Jailbreak iPod Touch 2.1

Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Friday, September 12, 2008

Finally, a jailbreak for the iPod Touch 2.1 firmware is released! Thanks to jfb392, Zombiekiller, and QuickPWN for helping release this iPod Touch 2.1 jailbreak. This jailbreak is a bit complicated, so if you're not an expert with computers/computer software then this isn't for you. If you really want to jailbreak your iPod Touch 2.1 then follow the below instructions. Or you can just wait until the iPod Touch 2.1 GUI jailbreak comes out, which can take weeks.

iPod Touch 2.1 Jailbreak

To jailbreak your iPod Touch 2.1 firmware, you must first be running a jailbroken firmware and be able to SSH into it.

1. SSH into your iPod Touch and download a backup copy of your MobileInstallation file from /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileInstallation.framework

2. Download iPod Touch 2.1, shift-click restore in iTunes to install it.

3. Download QuickPWN, and launch the QuickPWN.exe file. Follow the instructions in there until you get the "Your Device has successfully been PWNED" message at the end.

4. Once your iPod Touch reboots, your iPod Touch 2.1 is jailbroken, except you won't have Installer/Cydia just yet. Follow the below instructions to get these apps on there.

5. Download Total Commander and the T-Pot plugin:

6. Launch Total Commander, and navigate to /System/Library/PrivateFrameWorks/MobileInstallation.framework

7. Replace the MobileInstallation file with the one you downloaded in the beginning

That's it! Reboot your iPod Touch 2.1 and you will see Installer and Cydia. Congratulations you now have a jailbroken iPod Touch 2.1.

nay its too tideous, i'll just stick to 1.1.5 =D

can i do it with winscp?

i meant i can ssh with winscp?

Works GREAT!!!!! Thanks!

just for kicks, im going to try this on an iphone 3G...

It bloody works!!! I must admit I wasn't sure it would lol

Followed the instructions as above, didn't use winscp as you'd need openssh installed for that to work.

Works like a charm!...

Just one thing, instead of using Total comander.. you can use DiskAid, it's easier and more friendly.

will this work for the iphone?

Yes, I'd also like to know if this works for the iPhone... can't see why not!

I need the jailbreak to add bigboss's tmobile edge hack back to the iphone after I upgrade to 2.1 via cydia.
