QuickPwn - Firmware 2.1
You must already be on a clean version of 2.1 before proceeding. If you are on a 2.0 version, you can simply update on iTunes. If you are not, download the Firmware 2.1 (iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw) HERE. Select iPod1,1 (2.1/5F137) from the iPhone / iPod touch dropdown. After downloading, open iTunes and connect your iPod Touch. Make sure your songs/content is backed up.
• Select your device on iTunes.
• Hold Shift + click Restore.
• Select the downloaded 2.1 Firmware, and wait for it to install.
To get the required QuickPwn for the 2.1 JailBreak, download it from HERE or HERE.
When you extract QuickPwn.exe into a folder, it is recommended to place the 2.1 firmware in the same folder. If you do not, the JailBreak may or may not work
Open up QuickPwn.exe. It will then tell you to connect your iPod Touch to your computer. It will then detect it and the arrow will turn blue. Click the arrow (Next) button.
QuickPwn will then search for the 2.1 Firmware (iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw). The default location (if you upgraded from iTunes) will be in
C:\Documents and Settings\100314579\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates\iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw
If QuickPwn cannot locate the 2.1 Firmware, click Browse and locate the downloaded one you placed in the QuickPwn folder.
When it has found the correct file, a green checkmark will appear on the iPod Touch picture, and the arrow will turn blue. Click the arrow.
Here you must select Cydia and Installer. You can also choose to replace the boot logo. (Instead of the apple logo showing up when you turn on your iPod Touch, a pineapple will appear.) Click Next.
Another screen making sure your iPod Touch is connected will appear. After you click next to that, the process will begin. Do no unplug your iPod Touch or exit QuickPwn until the JailBreak is complete.
Congratulations! You’ve just Jailbroken your iPod Touch!
*If this method of Jailbreaking did not work, try the WinPwn method.
