• [ HOW TO ] Jailbreak iPod Touch with redsn0w | 1G/2G | OS X

    This guide shows you how to jailbreak your iPod Touch (1G or 2G) using the DevTeam's redsn0w tool.

    First you'll need to do two things:

    1. Backup and Restore your iPod Touch. Just connect to iTunes and sync. If you have any Cydia apps from a previous firmware, they will be deleted when we restore. Here's a few places you may want to back up manually if you're worried about it... I didn't.

      /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook - Contacts
      /var/mobile/Library/Calendar - Calendar
      /var/mobile/Library/Notes - Notes
      /var/mobile/Library/Safari - Bookmarks, Cookies
      /var/mobile/Library/SMS - Text Messages.
    2. Download redsn0w.

      redsn0w 0.7 for Mac Megaupload Rapidshare

    Alright, open redsn0w now that you've downloaded it. You'll be greeted with the welcome screen, and asked to browse for your 3.0 .ipsw file. You should have already restored to it, so if you don't have it on your desktop (read: you downloaded it through iTunes), it will most likely be located at Macintosh HD/Users/(your name) Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/iPod2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw in your computer.

    Browse to it and find it, and redsn0w should sit a sec saying processing, then tell you the IPSW has been successfully identified. Click Next.

    redsn0w will run through a flurry of info in a popup window.

    Next you'll be asked if you want to install Cydia. You do. Click Next.

    K, this bit is a LITTLE tricky. You'll see the screen with instructions on entering DFU mode - only thing to be aware of is you should have your iPod Touch IN HAND when you press Next (after following the instructions to turn it off while connected), with your fingers ready to press Power and Home at same time - the instructions come fast, and are on a precise time limit. I had to do it twice.

    Follow the instructions in holding down the power button and various steps.

    Now you'll see the app telling you more info as it goes through its steps. During this time your iPod Touch will have some images on it as well.

    Assuming all went well, that's it! Click Finish, and your iPod Touch will sit doing some more stuff about 2 minutes, then you're all good!

    Note: If your iPod Touch won't start back up (just goes to Apple loading screen and stays), its probably because you didn't Restore to a fresh 3.0 BEFORE running this tool.

      It seems like to use rapidshare, you have to buy something from one of their sponsors? Could you upload it in a new place?

      I'm trying to install a whited00r on 1G iPod Touch. But I got a restore error so I wanted to use redsn0w to get past that. But THe redsn0w available in most places seems to be latest version that won't work on 1G.

      So I found this which should works on 1G except I can't download the file because rapidshare makes it hard on you.

      You should try MediaFire or something other then RapidShare, I've had bad experiences in the past. If you still can't get Redsn0w, I reccomend you try Sn0wbreeze.
