Okay, first upgrade your iPhone/iPod Touch to firmware version 3.0 using iTunes. The update costs $10. Then head over to the dev-team blog here, and download redsn0w. Unzip the download onto your desktop. Find your iPhone/iPod Touch firmware on your computer located

C:\Users\*USERNAME8\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates

on windows.

and here on mac

home/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates

Remember the location of this file. Make sure it is 3.0

Plug your device into iTunes and put your iPhone/iPod Touch in DFU mode by holding the power and home buttons down until the ipod shuts off, then count to 2 and release the power/top button but keep holding onto the home button. It should now be in DFU mode.
Open up the redsn0w app or .exe on mac and windows resectively.

Follow the instructions. Once you get to the part about turning your ipod off, you already did this by putting it into DFU mode so just hit next. Follow the rest of the instructions in redsn0w and your iPod/iPhone should now be jailbroken with 3.0!

This tutorial is as of now, only for Mac. Sorry Windows users, maybe I'll write another tutorial later if you guys want me to.

Okay, so we're going to start off with the requirements. First, you need an iPod Touch 2g (2nd generation) the one with the curved back, and the speaker. Next, you'll need a Mac with the latest Mac OS X Leopard on it installed and ready. Lastly, you'll need a few programs which I will provide the links to. They are free, so no need to worry.

The first download you will need to complete is Pwnage Tool 2.2.5 direct download there. Extract that and leave it off to the side on your desktop. Next, download the here. After that, extract the folder to your desktop. You should have a folder called rslite now on your desktop. Open it up and go to CustomPackages, then right-click or option-click n the CydiaInstaller.bundle and click Show Package Contents. Now drag the Info.plist file to your desktop. You should now have the following files on your desktop: rslite folder, info.plist, and Pwnage Tool.

Next, download the program Untetherizer, located here. Unzip the contents onto your desktop. Then download the 24kpawn patch and unzip that also to your desktop. Now you should have 5 files on your desktop and they are the following in no particular order: Pwnage Tool, Info.plist, rslite folder, Untetherizer, and LLB.n72ap.RELEASE.patch (inside the 24kpawn download).

Open Untetherizer, and click Start Untetherizer. Click "Download Firmware Package" where it will take you to a sharing site. Click "Click here to start downloading" and download the file. Extract the file inside the download to your desktop. It should be called "iPod2,1_2.1.1_5h11a.bundle" and drag this to your desktop. Now, Right-click or option-click on Pwnage Tool, click Show Package Contents, click Contents, Resources, Custom Packages. Then Right click on CydiaInstaller.bundle and click Show Package Contents. Drag the Info.plist from your desktop onto the folder, replacing the original file in that folder. Now, in the Finder window, go back to the folder Resources and find FirmwareBundles and drag the iPod firmware file from your desktop onto your folder, replacing the one already in that folder. Now, plug your iPod Touch 2g into your computer and cancel all iTunes syncing if that starts up. Open Pwnage Tool. Select iPod Touch. Make sure Expert Mode is enabled. On the next screen, pick the firmware that shows up, it should be your current iPod Touch Firmware. In the next screen, click on Custom Logos and make sure that it is unchecked. This is a crucial step. Click the arrows and it should begin making your firmware. Once it is made on your desktop, rename it to Firmware.ipsw.

Make sure that you have the Firmware.ipsw and the LLB..patch on your desktop. On Untetherizer, click on Generate Patched Firmware. DO NOT CLOSE TERMINAL. After terminal is finished, you will now have a file on your desktop called NormalUntetherizedFirmware.ipsw. Set your iPod in DFU Mode. (I'll explain later if you are unsure how to do this). Back in Untetherizer, click "Start DFU Pre-Boot" In iTunes, Right-click on Restore on your iPod and navigate to your firmware on the desktop, the NormalUntether...ipsw firmware. Your iPod Touch will now install the jailbroken firmware onto your iPod. Your iPod will reboot and now you will have your very own jailbroken iPod Touch 2g. Congratulations!

If the users request, I will add some more tutorials for all the great applications that you can download and install through Cydia. Good Luck and i hope your iPod is now successfully Jailbroken. Leave comments if you are unsure how to do a step, or are confused and need clarification on any of the steps. I will be glad to help you with further assistance.

For those enough unfortunate enough to not yet be able to get our network up and running on Ubuntu, this guide is for those who still want to be able to use Avant Window Navigator or AWN. All the links to the dependencies will be included in this short tutorial. This guide is for those running Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10. Also you should make sure that Compiz or Compiz Fusion is enabled and you can figure this out by reading my Compiz Guide. Also follow those instructions if you graphics card is blacklisted.

First visit here and download the avant-window-navigator, libawn0, and the awn-manager. Then visit here and select a mirror to download from. After that, head over to this page and scroll down to the file download section and download libpango1.0-0-1.18.3. Then go to this page to download libpango0-1.0 common. Finally head over to this last page and download the tzdata package which is optional depending on if you need it.

Now that everything is downloaded lets start installing. First install the libc6 which may or may not need/conflict with tzdata. If so then install tzdata first. After installing libc6, install libpango0-1.0. Then libpango0-1.0 common and finally libawn0. Then install AWN and its manager, awn-manager. Everything should install okay without any errors for dependencies if you are running Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10. Then go up to Applications > Accessories > Avant Window Navigator. To configure, right click on the dock and select preferences. Now enjoy your new Mac-like dock. To add shortcuts, drag the icon from the desktop or the menu bar onto AWN.

CozyQuest. Developed by Nils Munch. One of the most interactive developers with the community he developed. Not only has Mr. Munch created the ONLY true MMORPG on the iPhone/iPod Touch, but he did it well. This game has it all and for only $5, this app can be yours. There are continued updates on the server side making the update process through the tedious App Store almost nonexistent. Nils can update the server and within seconds, every app will be updated. This game is still being actively and continuously expanded at a rapidly growing rate. The community for this amazing game is growing strong and the app itself is selling wonderously.

Now for a few words about this game. It is the first real MMORPG for the iPhone and here's why. A quote from

This game has NOTHING to do with:
Collecting member/clan/recruit codes.
Spamming/Inviting friends to earn points.
Having 2.039 shotguns in hope that they all will give you a attack bonus (sorry munchkins).
Buying stuff for real money (!?!) Once you bought the game, you wont have to spend another dime.
There you go. Right there seemed to prove it all. Unlike the other iMob Online, iMafia, iVampire and such, this game is a real MMORPG where codes and shotguns aren't what help you advance through the game rather than developing your own character through quests and then later battling NPCs and soon to be PVP. The game started out with one town, but within 1-2 weeks, it already has an expanded map. One additional town has been created and who knows how many more Mr. Nils Munch will add. If you are a fan of World of Warcraft, then this is the game for you. The mobile version. You won't regret this fine game that is continually being developed at a rapidly exponential rate.

Hey all,
I know we just started out, but we would really like to make this a successful blog so, all you iPhone crazies out there, you tell us. What is your favorite app on the App Store? Start a discussion, we know you won't regret it.


Looking for a good, no, great Twitter client for your iPhone/iPod Touch can be a challenge to some users as they are not certain what features and functions they want. Most Twitter apps have very good features in one or two areas, but only a select few can put all the pieces together. This app provides a great interface that is pleasing to the eyes, support for multiple accounts, the ability to tweet with pictures and location tags, favorites, trends, search (including nearby), and better private messaging support. One feature I have found helpful is the messages tab. It enables you to not only view your inbox, but your sent also! This makes it easy to view those complex codes you sent to toodledo or Google Calendar that you just can't remember at the moment. This app is a great Twitter app avaliable on the App Store for a price of $2.99. Buy it here. Post your thoughts about this app in the comments.
