    I have jailbroken my iphone 3G as this tutorial describes and I also have Cydia installed. But when I sync some apps with Itunes I still get the error 0xE8008001. So I think something went wrong. What could I do??

    Thx in advance,

  3. desmond says:

    will this work for 3rd gen if not does any one no were ican jail break my ipod touch 3rd gen 3.1.3 on windows vista and what do u man by MC models

    • Reshadat says:

      MC models means 3rd generation iPods (and some late 2nd generation models too). No this method won't work for 3rd generation iPod models.
      You'll need to wait for new jailbreaking tools. I'll update the site once they are available.

  4. Robert says:

    Do you need to run it as administrator in windows Vista? Or do you have to run it as windows XP?

  17. Mustahsan_ali3434 says:

    redsnow hang my ipodtouch and wite wait for reboot which take too much time but doesnot go further

  18. D--FU! says:

    The instructions for getting it into DFU mode suck that’s why you guys can’t get it to reboot.

    In order to enter DFU mode, just hold down power + home button for ~ 5 seconds. Then Release the power button while still holding down home. Keep holding this down until you see on the screen a USB with arrow pointing at iTunes icon.

  19. Faceplants says:

    D-FU that was exactly my problem and I would guess many other people’s issue. I had to force the iPhone off (power + home for 5 secs) then powered back on into recovery mode and the install continued
