With the release of the version 2 software for the i Pod Touch it's no longer necessary to break into it to add your own software.But if you want the freedom to add whatever software you want instead of just the titles Apple approves you still need to jailbreak it, which is where Win Pwn comes in.If you’re reading this, chances are you know exactly what Prometheus (AKA futurerestore) is and what it does.It allows you to downgrade to i OS versions that are no longer being signed by Apple, as long as you have valid SHSH2 blobs for that version.Win Pwn is a Windows implementation of Pwnage Tool, which was developed by a group called the i Phone Dev Team.Using Win Pwn and Apple's own software update you can create your own custom firmware, including not just the ability to add more software, but also a custom boot screen.Trust me, you’ll have to redo everything you just did, because you will wind up with the same error message. I can’t honestly tell you that I have any idea what that stands for.So, you’ll need a stopwatch, unless you have a fairly good sense of time.
Heck, you could probably install 1.1.1 if you really wanted to, although that would be stupid.You may have a lot of customizations, icons hidden, and other things.If you upgrade, you will find your hidden icons are still hidden but the apps required to unhide them are not yet installed.From this point on, I’ll assume your i Pod can be connected to i Tunes.Do not, for whatever reason, just click the restore button.
Using futurerestore to achieve an unsigned restore, in most cases, requires you to be jailbroken already so that you can force your device to generate the same nonce value as your SHSH2 blob. Every time your device boots in recovery mode it generates a nonce (number used once) value.
