Jailbreak iPod Touch 2.0 [Windows/Linux/Mac]

Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Tuesday, July 22, 2008

The iPhone Dev Team released PWNAGE 2.0, but it only works for the MAC. WinPWN or ZiPhone may be working on a jailbreak that works with Windows, but it doesn't seem like it will be released any time soon.

View the below iPod Touch tutorial to learn how you can jailbreak your iPod Touch 2.0 with either a Windows, Linux, or Mac operating system! This is not an automated method, but it works.

1. Download the XPWN binaries from the below link:

(If you're a Windows user download Windows binaries, if you're a Mac user download Mac binaries, and if you're a Linux user download Linux binaries)

2. If you downloaded the Windows Binaries, extract the content in "XPwn-0.3.0-win32" to the "C:\XPwn\" folder.

You will find a file there named "ipsw.exe" and various other folders named "bundles", "FirmwareBundles", and more.

3. Find the firmware 2.0 file (iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw)
downloaded by iTunes. It is located in "[User App Data]\Apple
Computers\iTunes\iPod Software Update". Copy it to the XPwn folder located in "C:\XPwn".

4. Launch Command Prompt (Start -> Run ->CMD)

5. In Command Prompty type "cd C:\XPwn" to go to the XPwn folder

6. Type the below code in Command Prompt and press enter.

Code: ipsw iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw iPod_2.0_Custom.ipsw -nobbupdate bundles/Cydia.tar
7. It will take some time for the custom firmware file to be created.

XPwn could crash during this operation on the "start create restore options"
step. You can try restarting computer and trying again, or try it on a different computer. On Vista or XP you may try to set the compatibility mode on the ipsw.exe file to Windows 2000.

8. When the windows prompt come back to "C:\XPwn>" the custome firmware file has been made. The custom firmware file "iPod_2.0_Custom.ipsw" is in the same directory C:\XPwn.


9. Make sure your iPod is disconnected and iTunes is turned off.

10. In Command Prompt type:

Code: itunespwn iPod_2.0_Custom.ipsw
It should finish quickly:

11. Connect iPod and put it in recovery mode. View the below image to see how to do this.

12. Open the iTunes program,and click shift restore, then select the "iPod_2.0_Custom.ipsw" file.

Hey, I am having a problem with step 2. Instead of "XPwn-0.3.0-win32" I get "XPwn-0.3.4-win32" Can you tell me if this a problem?

In addition, can you please tell me where to save the file, because when i run Command Prompt, it says
"The system cannot find the path specified" Can you please help me?

Hello Alex,

Please try Win PWN, it's a free application and it's all GUI-based so you can easily click and jailbreak your iPod Touch 2.0 firmware.

Could someone just upload the custom ipsw file for all to use? It'd be the same for all of us iPos 2.0 user, wouldn't it?

I followed the steps described, but I always get an Error 6 in iTunes, when I whant to apply the Custom Firmware

@m3lange: I think it would be the same, perhaps you can find a friend and try it.

@ErnstZweifel: Yes, a lot of users have been getting errors. Make sure you put the iPod Touch in DFU mode, and not in recovery mode. Also make sure that you make the ipsw.exe file compatible with Windows XP and run it as administrator.

can some tell me what to do after I've downloaded the files. My computer is a Mac
