Why can't I jailbreak??!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my sister gave me her iPod touch (3rd gen) as a birthday present (she already has an iPad/iPhone4 lol) and I decided I wanted to jailbreak. However, for some reason, I can't jailbreak with any of the iPod frimawares with redsn0w. Any ideas to what i'm doing wrong?

Restore it then Download the latest IPSW for the iPod, then use redsn0w,

On what firmware are you on? 4.3.3 can't be currently jailbroken (actually you can but the jailbrake will reset everytime you reboot the iPod, so stick with 4.3 for now)

The problem redsnow shows is that you haven't selected the correct IPSW file. This file should contain the firmware of your device. What redsnow does is that it patches that firmware, and then installs it on your device, replacing the stock one.

The firmware should be located here:
C:\\Users\\USERNAMEHERE\\AppData\\Roaming\\Apple Computer\\iTunes\\iPod Software Updates\\

BUT, it won't show up if iTunes hasn't downloaded it. So, if you updated the iPod with iTunes on your computer, the file should be there.
If it isn't then you need to download it from the internet (search felixbruns firmware on google and its the first link).
If you have 4.3.3 already and want to jailbreak now, the I recommend you downgrade, and then jailbreak.

this may sound a bit overwhelming, but it actually is very simple. Hope it solves your problems!

it's not 4.3 right now. I believe it's at 4.2 or 4.1. And I downloaded many of these, but none seem to work

Thanks. I seem to have got it to work. It took like 4 different versions to get the right software...I think. It's taking forever to upload the ramdisk

A few moments ago the new version of redsnow was released, so you can now jailbreak 4.3.3 if you want to update the iPod on iTunes. Good luck!
