For Help-Key this week (now on Thursday’s, just like LOST), I’d planned to show you how to Jailbreak a 16GB iPod Touch, the one thing the automatic Jailbreaking apps can’t do yet, but I ended up bricking mine. Fortunately, I found a video that details exactly how to do it, and it seems to work fine. While I continue to try to reset mine to factory condition, please enjoy the above video with a few tips from me after the jump.
You’ll need to have your iPod in Jailbroken 1.1.2 mode, which you can learn how to do here.
Make sure you’ve got your iPod Touch plugged into a USB port and iTunes is disabled. This is where I failed, my battery died mid-way through the process. Don’t be like me, I’m not a roll model.
Also, make sure you’ve got a reliable internet connection. The downloads can take awhile, but the faster and more noise-free your connections are, the easier this will be.
It helps if you have a cold beer handy.
I’m going to try again, I’ll report back when it’s done.
