In this Instructable, I will show you how to jailbreak your Ipod Touch and update to 1.1.2. I will walk you through, step by step, to open your Touch for 3rd party applications.

*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
- Itunes

Note: When you look at the screenshots, you can see I'm dutch. But I hope they are clear enough.

Step 1: Safety Procedures

Before we are going to jailbreak your Ipod, I will tell you what to do, if your Ipod is acting weird.

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.

Let's begin!

I bought an ipod from a person. I cant find the person and I cant even get into the ipod touch without the pass code im tryin to bypass it so i can change it and start usin my ipod touch it wont even let me go into i tunes without the password im never going to get so can i get around this?
i would just keep guesing and write down your guess or did they set it so that after so may trys you have to go onto itunes if so then goodluck and try to contact the person you got it from
tell me if it works out 4 ya!
i know how 2 get around it. first u need 2 plug in ur ipod 2 ur computer. then bring up itunes if u have it(if not go to apple.com and download 4 free) and on the side where the toolbars r (the left side where it says music movies video ect.) i pic of ur ipod shuld pop up and should say ipod. Then click on the ipod and wait a moment. when it loads u shuld see a buton close 2 the middle of the screen that says restore. click restore, and wait for it. (this may take awhile) afterwards ur ipod shuld be back 2 normal like u just bought it. This will delete everything on the pod, but u will be able 2 get onto it and there will be no password.
If you don't want it, can you give it to me please? I have use of it.
Enter DFU mode: Plug iPod in, hold sleep & home until you get the disconnect sound, let go of sleep until it reconnects. Restore in iTunes.
you hold the sleep button and home button down for a long time to restore with out itunes.

You can only jailbreak your iPod from firmware 1.1.1. If you have 1.1.2, you can still downgrade it to 1.1.1.
how do you downgrade your ipod?
1. Download the <a rel="nofollow" href="http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net/content.info.apple.com/iPod/SBML/osx/bundles/061-3932.20070927.p23dD/iPod1,1_1.1.1_3A110a_Restore.ipsw">iPod touch 1.1.1 ipsw firmware</a>iPod touch 1.1.1 ipsw firmware file from Apple. Do this in Firefox .<br/><br/>2. Connect your iPod touch to your PC or Mac.<br/><br/>3. Put your iPod touch into restore mode by holding down the power and home keys. Release the power button after the screen goes blank but hold the Home key until iTunes recognises your iPod in restore mode. Now press and hold the Shift key on Windows or the Option key on Mac (In iTunes), then click Restore in iTunes. It will open up the File dialog. Now you can select the 1.1.1 firmware file you downloaded earlier.<br/><br/>4. When iTunes asks if you want to A) Set the iPod up as a new iPod. or B) Restore from a Backup. : Choose A. <br/>
when I download the software off of firefox i go to restore it (shift click) i go to the file, it loads up and it says that the ipod could not be restored an unknown error has occurred. What do I do?
did you ever get your I pod restored under 1.1.1 firmware? because i have the same problem
