    Help Me!!

    ops sorry. right connect your ipod and open up itunes. once you see your ipod on screen, it should say some thingrestore factory setting? something on those lines, hold Shift and click it then it should let you broswe for the firmware (the one you downloaded) then thats it for the update.

    ok, i have done that
    and its complete

    i have now downloaded blackra1n

    what do i do with that and how do i use it correctly?

    thanks

    i dunno, i'm not 100% sure though, i used redsn0w on the mac i think, basically you install it, hook your ipod up then it'll give you step by step instructions...the hard part is knowing how and when to turn off/on your ipod. (putting it on some mode forgot the name sorry)

    jailbreaking is more useful if you're a developer...or if you just want free apps. jailbreaking is like unlocking the ipod so you can customize and install and write you own apps thats not supported by apple. i think you should ask around and do some more research first
