    The jailbreak for 3.0 on the iPod Touch 2G was just released, and I got it to work so here's a quick tutorial.

    Thing's you need:

    1.
    iPhone OS 3.0 ispw (Get it from iTunes, or the "usual places")
    2. Redsn0w 0.7.1
    3. Windows (Didn't try on Mac yet, no linux version as of yet)
    4. An iPod Touch with iPhone OS 3.0 already installed
    ______________________________________________________________________


    **Tutorial**
    1. Download Redsn0w and extract it to a place where you can find it (eg Desktop)

    2. Plug in your iPod Touch and put it into DFU mode.

    3. Go into the Redsn0w folder.

    *Vista/Windows 7 Users only**
    Set the compatibility mode of the Redsn0w app to Windows XP Service Pack 2.

    Vista - Right Click the redsn0w app and click properties --> compatibility tab --> check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box and make sure the drop down bar is on "Windows XP Service Pack 2".




    4. Run Redsn0w. At the first screen click the browse button and navigate to the location of your iPhone OS 3.0.ispw. Select it and after it processes the firmware hit next.

    5. At the next screen, keep the "Install Cydia" box checked if you want Cydia to come with your jailbreak. (Most do)

    6. Hit next. Now make sure the iTunes process is terminated in the windows Taskbar. Terminate iTunes helper if it's there as well. (I don't know if this is mandatory, but I needed to do this.)

    7. Hit next again, and Redsn0w will jailbreak your iPod. Don't unplug your iPod Touch until it gets back to the lockscreen.

    8. Done! Enjoy the 3.0 jailbreak.


    Tut made by me. If people are struggling with this then I'll add pictures.

    nice tut i honestly havent been fallowing this so this is all news to me.

    Anyway i think its fair to give warning and say be careful on cydia because their are alot of apps that arn't compadible with 3.0 and will black screen your ipod if you install them and you will need to DFU restore witch is a pain in the *** after a while.

    EDIT also for people wondering this makes youtube work if you pirated your 3.0

    I think I'll wait until Cydia becomes fully integrated with 3.0. Thanks for the heads up.

    Not so much that, Cydia has been upgraded fine. It's just some of the developers who put their apps on Cydia haven't bothered to update.

    ^^^ Yeah you're right. But developers are constantly updating their apps to work on the new firmware. But personally I'd trade the battery life boost for most of the apps that aren't compatible with 3.0 yet (except Mewseek Pro 2.0 :frown:).

    Glad my tut is working for you guys.

    To be honest the only reason you need to do this is because appstore applications will only be working on 3.0 soon. But nice guide anyway, it works perfect. Jailbroke 3.0 2g iPod Touch, on 32bit vista ultimate.

    Thanks for the tut, also compatibility mode is unnecessary.
