file (windows.bat) but the jailbreak.jar must have been screwed up!

    Thanks anyway - got another problem to try and solve so will search for answers before adding a new question:)

    I'm not sure if it uses the same file whether you're on mac or pc, but the 1.1.1 file is available from this page:

    If you use safari to download it, it will atomatically extrct it, so open up firefox and paste the link above into it.

    Good luck, i hope that helps....
