Picture of JailBreaking your Ipod Touch 3rd generation
TETHERED FOR 3rd GEN, NON TETHERED FOR FIRST AND SECOND GENS

This Cristmas 2009 I received a new ipod touch 3g. after playing with it for a day or two I found that I couldn't do anything that apple didnt want me to I couldn't even access my ipods files through the My Computer program.

So in a rebellion against this injustice I jailbroke my ipod. This instructable will teach you how to jailbrake your ipod touch

*sorry for the poor image quality, I took them with my cellphone*
*please leave feedback and sugestions and I will try to add them*
*In case of application error, try this older version. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=X653HG43 *
*note only works with OS 3.1.2 and below*
*many people have been getting an weird error "ASL.dll missing" I think. Here is the solution: Move the Blackra1n.exe file to:

for 32 bit systems – C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support

for 64 bit systems – C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support

then run the program from there.

next you need to install a "3d party itunes" so find the black rain icon on your spring board
and open it.

To install just tap the one you want.
