    I do not have any wireless networks near me but I do have ethernet so I thought that in order to jailbreak my touch, I would set up an ad-hoc network on my laptop, set up a proxy and connect through to internet on my touch through my laptop. This works fine and I can browse anything on safari but I cannot jailbreak my ipod using the proxy, if I go to jailbreakme.com, setting the right user agent so that it lets me do it, safari just crashes then nothing happens...
    Is it using another port or something, is there anything I can do to get it working?
