So this will not work on iPod Touch 2G 4.1 MC mode? If not do you know the time frame? It’s only that I live in the Marianas Island so our time are not the same.

it worked for mine

thesaipankid October 13, 2010, 2:50 am

Any news yet on the iPod touch 2G 4.1 MC model jailbreak?

thesaipankid October 13, 2010, 2:53 am

I try this this 10x but it keeps telling me to “Try again”

iPhoneHeat October 13, 2010, 3:11 am

Limera1n is also an option 🙂

thesaipankid October 13, 2010, 3:40 am

Thank you

talroy November 23, 2010, 3:27 am

can u use it for an ipod touch 2nd gen mb model on 4.1 firmware

dave October 13, 2010, 9:50 pm

Happened with me also, I tried may be 10 times, phone does go into dfu mode, howeber greepois0n doesnt detect that its in dfu mode. then i just gave up on it..

twizy86 October 13, 2010, 4:47 am

I thought the 3rd gen was the 8gb mc model but guess not cause this isnt working for me

pissedoff October 13, 2010, 5:42 am

this is fucking gay!!!! i have been waiting to jailbreak my itouch 3g 8gb since the 4.0.2 firmware came out and not ONE walkthrough has worked!!!!!! i have tried several times with limera1n, and several times with greenpoison, and each has FUCKING failed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tdawg October 14, 2010, 5:24 am

same thing with me to i have everything u need and nothing seems to be working at all it is really pissing me off. I feel pretty much how u feel

theblueprint October 20, 2010, 5:05 am

Chill out. For real. First of all, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 3G 8GB IPOD TOUCH. The 8gig is only 2g. Second, make sure youre following the directions to the letter. Now, keep trying and you will get it.

Why you should listen to me: BECAUSE I HAVE A 2G 8 gig IPOD TOUCH!!!!

Larry October 23, 2010, 7:12 pm

Apple marketed the “8gig 2g” as a 3g device. The box says 3g on it. Shame on them for ripping us off…

mattm681 October 13, 2010, 7:39 am

Anyone successfully tried this with iphone 4.1 3gs? please let me know

ipodtouch3g October 14, 2010, 1:07 am

GreenpoisOn wont reconigize my ipod touch 3g mc model in dfu mode and i tried it about 10 times still didnt reconigize it please help

james95121 October 14, 2010, 2:49 am

it happen to me twice. i had a sim card password. Then i turned it off and the it worked. Yeah!!!

omarlopez9 October 15, 2010, 5:30 am

Does This Work For Ipod Touch 3g Mc Model??

Frustrated... October 17, 2010, 11:31 am

Well, i have a 3rd gen 8gig itouch like pissedoff up there. mine wont work either and just like him, or her, i have waited a long time to jailbreak my device. the only difference between he/she and i is that i have a PC model. my question is: will greenpois0n ever be updated to jailbreak 3g 8gig ipod touches and if so, when, but if not, can anyone give me another website, link, download or something that can? thanks

LiveOrDie October 17, 2010, 2:42 pm

This fails to pick up my 3g in DFU mode?

Fuzzypiggy October 17, 2010, 8:24 pm

Worked fine for me and my iPod Touch 3G 32GB using Mac GreenPoison.

1. I couldn’t get it at first but I installed offical 4.1 (8B117) from Apple, turned it off and followed the GreenPoison instructions to the letter.

2. After it had finished it’s business and the Touch rebooted I had to manually execute the Loader icon it had put on my iPod touch “desktop” to get Cydia installed.

3. Working perfect on open 4.1 firmware.

Very pleased!

abhinav October 17, 2010, 8:55 pm

i also having ipod touch 3g 32 gb and not mac ….
i also want to ask that the application that i have installe in 3.1.2 version will be deleted if i install new version…and can u tell where r the copy of games in ipod

alygeorgie November 17, 2010, 9:16 pm

Same thing here! After so many times of trying to jailbreak my iPod touch 3G 8GB, this one finally worked for me. What I did wrong was that after the 15-second countdown for the holding of the home button, I released it right away. But I tried holding the home button even after the 15-second countdown then it FINALLY successfully jailbroke my iPod Touch 3G 8gb! Thanks!

terry October 18, 2010, 9:34 pm

it worked perfectly just remember after jail breaking it….u need to find the Loader App to install Cydia again …!!!

ernestoespa February 10, 2011, 5:06 am

Help…i have the white loader icon…i tap it and nothing happens…what i did wrong??? thanxs

jameshatcherhh March 27, 2011, 2:11 pm

Very nice.. it worked in my new ipod touch 4th Gen. >__<

john January 9, 2011, 1:54 pm

how? I have a 32 gig 4th gen ipod touch and i’ve tried it 4 times. all i got was the “quit” button on green poison. I quit, then pressed the x button on the pop up in itunes (itunes has detected an ipod in recovery mode…). it disappeaared, reapeared, i pressed x again, Reapeated proccess, then stopped showing. Then i closed itunes, and now my ipod is just showing the usb port connect to itunes picture, even after i disconnect it from computer.. WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!? PLZ ANSWER!!!

mike13m October 23, 2010, 10:45 am

OMG!!! It doesn’t work for me!!! 🙁 I have iPod Touch 2g Mc model iOS 4.1 but the jailbreak keeps failing! I followed the instructions and put my iPod into DFU mode while greenpois0n was running, and it recognized my iPod in DFU mode, and the jailbreak button screen came up. However, immediately after i clicked the Jailbreak! button, it says Jailbreak failed 🙁 and this has happened like 5 times 🙁 i’m running on Windows XP with latest version of itunes. Help plz?

renaud4 October 24, 2010, 9:11 pm

i got the same problem dude

jake October 24, 2010, 2:00 pm

i have a 2g mc model and it worked perfectly for me

crpmaciel October 25, 2010, 11:33 pm

In my Ipod Toch 3G 8GB works!!!!! Thanks!!!!!

Funfou legal no meu ipod Touch 3G de 8GB!!!

dboyz October 28, 2010, 4:14 pm

yeah its working fine..ipod touch 4g US ver.
i did it several times (4-5 times) & my ipod was in recovery mode… don’t restore & update it.. just ignore it and keep following instructions from greenpois0n…thats all

hmm i just wanna know…do we have to delete loader after installing cydia? (i’m a noob) :p

Deodato October 30, 2010, 2:15 am

Nope, it doesn’t work on my 3G iPhone. They need to add a manual button to force the installation. The dimmed “Waiting for DFU” button is BS.

the asian October 30, 2010, 11:12 am

well how do i know if my ipod 4g is jailbroken or not?

ferebol November 6, 2010, 9:14 am

the asian October 30, 2010, 12:07 pm

karma November 6, 2010, 6:54 am
