How to jailbreak iPod Touch 2.0/iPhone 2.0 on Windows XP/Vista.

It is not illegal to jailbeark your iPod Touch/iPhone. It's just not supported by Apple.

WHAT YOU NEED-
iTunes 7.7
Winpwn (download here: http://www.winpwn.com/index.php/Main_Page)
iPod Touch 2.0/iPhone 2.0 Software Update

Connect your iPod/iPhone.

You need to use Winpwn to make a custom version of the iPhone 2.0 software for your iPhone/iPod, so the first thing you need to do is create a custom image using the IPSW Builder. To do this, just fire up Winpwn. Click on Browser .ipsw and select the software update. Then click on IPSW Builder.

if your iPod/iPhone has never been jailborken click on "iPwner"

From the IPSW Builder, tick the Install Cydia checkbox. Don't check YouTube activation fix if you're an official AT&T customer. From IPSW you can also select your own Boot Images click on the Custom Images tab. When your done, click the Build .ipsw button. You'll be prompted to save the custom ipsw file. Choose where where you want to save it and click Save (it defaults to the Winpwn install location). The IPSW Builder will take several minutes to create your custom IPSW image.


Now but your iPod/iPhone in DFU Mode. Watch the video above

Once done, install:

1. In iTunes, Hold down Shift + click on restore
2. Choose your custom software update
3. Wait 10-15 minutes while its updating
