  7. I had jail broken my ipod when it was 1.1.3 and it worked perfectly but i messed it up and needed to restore my ipod. and it installed 1.1.4 on it. and now i cant jailbreak. everything works fine until the white writing goes down my ipod and it stops at “spamming waiting for responce” and then i have to start all over again and restore my ipod. Can anyone help me?

  8. This method (with ZiPhone 2.4 or 2.5) does NOT currently work on 16gb or 32gb ipod touches as they will get stuck in a loop while updating.
    I can’t currently find any way of jailbreaking them but hopefully something will be out soon.

    can u help me please = The ziphone is the easiest way to jailbreak and its pretty safe as well. I’ve tried jailbreaking my itouch and ended up buying my 4th touch 🙂 Run the ziphone window and relax. It will do its thing.

  15. Well I had jailbroken my 1.1.4 ipod touch with ziPhone and it was ok. but I turned it off and when it was on again, there was the logo of when you buy it ( connect the ipod to itunes) so I did and it said I had to restore but I didnt have internet on the laptop so i just clicked the button in ziphone to put it back without jailbreak.
    From there it started to show up codes and then it just crashed.
    It won’t go on…
    Just as some people above…


    thanks in advance
    : )

  16. okay so i got installer on my
    8gb itouch but whenever i try to download anything it says
    “error package download failed!”

    anyone help?

  17. Just as Saurab above, I downloaded the installer and when I try to open it I get the message “error package download failed!” Any ideas would be appreciated.

  18. ziphone fucking blows. pretty much all there is to it. they must have only made it so that only iphone can download packages

  19. yeahh the installer wont show on my ipod only the z does HELP!!!

  20. PLEASE HELP ME!!! I have a 8gb Ipod touch, followed ziphone instructions for jailbreak and it is forever stuck on some scrolling white text… nothing else. I can’t put it in recovery mode, when you restart the device it just restarts the scrolling text. It repeats: “BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0” the text repeats itself the entire length of the screen. I have only had this ipod 2 days and am scared it is damaged… please help me!!!!

  21. OK seriosuly i have the same problem it says BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0 PLZ HELP I”M SERIOUSLY FREAKED OUT

  22. okay… it is fixable, granted it took me 6 hours to figure it out. I entered the “BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0” message along with the words “Ipod touch” into the search engine and a site came up that walks you through how to correct this and fix your ipod. Basically what it came down is REPEATEDLY holding down the home and power buttons simultaneously while plugged in to the computer for 8 seconds at a time. Try this repeatedly. If you have no luck, post again and I will try finding the site!

  23. Can you please help me? I have a 32GB itouch, I tried to use the Ziphone to jailbreak, it did not finish the install, it just hung up, white text says sigleuser boot fsck not done, root device is mounted read only

  41. I jail broke my iPod touch yesterday with ziphone my firmware is 1.1.4 with software update for those of you who are having the problems with the white text looping you need to hold the on/off button and the home button until it goes off and on 3 times and you will see the image you got when you first got the iPod and then plug it in and wait till your iPod is found on iTunes and then do a system restore but do NOT put the songs back on!! Then you need to close iTunes and go to ziphone download it and hook your iPod back up then click on jailbrake iPod but don’t stop clicking click it five times quickly or even a little more if you want and white text should start scrolling and when you see the words Mac Address with some numbers then quickly click the off button and then the home button and a big z will come up and rite after that there will be a picture of the flaming z and zorro with text at the bottom that said loading installer

  42. hey when i try to download summerboard on my 8g touch, it says error package download failed. what happened?

  43. how do get my itunes to recognize my ipod touch so i can restore it, i installed ziphone and accidentally skipped over the restore page?

  44. I used the ziphone on my 16G and it got stuck in that loop. I freaked out but then I looked at the comments and saw thatsome helpful people had posted how to fix the problem. Thank you a lot and let me know when ziphone will work for 16G ipod touchs

  45. I used the DO EVERYTHING link the first time and it messed my ipod up. But then I did the UNLOCK botton and it worked great on my 16G ipod! thank you

  46. i jailbroke my ipod touch with the ziphone and downloaded some apps but now it seams that evertime i try to download an app it gives me an error theat says package download failed any answers anyone?

  47. regarding the ‘package download failed’ , to fix this u must turn yor ipod/iphone off fully. Do this by holding the power button until the power slider appears. Slide the bar so tht ure ipod turns off, then turn it back on and try downloading again. This worked for me .

  48. damn this thing worked perfectly and didnt need to do all the hassle u had in ur video it worked even better ur a fricking genius thanks again man 😉

  49. hey my iTouch is something wrong with it. In the middle of Jailbreaking it, it took more than 3 minute and i stop the process, now the itunes won’t detect it and like the only thing on my screen is
    BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0

  50. ok so i downgraded my ipod to 1.1.3 and did the video for ziphone for 1.1.3, so i did the steps but now wen i did the steps for jailbreak it was in that error ummm: i think it was bsd 0 and sumthin sumthin, can u help cuz i did everything the video told me 2 do so ya…… plz give me help

  51. You people are all idiots. No wonder the USA is going into a death spiral of stupidity. Doesn’t anyone proof-read anything they write? Go back and read what you’ve written. You all sound like a bunch of illiterate morons….true products of our public education system. God help us!

  52. Jim, unfortunately a lot of people eith don’t bother or don’t take much care when typing into a computer these days. However, this isn’t a literacy test, it’s a thread where people genuinely need help – not insults. 🙂

  53. hey when I try and download or uninstall any thing from my installer from my 1.1.4 iPod touch it says
    pakage download fail and I’ve tried turning it off and on fully but dosent work should I restore it and download jail break again
    tap bak on or .com thx

  54. Kate…it sounds like there’s a very mixed result base from trying to jailbreak the iTouch. I’ve been thinking about breaking mine…I even downloaded Ziphone. However, after reading the results in this forum, I’m not willing to fix that which is not broken. I’m not really willing to follow the instructions on YouTube from a bunch of 10-year olds. It doesn’t sound like there’s a great deal of confidence from the advice given on this site either. Sorry to insult, but I found it difficult to pour through all the posts above to try extract the information I need from the flurry of grammatical incompetence.

    It sounds like you had success, though. Did you break yours when 1.1.4 was installed? Even if the iTouch is broken, where’s the best place to get all the 3rd party apps?



  55. To all those looking for a clean, clear description of jailbreaking your Touch, go to Download the app for your platform (Windows or Mac). Connect your Ipod. You don’t have to do anything else except just plug your Ipod in. You don’t have to do all that other crap like restore, sync, or whatever else you’ve been told. This whole process has been way over-explained and made to appear very complicated. Software engineers like to do that so the world of computer software becomes very nebulous and ambiguous to the lay-person. They like to make it appear that way so you have to come to them for answers. It’s like built in job security!! 🙂

    If you’ve already been using your Touch (like me), then start Ziphone and simply click, “Jailbreak” on the left side of the GUI (graphical user interface). Everything will happen automatically…you won’t have to do anything except wait. You’ll see some DOS-looking text scroll across your screen, but it’s all automatic. You don’t need to touch the Ipod during this phase.

    Once it’s done…YOU’RE done—your Touch is Jailbroken, and it will restart automatically! Just start your Ipod and click the installer icon. You’ll have tons of apps you can install, or go find other on the web.

    Good luck…from someone who had reservations about jailbreaking mine. Worry not, young squire!

  56. ZiPhone pretty much destroyed my iTouch. I do NOT in anyway, blame ZiPhone. It was my own mistake. Instead of downloading the .NET Framework, I decided to be a smart ass and try to hack it myself. I have officially broke my iTouch.
    But I hope someone out there knows how to fix it.
    It’s current condition is just a bunch of codes. Then at the very bottom of the codes it repeats,

    BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0

    If anyone can help me, it will be very greatly appreciated.

  57. hey

    please someboyd help. ive jailbroken my ipod touch but now my itunes wont connect to my ipod becaue of an ‘error’ and i cant get on my ipod. please, i dont know what to do.


  58. I get the zphone on my computer and it started the thing where on your ipod it shows all the words going across the screen and it took more than 3 minutes so i stooped it..then it said No such file or directory and thats all it says its stuck like that and won’t go back to the normal screen so my ipod touch doesn’t work at all. what do i do???

  59. All this talk what about the Iphone 8g

  60. i guess i can say this. All is good good, y year old narrator.

  61. guys i downloaded like 20 things and then when i tried to update this thing on my installer for the jailbreaking thing it says package download failed is it because there isnt any wi-fi or what cause my connection to wi-fi is really strong idk wats wrong wit it

  62. Watch this video

  63. My Iphone got stuck on the zorro guy with the picture of the iphone and now I cant use it.I need help because apple won’t cover it with its warranty.

  64. well my iphone has stucked with the apple logo and the circle spining and i have searched over internet to fix it.i have pushed the round button and the top one (on/off) together.The phone turned off.Then ive connected iphone to itunes and i have choosed the option to put the iphone to the factory values (or something like that).This will erase everything from iphone.Ive wait few minutes.Everything was fine,the phone turned on and off ok.The problem was that i found that my iphone was locked.It said to introduce an available sim card.I’m from spain so my sim was not available.Ive searched again on internet and i found the Ziphone.Believe me.Ive just install the program on my computer (windows os),connect the iphone,push the unlock option from Ziphone.A lot of numbers and letters starts to running on the iphone screen,Stoped after 1 minute more or less.After another minute start running again.Totaly 4-5 minutes or less.Now my iPhone works like new.I have 1.1.4 firmware.This happening like 3 weeks ago.I hope that my post helped someone to fix his iphone.Sorry for my english.

  65. i have installed the ziphone,but i dont know how to install the apps.when i click at the icon on ziphone opens safari and the link,what do i have to do next

  66. Ledi.zIphone is for installing it on computer,not on iPhone.What do you have on your phone its only an icon which goes to zIphone website,nothing more.

  67. Well, I’ve tried to help as much as I can, but still people keep posting their ignorance on this website. All of this goes back to that story about the computer support technician after getting so frustrated with the moron on the phone. Finally, he gave her precise instructions: “Get your computer, all the manuals and accessories, and put them back in the box and take it back to the store…because you’re too f…ing stupid to own one.”

    Put your iPod back in the box and sell it on eBay…because you’re too f….ing stupid to own one. Go to Wal Mart and buy a portable CD player.

  68. if you have the “BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0” don’t worry because it is fixable. All you have to do is make sure the itouch/phone is connected to the computer then hold down the Home+Sleep button till you see the recovery screen. Then the computer should detect it. if that dont work,

  69. I just downloaded the app. for my iphone and it works great!!
    Does anyone know how to put a picture on the homescreen??

  70. I just downloaded ziphone onto my ipod touch (1.1.4). And it seemed to work fine but on the home page it only has only added the link to Zibri’s Blog, but not the installer. Did I do something wrong?

  71. lol, i dunno how u get the link with the video that shows, how 2 reapair the iPod touch if we have the problem with the white text scrolling down all over the screen, but this really works, its awesome.i had this problem once and i send my ipod touch 2 apple but now im so thankfull 2 u guys that shows us how we can do this alone:)
    thank u very very much!!!

    thankyou in advance for any help/ad vice.

  73. TEKONE
    Try to turn off the wifi,and then turn off the phone.Restart phone and wifi again.For me it’s working like this.

  74. You sir have helped me a bunch….i did what you said and it helped a bunch…..i was able to download the updated community sources…his i am assured is the root of the problem…. so if any of you have trouble the method is: TURN OFF WIFI , TURN OFF IPOD/IPHONE , TURN ON IPOD , THEN WIFI , THEN FIRST THING TO DO IS INSTALL THE UPDATE FOR COMMUNITY SOURCES- MINGHT NEED TO REFRESH SOURCES TO PICK THE UPDATE UP……hey presto , less stress bro…

  93. I have a iPhone 1.1.4v unlocked with zibri’s and i’am asking if anyone knows,if i will update it to the last version,2.0.1v will be ok or apple will gone block my iphone?

  94. I jailbrok my itouch with ziphone. It all worked fine and there was nothing wrong…. But i decided to restore it. Again it restored fine. The only problem is that the ziphone icon is still on my main screen.

    sorry not the most major problem!!!

  95. Sounds like you have ZiPhone on there still, the only way to get rid of it is to remove the folder from your iPhone under Applications

  96. Where is applications??

  97. Hi you crazy people

    I used ziphone and unlocked my ipod, all worked fine great bit of software. then saw the upgrade your ipod to 2.0 splash screen looked good , looked liked like it installed some new apps, and at only £5.99. so I downloaded it (free) and installed the upgrade, and all it done was removed my ziphone installer and replaced it with apples installer that was it no other apps but now I have to buy the apps so I had to downgrade to 1.1.4 re-jailbreak had to do this several times as it didn’t seem to like it, still ironing out problems with it. (So for the love of god don’t bother buying or downloading the upgrade it sucks)

  98. I did the install and it never completed.

    Now, I have to do a restore and I will not have all mu contacts!

    Is there anything I can do to save my contacts?

  99. This is mainly a shout out to vadka… u r the biggest help online right now cuz i had jailbrokin my 32GB iTouch with ZiPhone(which sucks balls) and it crashed. i had the same prob as Nick had on April 14th and u told him how to fix it by holding down the power and home buttins fer a long time and it worked. and i just want to say to everyone else that has a iTouch prob and vadka tells u how to fix it, u can trust him. i mean this because i really love my iTouch and u helped fix it so thanx!!!

  103. For those who had unlock the iPhone with ZiPhone and they still have the icon with the zibri’s website on the screen:just hold your finger over the icon until it will start shakeing and you’ll see a ”X” on the top-right corner of the icon.Touch the ”X” and the icon will be removed.

  104. when i hold my finger over the ziphone icon it doesn’t shake. is it because i have the itouch?

  105. Put your finger over one of the icons on your iPhone or itouch. Tell it starts to shake about 5 to 15 seconds. When they all shake then a (X) will will show up on the icons u can remove. When u press the (x) it will be deleted. And as for the 2.0 iPhone and the 3g iPhone u can not jail break it so far. The did a major update to the operation software and so the older jail break will not work if u find a way post it here so I will know. Ps I love my iPhone 3G. I was number 1 in line

  110. For anyone who has tried jailbreaking their itouch and it is now stuck with white words. Hold down the power button and home button for 8seconds until it turns off. [have your iphone/itouch unplugged] when it is turned off hold the home button down, while holding plug it back into your computer. this should fix it. It fixed mine. if not go to

  111. I’ve read numerous comments before making the final decision to jailbreak my iPod touch (16GB, v. 1.1.5.) with ZiPhone… I finally pressed the button and everything went just fine… In a few seconds it was jailbroken! Thanks

  112. Just for the record, the second button “Jailbreak -works with iPod too” means that you can jailbreak your iPod too. Make sure that your iTunes is also activated. Better luck next time..

    To restore:

    1. Go to the screen where it says BSd major root etc.
    2. Hold the power button and the home button until it turns off.
    3. Next unplug your iPod from the computer.
    4. Hold the home button and then while holding it plug it in.
    5. IF this doesnt work try steps 3 and 4 again.

  113. tonicofwar omg you have seriously saved my life. i thought i was doomed forever with white lol. thank you 🙂

  114. i got a ipod touch (16gb v1.1.4) and i make the jailbreak but i cant add sources or apps or refresh sources or anything! T.T
    if someone know how to fix that or how can i put my own applications in my ipod please tell me

  115. @AMR,

    Are you connected to the internet while trying to refresh sources? What error does it say?

  116. it says ”cannot refresh sources”

  117. Probably you are not connected to the internet. Go Settings –> Wi-Fi –> select a wireless connection

    If you are connected, you probably don’t have a strong signal. Sometimes it happens to me that it can’t download packages, so I solve the problem by restarting my iPod.

  118. which version of itunesd should I restore my Itouch with because I have tried severally to restore it witht hte most recent version but it just wont restore!!!!What do I do..I need some help guys


  119. i have wi-fi signal

[have your iphone/itouch unplugged] when it is turned off hold the home button down, while holding plug it back into your computer. this should fix it. It fixed mine.

  123. Can you jailbreak the new iPod toach

  124. Ive jailbroke my ipod, and now want to get rid of it from my ipod and computer but i have no clue on how to do it ? please help!!!!

  125. you need an intenet connection

  126. yes

  127. Betty,
    Get rid of what, and why?

  128. I just jailbroken my iTouch 16gb, v 1.1.5, But with another step by step video, I was all scared, coz i didnt want to brick my itouch, but all went very good, everything works, and i am very happy, no stopping at white screen etc…

    After installation of ziphone installer was on my touch and i just launched it and it worked…


  129. help i have the same problem

  130. mine duz the same thing but i have internet service and it still wont work wtf??

  131. I prefer Quickpwn… it’s just the best in my opinion. I’ve heard a lot of issues with Ziphone.

  132. I have a 16gb itouch and found this out the hard way. Have you been able to get yours back to normal after getting it stuck? If so, how did you restore it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  133. In that case, what do I do??? Every time I plug mine up, it gives me the screen telling me to connect it to iTunes even though it’s hooked to my computer. I put the iTouch in recovery mode and finally got iTunes to recognize that it was in recovery mode…but it said the iTouch couldn’t be restored. If there is anything I can do, please tell me. I’m desperate!!!!!

  134. download the firmware and press shift + click restore and select the downloaded firmware
    and yes, its better getting a free firmware 2.2 and use quickpwn

  135. Hey! Sorry my bad English. If you have problems with the jailbreaking and the well known white text who continously scrolls down the screen. If your Itouch says “BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0? – Hold down the home and power switch simultaneously till it shuts down and starts again and release when the Logo( connect to Itunes logo the first logo that appears after you start the Itouch for the first time) appears on the screen. then go to Itunes and Restore your Itouch. I also had the same problems as you and i were so afraid that i’d screwed up my Itouch so i gave it a last try and held the two buttons simultaneously down and the screen turned off and restarted after a few seconds and a few seconds after that again the “connect to Itunes logo” appeared.

  136. you seriously just saved my life. not even kidding, i absolutely love you. thanks soooooooooo much.

  137. when i try to jail break my ipod or even get the thing to come up, it says
    the app. failed to initialize properly. why does it say that?

  138. try with other firmware

  139. Hey i did the same..thing..stopped the jail breaking in the middle of the process..and now it is not turning on..what should i do ?

  140. Okay, I want to know if it is possible to install the Ziphone on my ipod. A cpuple days ago I reset it by pressing to earese everything on my ipod. It means that right now I do not have a software on my ipod. Does it exist a way to do it? Please answer me as soon as you can!
    Thank you very much for the attecion!
