    I downloaded iPod touch 2.0 firmware from a website for free, upgrded my iPod with it and tried to pwnage it but the pwnage tool 2.0.1 didn,t find the ipsw and when I browse it through expert mode it finds but I am unable to make changes to anything and after that custom ipsw formed doesn’t do anything. I stuck with the 2.0 iPod touch which can’t be jailbroken .help to jailbreak .

  • lololololol

  • janexyz

    if you jailbreak or unlock your iPod touch you can download lots of 3rd party applications that you could not get before. it should work for all versions. apple are meant to open up all ipod touch to 3rd pty apps this summer but dont hold your breath.

  • rommi

    dang this stuff seems simple but when you try to do it its hard. thats what i have heard atleast.

    Can doing this damage my ipod touch?

    What the crap is firmware?
