Dear iphoneheat

hi i just got ipod touch from my brother i don’t it’s 3g or 2g
how to know it?

Billy February 6, 2010, 6:19 am

Dear Iphone Heat,

I have an Ipod Touch 2G (Non MC model) and I am on OS 2.2

I am not able to download the 3.0 OS or 3.1 OS through the link on this site and Apple is requesting for payment though itunes.

How to upgrade to at least 3.0 without having to pay for the OS?

iDon'tHaveAUsername May 13, 2011, 11:13 pm

Dear Billy, you torrent.
Either search Google or The Pirate Bay for the appropriate software/firmware.
Connect your iPod to iTunes.
When in iTunes, select/click your iPod.
Hold Shift.
Click Restore.

Then, Jailbreak.
You’re welcome.

vinichiexv February 6, 2010, 4:11 pm

my ipod touch 2g was upgraded to firmware 3.1.3 i try to jailbreak it using redsnow 0.9.4 but i dont know if it will work it’s still waiting for reboot

BiLAL April 30, 2011, 11:36 am

to fix this all you have to do is when it says “waiting for reboot” hold power and home buttons untill it? starts loading everything…
After getting success please don’t forget to pray for mE .

dear iphone heat,

how fast is it supposed to reboot and do i have to still hold the home button after it starts jailbreaking

TramelBrad March 27, 2010, 3:19 am

do i have to restore my ipod touch before running the jailbreak because if i restore i will lose my current apps and it is to much work to get it back. i have an ipod touch 2g non mc and 3.1.3 and i have everything needed for the jailbreak, but my only question is that can i jailbreak without restoring or i have to because i dont want to. and if its tethered how do i rebbot it if i accidently turn it off. do i have to restore because it doesnt say i have to in the tutorial. please reply and contact me at my email….. pleaseeeee!!! [email protected]

iPhoneHeat March 27, 2010, 11:40 am

If you’re already @ 3.1.3 then there’s no need to..

MicroChip123 July 26, 2010, 8:54 pm

chester March 28, 2010, 9:44 am

this doesnt really have anything to do with the jailbreak, but whenever i open the file after i click the link it opens in notepad. I have a 2G iPod Touch model number starts with MB. Could anybody help me with this?

Japps_1 April 16, 2010, 2:34 pm

What up?

Lordsori April 19, 2010, 10:02 pm

I am new with this stuff, but when I followed the process I have some doubts:
* After finishing with the redsn0w my Ipod touch 1g remains for a long time (around 10 min) like a brick, after this time the screen fully fade out and then I can do a reset, but nothing happens. I do not have the cydia icon.
Pleas help

Godfred30 May 7, 2010, 9:26 am

please help me how do i know if my ipod touch 2g is a non MC version or is not a newer version.i want to jailbreak my ipod touch but as there is a warning i want to be sure i have the NON MC version before i go ahead

iPhoneHeat May 7, 2010, 2:30 pm

There’s no need to worry abt it anymore..

simply use Spirit jailbreak.. checkout the iPhone jailbreak guide.. and follow the iTouch 3G guide (same steps for all devices)

datboi May 20, 2010, 11:33 am

iPhoneHeat May 21, 2010, 12:44 am

datboi May 22, 2010, 4:53 am

I have red sn0w nd Sprint the red. Do reboot nd sprint says its missing dl file

Niels May 21, 2010, 8:09 pm

Huh!? It didn’t work. I did exactly what you did with my Ipod Touch 3G 3.1.3. and it said it was done. Perfect, I thought, but when I checked it out, there was no change?

Please help me!!


iPhoneHeat May 22, 2010, 5:14 am

Then try spirit jailbreak

daftpunk May 21, 2010, 11:10 pm

how will i know if my ipod touch 3g is an mc model? and does this work for 3.1.3? thanks and appreciate it!

iPhoneHeat May 22, 2010, 4:48 am

Use Spirit Jailbreak

Exkrazi May 25, 2010, 7:24 am

i cant find the provided 3.1.2 firmware

rosenater May 26, 2010, 7:12 am

A friend has an iphone 2g that is on OS 1.1.2, it’s AT&T
what is the best way to jailbreak/unlock? Does the OS need to be updates to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3?–then i know how to do it with blackrain—but I have seem the comments on redsnow 0.9.4 and spirit….advice?

iPhoneHeat May 26, 2010, 10:47 pm

go for RedSn0w with latest firmware..
for Spirit you must have home screen access on ur iPhone (Not Stuck at emergency calling screen)

cmb June 10, 2010, 1:02 am

During step 4, how do i “provide it the downloaded firmware 3.1.2”? How do i find the file??

iPhoneHeat June 10, 2010, 2:00 pm

checkout the iPhone Firmware category.. everything is there

Chirigami July 3, 2010, 3:19 am

I’m trying to jailbreak my iPod Touch 1G 3.1.3
It doesn’t recognize any of the firmware I provide. You have only iPHONE firmware 3.1.2, but I tried that firmware anyways. Didn’t work. I downloaded iPod Touch firmware 3.1.2 from some other site, and it won’t recognize it either.
What am I doing wrong? I’m using redsn0w 0.9.3 exactly as you said…

iPhoneHeat July 3, 2010, 9:45 am

make sure the firmware is 3.1.2 because it can’t recognize OS 3.1.3

Chirigami July 3, 2010, 9:53 am

Yup, I’m totally positive about it. It’s iPod1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw and I’ve downloaded many many maaany copies, just in case I had a corrupted file. It keeps saying “Unable to recognize IPSW”

TheScottyTurner August 6, 2010, 9:50 pm

This is my first jailbreak attempt, I have a iPod touch 2.2 (MB model) could someone tell me how to download iPod firmware 3.1.2.

raye September 1, 2010, 11:19 am

just wondering….do you have a jailbreak program for firmwares 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2?

raye September 1, 2010, 11:20 am

just wondering….do you have a jailbreak program for firmwares 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2? for ipod touch?

HoHoHo519 October 29, 2010, 12:30 am

zicmama January 28, 2011, 11:01 pm


In fact RedSnOw wait for an iPod reboot in Upgrade mode (keep on/off + Home, then release on/off).
Then the upgrade is going on after that…

~?~Lalala~?~ October 30, 2010, 8:38 pm

How to know if my iTouch 2G is MC or non-MC? I tried this for 5 times or more. :-/ But redsn0w is just stuck in “Waiting for reboot.” Then, I retried again, and it didn’t work. 😐 Help, please. [-o< I keep trying it all over and over and over again. 8-|

Ned October 22, 2011, 6:55 am

I’m attempting to jailbreak a 1G iPod touch running iOS 3.1.3. I using a custom built computer running Windows 7 Professional and iTunes 10.5.

The second stage of the jailbreak installs and then it gets stuck at “Waiting to reboot”. I must be getting into DFU mode correctly or I wouldn’t reach that stage. Is there something else interfering with the software? Do I need to try this in Windows XP compatibility mode?

Thanks for the help!

omar_t October 15, 2012, 4:21 am

i’m trying to jailbreak my iPod Touch 1G 3.1.3
It doesn’t recognize any of the firmware I provide. I downloaded iPod Touch firmware 3.1.2 (iPod1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore)
What am I doing wrong? I’m using redsn0w 0.9.3 exactly as you said…

Semee December 17, 2012, 6:51 pm

Wow, same thing to me! I have the same gen, same firmware, same PROBLEM ! Please IphoneHeat, help us !

iPhoneHeat December 18, 2012, 1:57 am

Just tried it myself.. IPSW recognized without any problem..

Use RedSn0w 0.9.3
and point it to iPod1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw

Semee December 20, 2012, 4:26 pm

Wont work, tried a billion times… Maybe because i have MA model.. iPhoneHeat? What do you say about it?

iPhoneHeat December 20, 2012, 6:18 pm

If RedSn0w is not recognizing 3.1.2 IPSW then may be it’s your 3.1.2 firmware. Re-download it from some other source and retry.

Luís Sampaio July 10, 2017, 4:02 pm
