Here is a guide showing you how to jailbreak your iPod Touch 2nd Generation on Windows. The release was originally only for MACS but here is a guide on how to do it in Windows.
EDIT: Shortperson1026 has relesaed an AUTOMATED version of the jailbreak which makes it WAAYY easier to do! Download it HERE
HERE IS ANOTHER VERSION BY PHEONIX THAT IS ABIT EASIER! Make sure you read the readme included and follow the guide written in it STEP BY STEP: DOWNLOAD
A GUI VERSION (A ACTUAL PROGRAM) WAS RELEASED!: HERE
A NEW 4 SECOND JAILBREAK HAS BEEN RELEASED! HAD THE MOST SUCCESS ON IPODTOUCHFANS IN MY OPINION: HERE
HERE is the semi-tethered working jailbreak with a HD video tutorial: CLICK ME
1.) Extract redsn0w lite and XPwn to your Desktop.
2.) Save (or move) the 2.2.1 IPSW into the XPwn folder.
3.) In the rslite101 folder, there should be a FirmwareBundles folder; copy the iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11.bundle into your XPwn\FirmwareBundles\ folder.
4.) Open up a Command Prompt (type cmd in the Search bar if on Vista).
5.) Type the following:
cd C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\XPwn-0.5.7-win32\ ipsw "iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw" "iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Custom_Restore.ipsw" -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar
If you’re running XP, your location will be a bit different (should be C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Desktop\).
Also, if you’re running XP (with PowerToys), Vista, or 7, you can easily navigate to folders in a Command Prompt without using cd.
Simply hold shift, then right click on a folder (here, for example, you’d shift and right click on XPwn-0.5.7-win32), then select Open Command Window here.
This can be done with any other part of this tutorial that involves cd. Thanks, MatthewH12!
6.) Wait for XPwn to finish, it should only take a few minutes.
7.) Extract all files in the iRecovery RAR to your Desktop and open the iRecovery folder, there should be an installer for libusb located here.
If you haven’t already installed libusb, please do so now.
If you’re running Vista or 7, please right click the .exe and select Properties, then click the Compatibility tab, then select Windows XP (Service Pack 2) from the drop-down menu.
After install, a restart may be required.
8.) Open another Command Prompt (or use the one you used before, if it is still up) and type the following:
Again, your location will be different if you’re on XP, see above.
9.) Extract your 2.1.1 iBSS and 2.2.1 iBSS and iBoot.
To do so, right click your 2.1.1 IPSW and select Open with > WinRAR archiver.
Navigate to the Firmware\dfu directory, then drag iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu into your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename it iBSS211.dfu.
Now, open up your custom 2.2.1 IPSW using WinRAR.
First, navigate to the Firmware\dfu folder and drag iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu into your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename is iBSS221.dfu.
Now, navigate to the Firmware\all_flash\all_flash.n72ap.production folder.
Extract iBoot.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 to your iRecovery_SVN folder.
Rename it iBoot221.img3.
10.) Put your iPod into DFU mode (this is out of the scope of this tutorial, sorry).
Bring up your Command Prompt again and execute the following:
iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
Your iPod’s screen should turn white.
If it doesn’t, unplug your iPod and wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in.
11.) In the same Command Prompt, enter the following:
iRecovery -s arm7_stop mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014 mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02 mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0 mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000 mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0 mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300 arm7_go arm7_stop /exit
Just to clarify, you will hit enter after each of these commands.
12.) Restore to your custom firmware using iTunes (hold shift and hit Restore, then select iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11_Custom_Restore.ipsw).
It may hang on “Preparing..” for a long time; just wait it out, it’ll move on eventually.
13.) After your restore is complete, put you iPod into DFU mode, you’ll have to apply the patch again to boot.
You will also have to do these same things each time you boot from now on:
iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
Unplug your iPod, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in.
Your screen should be white now.
Run the following after:
iRecovery -s arm7_stop mw 0x9000000 0xe59f3014 mw 0x9000004 0xe3a02a02 mw 0x9000008 0xe1c320b0 mw 0x900000c 0xe3e02000 mw 0x9000010 0xe2833c9d mw 0x9000014 0xe58326c0 mw 0x9000018 0xeafffffe mw 0x900001c 0x2200f300 arm7_go arm7_stop /sendfile iBSS221.dfu go /exit
Wait for your iPod to reconnect (it should disappear in iTunes, then reappear in a couple seconds).
Run the following:
iRecovery -f iBoot221.img3 iRecovery -s go /exit
14.) Your iPod should now be booting; enjoy you tethered jailbreak.
Also, don’t forget that if you want to reboot your iPod, each time you’ll have to repeat step 13, and step 13 only.
Edit: Please do not PM me right now, I can’t help you.
It’s my birthday today, so people are at my house for my party (that I didn’t even want).
Also, I don’t have a 2G and cannot really troubleshoot that well.
Please ask in the thread or search.
Also, if you think you’ve bricked your device, you haven’t.
Keep trying to enter either restore or DFU mode, there’s always a way to save your device, just don’t panic.
Finally, by following these instructions, you take responsibility for whatever may happen to your iPod.
It is not that dangerous, but it’s not my fault if something fluky were to happen.
Edit 2: If iRecovery won’t work for you, please install this.
