How to Jailbreak 2.2 (Mac)

dualcorex on iPodTouchFans has posted a guide on how to jailbreak 2.2 for macs.

If you have WINDOWS and need a WINDOWS guide: CLICK ME


Heres how to do it,


In this guide i will explain how to jailbreak your iphone 3g, iphone edge, or ipod touch 1g on the new 2.2 firmware. Before you begin make sure you are on a stock 2.2 firmware. I do not recommend starting from a jailbroken 2.1 device. Just start fresh.

Step 1:
Download QuickPwn 2.2 for macs,

Step 2:
Open up the Quickpwn application

Step 3:
Click ‘ok’ on the dialog box on the opening of Quickpwn

Step 4:
Connect your device to your computer and then click ‘ok’ on the dialog box

Step 5:
When Quickpwn asks you to change your boot logos I recommend you dont. If something goes wrong and your stuck at the boot logo with a nice little pineapple, Apple will not replace your device. Protect your investment and click no

Step 6:
Quickpwn will now build the IPSW. Just wait about 1 min

Step 7:
Turn off your device

Step 8:
Now you are going to put your device into DFU mode. Just follow the on-screen instructions and you will be fine. This mode enables Quickpwn to flash your device.

Step 9:
An iTunes error popup might appear. Just hit ok

Step 10:
Now Quickpwn will do its magic. You should see this information on your screen

and then

Step 11:
Now a dialog box should appear under Quickpwn. Hit ‘ok’ but do not disconnect your device from your computer. In fact, dont touch it!

Step 12:
Your iPhone or iPod Touch’s screen should show this image with a progress bar. This takes about 1-2 min.

Step 13:
Your iphone should reboot and you will be good to go!

    i have got 2 stage 4 and i have followed the steps but i does not do anything. i have plugged it into my mac and clicked ok, waited a few min and nothing has happened. i have read that the late 2008 mac books seem to be having some problems. is this one of them?

    Is your iPhone/iPod Touch in DFU mode or is it just normal? Is iTunes opened because that can affect it.

    Try rebooting your computer and using a different cable.

    About your comment whether or nots its your MacBook, I don’t think so. All it was doing at the moment is your iPhone/iPod Touch isn’t connecting to your computer.

    The problems where about getting into DFU mode (If I remember correctly).
