  1. homie says:

    anyone try this yet? does this 5h!t work?

  2. Aaron Romine says:

    And this is why I will buy an iPod Touch :-) Bring it on!

  3. 1544 says:

    Will this void your warranty?

  4. bgizzle says:

    @1544:
    It is a software modification and is reversible unless something goes wrong. That being said, if you are concerned about voiding your warranty it may be better to avoid any forms of modifications

  5. G S says:

    Do you think the Calendar will work, too, and then be able to sync?

  6. Tin says:

    Anyone will get an iPod Touch on the day it release? I hope Apple will not do anything to stop people modifying the iPod Touch.

  7. onTHEedge says:

    does this work from windows or only on osx

  8. Dustin says:

    Apple has said in the past (atleast for other iPod’s) that installing things like iPod linux on it does not void the warranty.

  9. Josh Minzner says:

    Apple said that they will not intentionally prevent people from installing native apps on the touch and iphone. They do say that they will not test software updates with home made apps.

  10. sloth says:

    Can anyone point to the proper restore image?

  11. tbirdsaw says:

  12. tbirdsaw says:

    I haven’t been able to get this to work yet…

  13. Norm says:

    I assume no one has an iPod Touch yet. I expect the iPhone jailbreak program to work fine, since it is based on the mechanism that iTunes uses to talk to the iPhone, which should be the same for the Touch. The restore image for the touch will be available once the touch is — it will be the same one that iTunes uses if it needs to restore the touch.

    The thing I’m worried about is in the system preferences (settings). The preference app won’t know about any of these applications you’ve added so you won’t be able to set up email etc. I suppose you could install the preferences app from the iPhone and the phone preferences might not be a problem since there’s no phone hardware. People might need to modify the iPhone or iPod preferences app in some way though, and that would be harder.

  14. Photinus says:

    I’m attempting to use independance to jailbreak my iPod Touch right now, Doesnt seem to be working. Been sitting on waiting for jailbreak for a while now. Gonna reset it here momentarily.

    Good news, I’ve managed to crash it pretty well a couple times and it always restores through itunes.

  15. freaktheclown says:

    Same here. I hit jailbreak in Independence and waited about 15 minutes, it was still sitting there. Reset it and iTunes opened and said it was in recovery mode. Anyone know how to get OUT of recovery mode?

  16. multigl says:

    you’ll have to perform a full recover in itunes.

    Do not try this yet, iNdependence hangs and does not complete the operation — you won’t permanently damage your touch, but you will have to restore it from itunes.

  17. Pentti says:

    This sucks. I tried it with my ipod Touch 16GB and it works wonderfully, but then when I sync My iPod to the iTunes it doesnt anymore work. I think iTunes takes the files off there somehow.

  18. freaktheclown says:

    That’s what I ended up doing and right now I’m not gonna sync all my stuff back for a bit ’til the jailbreaking gets figured out. I doubt it will take all too long.

  19. bgizzle says:

    Hey everyone we just set up a forum for you to discuss this more easily… head over to the thread here: http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1

  21. PeterE says:

    to those who got it to work: when it was working, were you able to access settings for mail? I mean, that’s kind of key if you want to use mail…

    thanks – very exciting!

  22. Greg says:

    Hangs when I try to jailbreak it as well. =(

  23. Paul says:

    I think we need a new firmware link. The one that’s provided gives you 3A101a, but my Touch has 3A100a, which gives me an “unknown firmware” when using iNdependence. iTunes says there’s no new firmware to install, so I can’t bump the Touch up to the newer one. Suggestions?

  24. Greg says:

    Mine is currently running 3101a

  25. freaktheclown says:

    Weird: my Touch has 3A101a.

  26. Paul says:

    Nevermind. Doing a Restore from within iTunes brought me up to snuff. Still sitting here waiting for it to be Jailbroken though.

    Spin spin spin….

  27. Nelson says:

    Anybody had any luck? Maybe the root password for the Ipod touch is different from the Iphone

  28. Josh says:

    This does not work – I tried it on a brand new iPod Touch that I bought today in Michigan.

  29. Carlos says:

    Check out the new version of iNdependence! You can load from there new Apps and perhaps it DOES work! (Don’t have my iPod touch yet)

  30. Nick says:

    According to TUAW this has been tryed but it doesn’t work. Go buy an iPhone!

  31. Paul says:

    There hasn’t been a new version of iNdependence since yesterday, and it’s already been proven not to work. I submitted a ticket with the programmer to ask if he plans to support the Touch.

  32. Chris says:

    I’m kind of curious how people are testing this on an iPod THAT ISN’T AVAILABLE UNTIL THE END OF THIS MONTH

  33. Zach says:

    @Chris

    maybe because its already out? Like myself or others who have posted.

  34. David says:

    Too bad that it has been in a lot of Apple stores for over a day now. CHECK YOUR FACTS.

  35. Brandon says:

    Went to the apple store in SF and got mine on the 13th. Man I can’t wait for this thing to get hacked.

  36. Martin says:

    Just got my iPod Touch at the Palo Alto Apple store on University avenue. The iPhone dev team is on the iPod touch now, and there should be a jailbreak update shortly. I have already seen a iPod Touch w/ Mail.app installed this morning, so I know it’s possible.

  37. xxdesmus says:

    Picked up mine yesterday as well.

    Going to try the jailbreak (and installing 3rd party apps now) :)

  38. Mike says:

    How do you reverse or get it back to factory settings?

    I want to make sure that I can retain the warranty even after doing this.

    Thanks
    Mike, Mondaysmailbox.com

  39. xxdesmus says:

    I have firmware 3A100a … why doesn’t it see any updates to the 3A101a firmware that other people are reporting?

  40. xxdesmus says:

    Mine shows up as firmware version 3A100a, other people are showing 3A101a …why doesn’t iTunes show any updates then?

  41. Macer says:

    @ xxdesmus how are you installing the 3rd party apps?

  42. Paul says:

    xxdesmus: no idea, but if you choose the “Restore” option in iTunes, it’ll get the new one. Not that it does much to Jailbreak it (yet).

  43. betasp says:

    If you are worried and the warranty in the slightest, DON’T TRY HACKING IT. Hacking is not for you.

  47. TheSuper says:

    please don’t try this because it does not work – it can ruin your ipod touch !!!
    wait till there is a working hack out there. this DOES NOT WORK !!!

  48. Alex shamoose says:

    How do you use the restore image to restore the iPod Touch? Just wondering…

  49. xxdesmus says:

    @Macer I never said I was installing 3rd party apps (yet). I’m still waiting like the rest of us :)

    @Paul I’ll wait and see if I need the newer firmware…I imagine if I restore it will wipe out all my settings and bookmarks (etc) right?

  50. Paul says:

    xxdesmus: Oh yes. It nukes every little thing on there. =)

    Has anyone been able to get this to work?

  54. poop-is-brown says:

    The Ipod touch will be hacked soon enough. I think in a bout 1-3 weeks. Its just like the PSP, you just have to give the developers some time, and BAM. You’ll have Google Maps before you know it.

  55. Paul says:

    Marc: trust me, when it finally does start working, you’ll hear about it. It’ll be news, and not just here.

  56. Marc says:

    Thanks! Looking fwd to my iTouch. Ordered it on 9/5 with these high hopes ;)

  86. Robert Booth, Seattle says:

    This is SOOOOO cool….my IPT is Jailbraked!
    Had to take the original back to Apple Store and INSIST on a return cause i had upgraded to 1.1.2 and couldnt downgrade. But the new IPT was native 1.1.1. Followed the directions and after the upgrade to 1.1.2 there was Installer just like promised. COOL COOL COOL.

  87. Robert Booth, Seattle says:

    still cannot figure out how to sftp into my IPT. Am using CyberDuck. I enter the IP address I find in Settings/WiFi/Little Blue Button. Port is set to 22. Could it be the wifi modem i am connected to doesnt allow me to feed back in?

  88. Spongy says:

    I jail breaked my Ipod and everything was pretty sweet. It would freeze every so often but the Ipod restarts itself automatically. However, i just downloaded the new V 1.1.3 patch. This patch deletes all the Jailbreaked programs and the installer. When i tried rejailbreaking, it wouldnt work. I dont know if its just me, but just to warn you guys, dont get the patch if u want to jailbreak.

    If you do hack the ipod touch , can you get rid of the hack by restoring your ipod through itunes?

  90. mike says:

    Try out jailbreakme.com it workedperfectly for me all u do is download

  91. phil tam says:

    you got to first downgrade your ipod to 1.1.1 where as it starts with 1.1.2 for new buyers.

    to downgrade, open itunes and then SHIFT CLICK restore. then browse ur computer for the firmware. You have to google ipod touch firmware 1.1.1 to find it.

    once its 1.1.1, go to jailbreakme.com and install app snap where itll crash browser and it will restart. From there, install BSD Systems and OPEN SSH then ur good to go.

    hey phil tam what is or were do i get bsd systems from?

    ok so what the deal with this whole jailbreak thing. just a couple questions please answer

    1. if you jailbreak your ipod touch and void the warranty can you simply reverse this by restoring it or is that not how it works
    2. Does doing this change your space on the ipod or just change the internal system.{how does it work]
    3. how can i prevent my ipod from being bricked afterwards
    4. and the last one is if you use the latest jailbreak via http://www.jailbreakme.com can you still use itunes or do you have to change something
    SORRY THIS IS ALOT OF QUESTIONS BUT I WOULD BE VERY THANKFUL IF SOMEONE COULD ANSWER THEM FOR ME

    This doesn’t work on my iPod touch, which I just got yesterday (Christmas). I need to downgrade 1.1.1 but I have yet to find it. But as is, it sees a tiff file and that’s the end of it. It doesn’t crash Safari, it doesn’t download anything, and it doesn’t make the iPod go to slide to unlock. Still working on it.

  99. brownie says:

    maybe because your ipod doesnt have the firmware 1.1.1
    your ipod needs to be version 1.1.1
    jailbreak wont work on 1.1.2

    I have tried numerous ways to get my ipod jailbroken and none work. I do not know what is wrong with it. At first, i thought i was doing something wrong but, after trying it numerous times, I have decided that it’t not me. Maybe it is Apple? Maybe they figured out what people were doing and fixed the new touches so you can’t jailbreak them. I don’t know but, i wanted to jailbreak it and now im disappointed…

    Anyone know how to fix my problem?
    Email me at jeffreyelevinson@yahoo.com

  108. Jake says:

    I bet Apple doesn’t really care if you hack out their hardware as long as it doesn’t hurt them financially.

  109. wesley says:

    you CAN jailbrake 1.1.2, i have my ipod jailbroken and it works perfect!
    all you gotta do is downgrade your ipod 1.1.2 to 1.1.1, to do this you download this file => http://www.megaupload.com/?d=V7H8X2QQ
    after downloading this you go into itunes; hold shift and press ‘search for update’, you select the file you just downloaded and let itunes do it’s job.
    now you have 1.1.1, you go (with you ipod, safari) to http://www.jailbreakme.com,
    you click ‘install appsnapp’; and then your ipod will reboot, just let him do his thing, after he reboots, you slide to unlock and click on the new icon (installer)
    here you click tweaks 1.1.1, and dowload oktoprep.
    after the download, you go back into itunes and search for update (don’t hold shift anymore ;) ) the 1.1.2 is the latest so you update to 1.1.2;
    after updating, you’ll see that the icon installer is gone…
    but don’t wory, we’ll make it come back :D
    just go to http://rapidshare.com/files/71626429/1.1.2_Jailbreak.rar.html and download this file; after downloading; extract the file into a new folder you will create. Now go into that new folder and click windows.bat; let the pc do it’s job again, and you’ve got your ipod jailbroken!
    now you see on your ipod the icon installer again; so go download what you want!
    if something is nog clear, just reply or send me an email => welseytje@hotmail.com; i’ll be pleased to help you! xD

    [...] notes were worked out on a jailbroken iPod Touch firmware 1.1.1 but my guess is the iPhone and jailbroken Touches circa 1.1.2. and later [...]

    does anyone kno if this will work with the 1.1.3 version?

  116. Petch says:

    anyone no of any 1.1.3 jailbreaks????

  117. Spaceman Spiff says:

    If you upgraded to 1.1.3 without knowing that you would lose your apps then follow the following instructions to reset it to 1.1.1.

    1. turn it off (Hold sleep then move red slider)
    2. connect to USB and run iTunes
    3. press both Sleep and Home buttons for 10 seconds
    4. release Sleep and keep pressing Home for another 10 seconds then release
    5. iTunes will recognize iPod in restore mode but THIS TIME you can restore to 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 without “uknown error”.
    6. Shift-Click on restore
    7. Select the 1.1.1 software let iTunes restore to 1.1.1
