24kpwn patch for Untethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2G is now available which I talked about yesterday, now I am bringing you another tutorial for the full Untethered Jailbreak of your iPod Touch 2G. This time I will be using the GUI Untethered Jailbreak software named Quickfreedom. This is easiest method for the Untethered Jailbreak of iPod Touch 2G, If you have used my previous tethered jailbreak tutorial then it can work upon that so you don’t have to restore to original firmware. As I am writing this my iPod Touch is being restored to custom firmware, and this GUI Untethered Jailbreak software is incredibly easy to use even for beginners.
Pre Requirements for Untethered Jailbreak of iPod Touch 2G
I am writing this tutorial for Windows XP 32 Bit, Windows Vista 32 bit. Developer claims that it may work on 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7 too.
Mac users can use this software using VMware if iTunes is installed on that partition.
Install LibUSB and download original 2.2.1 firmware if you don’t have it.
If you want to use installer and Custom Boot Logo then tick on both and click Create Firmware, Cydia will be included by default.
the firmware file will be saved on desktop with name
DFU Mode one last time:
Yes you have to put your iPod Touch into DFU mode by pressing the power and home button simultaneously for 10 seconds, leave the power button and keep holding the home button for 8-10 more seconds, hear dding sound, leave the home button.
click on Start Pre-Jailbreak -> White Screen
Note: Just try again if you don’t get DFU mode right for the first time, I got it right in my second try.
The iPod is having white screen now restore the custom firmware from iTunes, keep pressing shift and click on Restore button in iTunes, browse to desktop for file Custom Firmware.ipsw, select it and wait for restoring.
This message will pop up:
Your iPod has been restored to factory settings….
and you are done, let your iPod Touch reboot/start automatically, it will take a few seconds.
You can now set this up as a new iPod or restore from backup of previous iPod, I did the restore and it is working great.
