when i use blackra1n itunes says that my ipod needs to recover and it deletes all of my songs and apps and acts as it just got plugged in for the first time. how do i fix this?

December 25, 2009 at 3:34 AM

I've "made it ra1n" several times, and I NEVER got the Blackra1n icon on my iPod Touch screen any of the times it rebooted. What's going on?

December 25, 2009 at 3:54 AM


I have tried this method and several others involving blackra1n. Every time, it repeats the behavior 'corey jones' has reported above. I am on 3.1.2 and the iPod Touch has never been jailbroken or modified.

Please help.

after i jailbreak ipod touch 3g 32gb with blackra1n, it works great, at least the jailbreak part. but after i install rock/cydia and go to reboot, it starts backup on recovery mode asking to be hooked up to itunes...not sure what the problem is. i have a 32gb iphone 3gs and it worked flawlessly on the first attempt. does anyone have any suggestions?

December 25, 2009 at 5:54 AM

This happened to me as well. 32GB ipod touch. Jailbreak went great and then after installing cydia and rebooting it won't do anything until it is hooked to itunes. Itunes wants to recover it.

December 25, 2009 at 6:51 AM

apparently there is a tethering issue. when it boots back up, you have to have blackra1n running on your pc for it to boot back up. make sure its plugged in and close itunes when it tells you it found an ipod in recovery. hopefully there will be a fix soon.

ya will have to restore you i pod touch to do the jailbreak so sync what ya got then after restoring like new then do the blackrain the only difference with the new i pod are that they are tethered jailbreaks so that means if ya turn it off completely or let the battery run dead ya wil have to rerun blackrain so my advice is not to follow the step of powering off your i pod or you will have to run black rain again

December 25, 2009 at 7:35 AM

Fantastic, worked first time without fault.


December 25, 2009 at 8:32 AM


I was wondering if you can jailbreak your ipod with just your ipod. Is there any way to do that. I searched an app called cydia and that is supposed to be in the appstore but its not. If you know anyway to do this please contact me at jemmag9@gmail.com


December 25, 2009 at 12:03 PM

Everything went ok...until...after I installed Cydia and turned off and turned on my iPod touch (as instructed), iTunes cannot detect my ipod...and i cant even use it anymore. Any advise on this?

December 25, 2009 at 12:21 PM

everything went well until after i installed cydia and turned off my ipod touch. when i turned it on, iTunes can't detect my ipod and i can't use it anymore!...Any advise on this?

December 25, 2009 at 1:49 PM

how did you fix it? i have the same problem

December 25, 2009 at 1:51 PM

There is alternate for iTunes

December 25, 2009 at 2:16 PM

I got the same problem as SilentNaga I got the picture of Geohot but not the blackra1n icon. could you be more specific with the details?

December 25, 2009 at 2:41 PM

hey! after i downloaded the toolbar, there isnt a "download" button. HELP!

December 25, 2009 at 3:31 PM

If you don't see one then just go to http://www.blackra1n.com, scroll down to the bottom and click either Windows or Mac logo depending on your system to download it.

December 25, 2009 at 3:50 PM

hey M, are having an issue at all with having to run blackra1n every time you reboot your ipod?

December 25, 2009 at 3:56 PM

The Blackra1n jailbreak for 3rd Generation iPod Touch is not a permanent solution. It is a tethered solution. What this means is if you power down your iPod (or drain the battery) it will restart in recovery mode. You WILL need to be connected to a PC with Blackra1n installed on it and run the program again. I have this on my iPod touch 3rd Gen and accidentally powered off, needless to say I couldn't do anything until I had the USB cable connected and ran Blackra1n again. I have decided to wait until there is a permanent jailbreak for the iPod touch 3G. Lots of people got iPods for Christmas so there will be a lot of people getting frustrated because they didn't read the release notes and blogs.

"If your ipt2/3GS/ipt3 is rebooting into recovery after running blackra1n, this isn't a bug. It's a feature. You need to run blackra1n every time to boot it. This 'feature', called tethered jailbreak, is enabled by upgrades Apple made to the bootrom and the fact ipt3 uses nand flash."

December 25, 2009 at 4:32 PM

wow bruh i did that shit i turned it off nd it fuckin showed the itunes sign nd the usb sign i was like wtf this is retarded hahah but thanks for telling me now :)

December 25, 2009 at 6:46 PM

The problem that most people have depends on what version or generation iPod you have. For example. My iPod is 3.1.2. And this has not been ending half good for over five tries. My friend has a secnd gen iPod and he had no
problem with his. I think the best thing
to do is wait till they let out an official version of the jailbreak before you try it.

December 25, 2009 at 9:36 PM

anyone how to UN-jb the itouch 3rd gen? this "fature" is so annoying

December 25, 2009 at 9:43 PM

I thought the same thing. Slide your springboard to the left, it was sitting there on the next screen all by itself.

December 26, 2009 at 12:36 AM

so my ipod wont download the iphone thing at the beginning and i need some help im on a 3g 32gb ipod touch and its running on 3.1.2 and im thinking about jailbreaking it but i dont know will i lose my music or anything like that and its going to be a tethered jailbreak or whatever so please help

December 26, 2009 at 1:50 AM

someone help me please

December 26, 2009 at 2:57 AM

You should mention in this article how you need to carry around a fucking life support system for your iPod anytime you wanna turn it on and have it function lol :D Soo.... is there any way we can un-jailbreak our iPod touches?

December 26, 2009 at 5:43 AM

I ran the program listed above, the screen showed a strange mutilcolored checkerboard for a very long period of time, how long will it remaian like this and is this normal?

December 26, 2009 at 7:05 AM

Just ran this on my ipod touch 1G and the first attempt it went into recovery mode however I did not get the blackra1n logo at all.

I rebooted the ipod and it went back to normal to my home screen.
So attempt #2 I tried it again and this time it successfully went into recovery mode and then the blackra1n logo appeared. Within seconds it popped up saying the jailbreak was complete.

Installed Cydia and rebooted the device again and it's working perfectly. I believe since I have a 1G touch I don't have to worry about the tethering problem, which is great!

December 26, 2009 at 9:57 AM

um im scared to jailbreak it. is this the right thing to do. what if io get caught by someone is it against the law. i mean i want to but idk how. will it mess it up comepletly et me know :)

December 26, 2009 at 10:18 AM

no it is not illegal. Some of the stuff you can download are illegal but the majority of the stuff you get from jailbreaking are not copyrighted or anything so just watch what you download if you want to stay legal.

December 26, 2009 at 12:43 PM

how long does it take to reboot.....I have the picture on my screen with the kid and the 3 ipod touches?

December 26, 2009 at 1:16 PM

when i download. i run, install cydia, when i reboot it wants me to connect to itunes and restore again. what should i do. it will only let me restore

December 26, 2009 at 1:30 PM

dude, my internet and apps stopped working! what do i do?

December 26, 2009 at 1:35 PM

GOD DAMN i dont want to mess it up... i just got it, but I want dTunes (1\/3 833|\| 1|\| +0 +3|-| 1|_|_394|_ |\/||_|$1( |_3\|/+ |>|-|0.-3\/3.-, 1 4|_$0 |\|0 \|/|-|3.-3 +0 93+ 4|_|_ ||-|4|\/|0|_|$|-| |-|4><0.-1|\|9 $0|=+\|/4.-3 0|\| +3|-| |\|3+!)

December 26, 2009 at 1:35 PM

December 26, 2009 at 2:28 PM

Does it work for all 3g Ipod's because i rememeber reading it didnt work for some model 3g?

December 26, 2009 at 2:32 PM

soon as i click make it rain, it says entering recovery and itunes comes up and wants me to restore and update. blackrain doesnt do anything but stay in entering recovery and i sit there for bout 10 min and still nothing.. once i click restore on itunes and the process begins, then blackrain says done... whats that about

December 26, 2009 at 2:34 PM

It's a "minor" setback with the newer iPod touches and iPhones and is dubbed the "tethered jailbreak". Basically when u reboot and it shows to connect to itunes, you need to connect to your pc/mac and run blackra1n again (not restore) and it will boot right up.

December 26, 2009 at 4:19 PM

I am an iPod noob does anyone know if I jailbreak my iPod v3.1.2. Can I still reset it back to factory defalt later on

December 26, 2009 at 5:39 PM

Hey when I run blackra1n it goes to geoholyz face then when it supposed to reboot it just turns off and I can't get it 2 turn back on and the only way I can turn it on is on iTunes. Pls help

December 26, 2009 at 9:18 PM

Yea, I wasn't told about that "tethered jailbreak" thing either. I'm trying to restore it now, but iTunes isn't connecting to their servers. This is really bumming me out...

December 26, 2009 at 11:26 PM

man i managed to get blackra1n on my ipod touch, but it said check your internet connection instead of rock, cydia and ice, so i removed it, and everytime i jailbreak it again the icon 'blackra1n' wont appear anymore.
now, im faced with two problems:
1) im not even sure if my touch is jailbroken because i did not install rock/cydia
2) my ipod touch became tethered to the jailbreak...fml

so will there be any official jailbreaks coming out soon? or are there any un-jailbreakers? heeeeeelp

December 27, 2009 at 1:14 AM

Does jailbreaking make ur I pod slower?

December 27, 2009 at 1:44 AM

Is there any way to correct this problem?

December 27, 2009 at 2:44 AM

yup i just did

December 27, 2009 at 3:20 AM

jailbroke it. but after I restarted it, i lost everything. Now itunes won't let me sync it (calls it an iphone, its an itouch) and my ipod says that it needs to plugged in to itunes. I now have an ipod that doesn't work and won't work. What do I do?

December 27, 2009 at 3:22 AM

Having same problem

December 27, 2009 at 3:31 AM

same, i had to use another laptop to restore

December 27, 2009 at 3:31 AM

tethered jailbreak, you have to click on the 'make it ra1n' button to turn on properly, when it turns off again, u gotta keep repeating it

December 27, 2009 at 4:05 AM

Yah that is the same with me!!!

December 27, 2009 at 5:23 AM

it fried my ipod touch, litterally there was smoke coming out from it!!!it set my homework on fire and my teacher gave me detention for the rest of the term!!!! thxz alot u jailbreaking fraud!!!!:D

December 27, 2009 at 5:42 AM

how will u kno when its jailbroken

December 27, 2009 at 5:50 AM

Yer plug in to itunes and click on your ipod then find the tab with the restor ipoddd in it. easyyy XD

December 27, 2009 at 8:33 AM

sound to me with all these problems that it isnt worth my time or worth recking my touch

December 27, 2009 at 8:35 AM

i tried this and the picture with the guy and ipod touches came up but the blackrain icon never showed up. i ran it again and my ipod just froze with the usb and itunes pic.
wat did i do wrong? and how do i fix it?

December 27, 2009 at 9:04 AM

This worked great! YAY!!

December 27, 2009 at 12:05 PM

It worked just fine for me. I just hate the fact tht if I either reboot, restart, or turn off my itouch, it shows the 'connect to iTunes' pic. I guess that's the tethering setback, but it's not good when ya not near a pc, you know? Hope that gets fixed soon.

December 27, 2009 at 1:01 PM

Can i jailbreak an ipod touch 3rd generation? cause i know you can jailbreak 3.1.2 but how about third generation ?
or Ipod Touch (late 2009)? Thanks

December 27, 2009 at 3:27 PM

Jailbroken!!! It's turning into a bomb. Explode at any second!!!

December 27, 2009 at 3:55 PM

Apparently the blackra1n jailbreak doesn't work for the iPod Touch 3.1.2 (8GB) that have a model number starting in MC ...is there a fix for this, and if not, is there an alternative way to jailbreak the Touch?

December 27, 2009 at 3:57 PM

works great got my ipod big w adelaide late dec 09
ran black rain worked fine loaded appsyc all signed apps work etc
pity when you power down ipod reset as new you have to run blackrain again on your pc to restore everthing comes back with no problems . who turns off the mobile phones these days so just leave your ipod and keep it charge thanks blackrain makers and seasons greeting.

December 27, 2009 at 7:40 PM

December 27, 2009 at 9:56 PM

December 27, 2009 at 11:27 PM

Can anyone help me please? ive been trying to do this for a while but getting the same problem.

December 28, 2009 at 1:01 AM

I am happy that iPod Touch 3G can be jailbreake, but the problem is after jailbreaking the iPod will be stuck at recovery mode, and I have to use blaickra1n to got the ipod to normal mode again, and also if I turn off or reboot the iPod, ipod will stuck again to recovery mode.
There is any solution to fix this problem?
Thank you guys! Hapoy new year!!

December 28, 2009 at 1:04 AM

After your press makit ra1n your ipod will be turn off you must quickly press home and power button untill the geohotz picture comming out, then your ipod will jailbreaked.

December 28, 2009 at 2:07 AM

December 28, 2009 at 5:53 AM

December 28, 2009 at 5:56 AM

December 28, 2009 at 2:33 PM

all sites say that blackra1n DOES NOT work on 3rd gen MC models iPods...yet everyone still tries it then act as it's a shock. Wait until the crack for it will come out...it's just a matter of time.

December 28, 2009 at 2:58 PM

you need to learn how to do it! Jailbreak mean you have your own risk if something happen if you do it your by your foul!
Restore it again and try again! I need to learn for 3 years to be professional not in one day dud!

December 28, 2009 at 4:31 PM

cool! i using OS 3.0 before, and this is the simplest jailbreaking i ever done

December 28, 2009 at 4:58 PM

HEY WHICH FIRMWARE U USING ? can i upgrade to firmware 3.1.2 on my itouch 2g from 2.2.1 which i jailbreaked using quickpwn but all latest games like nfsu,nova,hawx etc wont workn on it ..and then jailbreak via blackrain..will it run smooth ?

December 28, 2009 at 5:00 PM

December 28, 2009 at 8:37 PM

Woo got the iPod touch 3G version 3.1.2 and this works great :O!!!
Spent so much time looking for something like this. Thnx for the tutorial! :D!

December 29, 2009 at 2:42 AM

With the help of a friend, found a way to JB 3.1.2 (7D11) on my Touch 2G using redsn0w. Since I'm sure mods will kill any links to my site, I'll post it here-

Get Redsn0w 0.8, firmware 3.0 (7A341), and custom 3.1.2 (7D11). If you can't make your own custom firmwares, it's out there, you'll find it.

Do a legit iTunes 3.0 restore. Using Redsn0w and the 3.0 firmware, start the jailbreak process. Here's the important part: After you're in DFU mode, when Redsn0w starts working, keep your mouse on the cancel button(but don't click it yet). After the first stage is uploaded, the iPod will restart and go from white screen to black.


Go back to iTunes, shift + restore your custom 3.1.2. Bada boom. Done deal.

Apparently there's a hole in iTunes that allows you to restore to this custom firmware after the initial exploit takes place. I used this method after Blackra1n wouldn't work for me. Enjoy.

December 29, 2009 at 4:28 AM

Hi all,

I have installed blackra1n and followed the instructions. all went great until I open the blackra1n icon and get “loading available installers” All I then get is “please check your internet connection. (err…

I have reset my network settings, reset all settings and reinstalled blackra1n TWICE and restored twice in itunes. I CAN’T INSTALL CYDIA!

I have read all the posts above put can’t get past this problem. I am jailbreaking an ipod touch not an Iphone. All my Wifi settings are working fine. I can access utube etc. it just seems to be blackra1n that has the problem connecting.

Please help.

December 29, 2009 at 5:28 AM

I had the same issue, but could not restore on the version of itunes i had. I just got the itunes update and then i was able to restore my ipod touch. I tried holding the power/home button for 10 secs but that did not work. make sure you have the latest version of itunes to do a restore

joe b
December 29, 2009 at 6:37 AM

This one doesn't. All this article talks about is how great jailbreaking is and how everyone should do it. It doesn't mention tethered and untethered and all that crap.

December 29, 2009 at 11:05 AM

i am seriously the biggest ipod newb ever and this jailbreak took me literally 30 seconds. you sir are a genious i donated. fo reals if u cant do it your a bigger newb than me:P

chris j
December 30, 2009 at 2:59 PM

doesn't even work. WHen i goto restart it makes me reboot to factory settings. Oh well thanks for wasting my time.

December 30, 2009 at 3:15 PM

If your iPod does not reboot plug it back into the computer and run blackrain it will then allow it to reboot. Your apps will still be there, it does not re jailbreak or uninstall any 3rd party apps. I find it extremely impractical to have to have a computer whenever you need to turn on your iPod. Oh well maybe future versions will be more user friendly.

December 30, 2009 at 3:35 PM

Anyone know when 2/3g 8GB blackrain or redsnow version will come out? Neither can jailbreak 2/3g 8GB MC model.

December 30, 2009 at 3:57 PM

I did it, but wen i put in into my comp it says i have to restore how do i fix that?

January 1, 2010 at 1:54 AM

Just lock your ipod, dont turn it off. it has like 300hours battery when its just locked, so if you recharge it after every use, it will be fine.

January 1, 2010 at 2:57 AM

Just run blackra1n on my son's new ipod touch 8GB, worked fine, installed a few games copied from my iphone and they work like on the phone. You'll have to re-blackra1n if you reboot the device. That's quit annoying, since it requires a computer.

January 1, 2010 at 3:20 AM

what is recovery mode?

January 1, 2010 at 3:58 AM

I already install it. I dont see any diference. Now I have blackra1n and cydia icons but I cant install downloaded games or else. It still blocked.

January 1, 2010 at 5:32 AM

once jailbroken and u wish to restart turn off ipod then it will have the connect to itunes logo then just rune blackra1n again

January 1, 2010 at 5:37 AM

what is reboot?

January 1, 2010 at 5:47 AM

this is sooooooooo good :):):):):):):);)

January 1, 2010 at 5:52 AM

when it powers off, connect by usb to computer and run blackra1n again. you don't have to restore it.

January 1, 2010 at 7:33 AM

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA..DID the jailbreaking..turned the ipod off..and now it doesnt turn on..it says that should be restored by itunes..and bla bla..so now? :S

January 1, 2010 at 10:06 AM

January 1, 2010 at 1:31 PM

I just dont get why people do this. u just screw it up and get pissed every time.

January 1, 2010 at 4:16 PM

wow this was soo fast and super easy! thanks!

January 1, 2010 at 7:16 PM

it works

January 2, 2010 at 12:04 AM

I tried this on my first gen iTouch (with 3.1.2) and got as far as the "done, wait for reboot" screen. Nothing happened. My iTouch didn't reboot. Nothing appeared on the screen and I had to restart my iTouch manually. After rest arting, there was no BlackRa1n icon on my iTouch. So, I'm assuming it was a waste of time.

January 2, 2010 at 4:12 AM

I restored my 3rd generation 8GB Ipod Touch and I've tried using Blackra1n many times, and it reboots to the normal Ipod touch, no jailbreak...what do I do?

January 2, 2010 at 4:14 AM

Will this work on a brand new ipod touch (8GB)

January 2, 2010 at 4:24 AM

January 2, 2010 at 9:21 AM

January 2, 2010 at 12:16 PM

It works great. If it freezes after loading in app you can just reboot with itunes. My problem is after 1 day my ipod froze. I i used blackra1n and then you need to load a seperate app that allows you to load games into itunes. When blackra1n crashes I have been told to plu your ipod in and re-launch blackra1n. The next time mine freezes I will try this.

January 2, 2010 at 1:21 PM

Dude, you are my hero

January 2, 2010 at 8:50 PM

what does the jail brek allow you to do does it give you free music and apps on the itunes store ???

January 3, 2010 at 12:24 AM

January 3, 2010 at 1:26 AM

eske cela endomage l'ipod touch ?
et eske il est toujours sous garantis par la suite ?

January 3, 2010 at 3:15 AM

i followed the steps and when i powered off, it would not turn on. it 's still in recovery mode and itunes prompts me to restore. if i restore, will i lose jailbreak"?

January 3, 2010 at 3:17 AM

when i turned off and on again, ipod is in recovery mode and itune prompts to restore. will i lose jailbreak if i restore?

January 3, 2010 at 3:35 AM

same thing happened to me, im not sure what to do either.

January 3, 2010 at 5:12 AM

Well, for 3.1.2, the jailbreak is tethered, so you're not supposed to turn off the iPod. If you do turn it off, you will need to run blackra1n again. In the beginning when you are prompted to reboot, just run blackra1n again.

January 3, 2010 at 8:31 AM

WHen my ipod goes to reboot it doesnt and takes foreva i tried using black ra1n at least 10 times. what is wrong? i have a itouch 3.1.2 2g

January 3, 2010 at 10:50 AM

Holy easiest jailbreak of my life! That's crazy. Well done to whoever created this...that's incredible.

January 3, 2010 at 10:59 AM

Ipod touch just shows image of usb plug and arrow pointing to Itunes icom. Never goes beyond this. If I manually reboot Ipod I see no evidence of blackrain. Geohot image never appears on Ipod either. Itunes automatically starts when device is connected and says it detects jailbroken device which cannot be used with Itunes unless it's restored first. WTF????

January 3, 2010 at 11:27 AM

YES You will lose jailbreak if you restore!!! DO NOT RESTORE.

This is normal with newer iTouches and iPods. DO NOT RESTORE.
Hook up your iTouch or iPhone to the PC and re-run blackra1n. It will then reboot. Same thing happen to mine.

Unfortunately the ones with newer patch of the firmware this happens. If you turn it off or allow the battery to die, you will need to hook it up and re-run blackra1n. But do not restore. This is kinda of a pain, but its best to not turn off or allow the battery to die. If it does you will need a PC and blackra1n to re-boot.

January 3, 2010 at 11:30 AM

Forgot to mention above....all your apps and songs will still be there. This is just needed to get the device to re-boot. Just re-run blackra1n. But DO NOT RESTORE, or you will have to go through the hole process of re-loading all the apps and software.

January 3, 2010 at 12:43 PM

Same here just restore and you will still have jailbreak features

January 3, 2010 at 3:31 PM

wow that was the easiest jail brake EVER!! i just went to the safari and the turned my ipid on when it came back on it was don and i have software 3.2.0OS DGK77

January 3, 2010 at 3:40 PM


January 3, 2010 at 4:57 PM

what can you download?

January 3, 2010 at 9:15 PM

does it also work on the 3th generation ipod touches?
because i just bought mine and its 3th gen. and i heard a lot of rumors about jailbreaking a third generation ipod.
Are those rumors true or can i just jailbreak the thing and unjailbreak it if i dont need it anymore?

January 4, 2010 at 12:26 AM

Problem with BlackRa1n jailbreak if you lose power or reboot for any reason you have to re-jailbreak it everysingle time. It is a real big inconvenience anyone know a way around this?

January 4, 2010 at 7:23 AM

mmm my ipod touch 3rd generation version 3.1.2 gets stuck on the "running" screen in blackra1n. can anybody tell me how much time will it take to finish?

January 4, 2010 at 7:54 AM

holy hell it's been stuck on "running" for more than an hour nd a half now


January 4, 2010 at 11:42 AM

haha. oh i had been trying for ages but i forgot to go look for the application at the last slide to the right. hahaha.
for people who think blackra1n doesnt work after its done it will go back to your original screen. there check unlock your ipod and go to the last application slide. the blackra1n program will be there. u need internet to access it though.

January 4, 2010 at 2:28 PM

one of my friends jailbroke his ipod and he gets all the apps on itunes for free will that work for this?

January 4, 2010 at 2:48 PM

Downloading paid apps for free is illegal and highly discouraged here.

January 4, 2010 at 4:26 PM

Don't restore it just hit cancel or somthing then it should work. or try pluging it in again

January 4, 2010 at 11:41 PM

i am also having problem of getting stuck on the screen which shows itunes logo and usb. please do something about it. it has made my ipod useless. it is also not detected on the itunes.....

Will this be made for MAC?

January 5, 2010 at 9:44 AM

Hi, my brother has the same proble, all that we did was ran again the blackrain as the firts time and now works fine

January 5, 2010 at 10:35 AM

what is jailbreaking? and what does it do to ur ipod

January 5, 2010 at 3:09 PM

I did that too, but it goes into recovery mode after every reboot. So I have to run Blackra1n every time I reboot the iPhone. Is this happening to everyone with 3.1.2 firmware?

January 5, 2010 at 5:30 PM

@??? Yes it was made for MAC. Go to blackra1n.com and click the Apple logo instead of the Windows logo.

@Melissa Jailbreaking is a process of modifying your iPod Touch/iPhone so that you can customize it with 3rd party software/modifications not normally approved by Apple.

@other guys You most likely have the newer version and therefore are on a Tethered Jailbreak. Meaning, EVERY TIME you reboot your device, you MUST run blackra1n again to maintain the jailbreak.

January 5, 2010 at 9:58 PM

When will blackra1n for the iPod touch 3.1.2 be un tethered???
I want to jailbreak my iPod but I don't wish to downgrade my
firmware and obviously no-one wants to re-jailbreak every
time the iPod is restarted. Thanks.

January 6, 2010 at 7:41 AM

I want to jailbreak my iPod touch 8g 3.1.2

I got into big problem.
