  1. Launch iBooty from your desktop.
  2. Select your device from dropdown list on bottom-right and click Start

  1. I feel so outdated with all these Jailbreak software already (note that I have an iPod touch 2nd gen, so…) Makes me look like a newbie. Anyway, my friend introduced me to iBooty and he even demonstrated how to use it when you jailbreak your iPhone. Works really fast, and it is quite user-friendly.
