Jailbreak your iPod Touch or iPhone 2.0

THe iPhone 2.0 software has just recently come out, and for those of you on macs, it is extremely easy to jailbreak your device because pwnage tool 2.0 came out a while back. What I am going to do is explain how to easily Jailbreak your device on a windows computer.
First, you will need a couple things.
1) Winpwn (
2) ipod/iphone 2.0 software (google this, I cannot provide a link)

Once you have those two things, you will need to open winpwn, and click "build ispw".

This is where it gets a little tricky. If you have an iPod, then continue reading. If you have an iPhone, then I will refer you to iClarified for their guide on iPhones.


So, if you have come this far, then you have an iPod Touch, the new ipod firmware, winpwn 2.0.x, and you have clicked ispw builder.
Now select the firmware file, and check install cydia.
Now click build ispw on the bottom left.
After a little while, your new ispw will be finished, and you can now click iPwner.
Select the file you just created with ispw builder, and it will pwn itunes to accept custom firmware.
Now place your ipod in DFU mode. If you dont know how to do this, then follow these instructions, otherwise skip the next step.

To enter DFU: Make sure your ipod is on. Now hold both sleep and home for exactly 10 seconds. Then, let go of sleep and continue holding home until itunes says it found your device and it must be restored. Your iPod screen should be completely black. If it shows a connect to itunes logo on its screen then you are in restore mode... not DFU.

Now click ok in iTunes and then shift+click Restore. Then select your new custom firmware file... and wait about 15 minutes.
You now have a shiny new ipod touch with cydia!
