Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Download Software

  • For 2.2 download this and save it.
  • Or if you have the 3.0 firmware download this
  • if you have 3.1.1 or above you will need to downgrade or use http://blackra1n.com/
Always check the dev team for jailbreaking new versions of firmware!!

to find you're firmware go to settings, general, about, and it's under version

if you download the latest firmware while jailbroken you will have your ipod returned to normal

Step 2: Extract It

Right click on the zipped file and select extract all. The file will then look normal.

Step 3: Open Redsn0w

Open the first file then open the redsn0w file. Then run redsn0w to see if it is working.

For the 3.0 version you need to enter the ISPW. Just enter that and select the 3.0 firmware.

Step 4: Loading

You will now need to put your ipod in DFU mode. To do this, follow the picture below starting with the ipod on. Then run redsn0w and it will say stuff like killing itunes and stuff (not bad). On your ipod you will see a hard drive and a jogging pineapple.

---note it is not recommend to have iTunes running

    As far as my experience goes I have never had a problem that restoring has not solved. The only main problem is that 3.1.1 is NOT jailbreakable yet.

    This is outdated! Quickpwn works wayyyyyyy better and lets you get installer and custom boot logos. plus the instructions are barely understandable. Though i do agree with you about your username!

    i meant Quickfreedom. All you have to do is follow the steps the gui tells you to do.

    the coustom boot logo has major bugs i put the pineapple boot logo on my friends ipod and we couldent turn it on

    I kind of like Icy better than Cydia for downloads, just because it looks neater and is more organized/easy to access. Great tutorial, I have already done this, and cydia crashes more than Icy, so I just prefer it. Another app to recommend is the one called categories. It lets you organize apps in any fashion you like. I used to have 7 pages of apps, now it is in 2 pages.

    Yeah, I just switched to icy this weekend and love it. Its a amazingly nice because its so fast. Its a lot cleaner. My favorite app is intelliscreen. Love the rss feeds function of it and calendar and weather all of the lock screen. It does so much more though. Check it out.
