Tethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Gen Windows Step by Step

What you'll need:
redsn0w lite
XPwn

iRecovery and libusb
2.1.1 IPSW
2.2.1 IPSW
________
What you may need:
If for some reason your iPod will refuse to get a white screen when it is supposed to
download this to end iPod Services and Mobile Services(should make it work)
End Services batch file

-Submitted by Username: jake fox
Thank you.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON FIRMWARE 2.2.1 BEFORE YOU START

1.) Extract redsn0w lite and XPwn to your Desktop

2.) Save (or move) the 2.2.1 IPSW into the XPwn folder and rename it OriginalFW.ipsw















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.) In Command Prompt, cd to the Xpwn directory and do "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar"
Some people are having trouble with the cd command. Just type cd, then a space, and then drag the little folder icon of where you want to cd(so in our case drag the Xpwn folder into the command line) in this into the command prompt and press enter.
Should look something like this after you drag the folder in.










IF YOU GET AN ERROR HERE SAYING "COULD NOT FIND IPSW" take out the .ipsw after OriginalFW in the xpwn folder


After you have your command prompt looking like that type in "ipsw OriginalFW.ipsw patchedFW.ipsw -s 700 bundles\Cydia.tar"

Should say hashing ipsw





















6.) Put your iPod Touch in DFU mode

Step 1. Turn off your iPod.

Step 2. Press and hold home button for 5 seconds then continue holding home button and press power button for 10 seconds

Step 3. release the power button but continue holding the home button down.

Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode..

IF YOU SEE APPLE LOGO YOU DID IT WRONG. YOUR iPOD SHOULD BE A BLACK SCREEN WHEN YOU'RE ON DFU MODE*****

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:
Code:
cd C:\Users\yourusername\Desktop\iRecovery\iRecovery_SVN
or you could type cd, space, and drag the iRecovery_SVN folder into the command prompt










IF YOU GET A SIDE-BY-SIDE ERROR CLICK THIS LINK AND INSTALL C++


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 PatchedFW.IPSW from the xpwn folder 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.)Bring up your Command Prompt again and execute the following:

Code:
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.)11.) In the same Command Prompt, enter the following:
Code:
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 PatchedFW.ipsw firmware using iTunes (Hold shift and press restore and click the patchedfw.ipsw that is in the Xpwn folder)

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:

Code:
iRecovery -f iBSS211.dfu
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
iRecovery -f iBSS221.dfu
iRecovery -s
go
/exit
iRecovery -f iBoot221.img3
iRecovery -s
go
/exit
If you iPod is not recognized after sending the 2.1.1 iBSS, unplug it and plug it back in, then try iRecovery -s.
You may need to unplug your iPod after sending each iBSS, also.

(SORRY I DON'T HAVE PICTURES FOR THIS STUFF. I DON'T HAVE AN iPOD TOUCH 2nd Generation So i showed you as much as I could without it)

14.) Your iPod should now be booting; enjoy you tethered jailbreak.

I'd like to give credit to jfb392 from iPod Touch Fans and AriX from the same site.

    Duffman, Put your iPod into DFU mode while it looks like it's bricked. Your ipod is not bricked. and the "No ipod found" is because your not in DFU mode.

  22. fuck my iPod is stuffed wont turn on windows is not rekonizing it

    ReplyDelete
  23. "f*** my iPod is stuffed wont turn on windows is not rekonizing it"

    Your ipod wont turn on because it's the patched ISPW making it not turn on, This is normal just follow my DFU Troubleshoot.

  30. hey jeffery, in ur OriginalFW.ipsw take out the .ipsw and it will be fixed!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I found out on my own how to fix if iRecovery won't find your iPod, even if its in DFU.

    I am on Vista x64, by the way.

    What I did was uninstalled Libusb. Then I went to where iRecovery.exe was, right clicked it, and went to properties. Then go to compatibility and checked "Run this program as an administrator".
