*Warning: You do this at you own risk, I will not take any responsibility for what happens to your Ipod Touch!*
While you jailbreak your Ipod, there is just a small risk to brick your Ipod. In the most cases you can just restore your Ipod, I will tell you how in the first step. And again: I will not take any responsibility, when your screw up your Ipod.
What you need:
- an Ipod Touch (firmware 1.1.1, settings - general - about => version)
- a stable Wi-Fi connection
Note: When you look at the screenshots, you can see I'm dutch. But I hope they are clear enough.
Step 1: Safety Procedures
1. Don't panic!
2. Plug your Ipod in your computer.
3. Press the wake-button and home-button at the same time, until you see the apple logo appear.
4. When you see the logo, let the wake-button go, but still hold the home button.
5. After a few seconds you will see the 'connect to itunes'-image. Let go the home-button.
6. Open Itunes and it should recognize your Ipod.
7. Click on restore.
8. If this don't work and you see only a plain screen, there's a big change that he's bricked.
Step 2: Jailbreak 1.1.1
Step 3: Preparations for the 1.1.2 Jailbreak
*Don't forget this step, otherwise you won't be able to jailbreak 1.1.2!*
Step 4: Update Your Ipod Touch to 1.1.2
Step 5: Jailbreak 1.1.2
Unzip the files (use WinRAR) in ~/Desktop/Jailbreak.
Now ensure your Ipod is plugged in your computer and you have installed OktoPrep, now run 'windows.bat' (double click on it).
It will start and a screen pops up.
"Make sure you check the 'Install SHH' box and the root password is 'alpine' !"
Now hit the 'Jailbreak'-button and let the program do it's work.
After it's finished: Congratulations, your Ipod Touch has been successfully jailbreaked!
Let's move on and install some applications!
Step 6: Install WinSCP
When you installed the program, start it and a window appears asking for a Hostname, Username and password.
Your Hostname is your Ipod's IP address, you can find this address by navigate to Settings, Wi-Fi, tap the blue arrow beside the Network your connected to, and then it's the number beside "IP Address" e.g. 123.456.7.89.
Your username is root.
And your password is alpine.
Now you must click on save, then twice OK and your profile has been saved.
Step 7: Prepare the Ipod
Now open the application called SHH (on the homepage) and put it on.
Ensure you have your iPod connected to the Wi-Fi network and login on WinSHH.
Step 8: Enter the IPod
Now you are in your iPod Touch and you can put things on it.
If you click 3 times on the 2 dots, you will be in the root of your iPod.
Move on to the next step to install applications.
Step 9: Install IPhone Applications
Unzip the archive somewhere and go back to WinSCP.
Navigate in the left column of WinSCP to the map where you unzipped the archive and you are ready to install the appications. To put a map on your iPod, simply drag and drop the map from the left column to the right.
Now I will tell you where top put which map:
Weather.app, MobileMail.app, Stock.app, Maps.app, MobileNotes to "/Applications/"
GMM.framework to "/System/Library/Frameworks/"
MobileMailSettings.bundle to "/System/Library/PreferenceBundles/"
When you are done, change the permission of the maps to 755.
(right-click, properties, permission:)
Step 10: Congratulations
Remember that the installer applications has also a lot of applications that you can use.
Applications I recommend (you can download them all by the installer app):
- Summerboard (let you change the theme of your homepage)
- Apollo (Instant Messenger)
I hope you enjoyed this instructable and have fun with your jailbreaked Ipod!
