    Default iTouch / iPhone questions 4.3.1

    Just been given a 6 month old iTouch 4.3.1

    Someone found it ..handed it to police...not claimed so it came back to them. Local Apple store not interested in helping find the owner/

    So never had one before and have done about 1 hour research this morning on jailbrealking. can't seem to find anything to answer these questions:

    Can I use the same hacks/jailbreaks for a iPhone as for the iTouch?

    Have seen tethered and u tethered jailbreaks...OK so tethered means needing the device connected to the Mac when re booting...but what constitutes a re boot? Does holding the power and home buttons and sliding the slide to power off, and then pressing the power on button again require it to be tethered? Or is it only if a full reset is done do I need a full tethered re start


    What will happen to a jailbroken iTouch if re booted and not tethered ? does it just revert to standard software..and losing all mail accounts/ contacts apps etc etc?.

    Have seen various tools for the Redsnow, PWnage and at least one other...Which one to use and are there more i should consider

    Thanks

    Neil

    Yes the same jailbreak tools work on the iPod touch (but it is simpler as you don't need to unlock or hacktivate)

    Currently, any iPod touch running any publicly released iOS version can be jailbroken untethered (however 3rd and 4th generations may be tethered unlock with future iOS releases so use caution when updating in the future)

    TinyUmbrella - will allow you to find out what OS the iPod touch currently has (and also identify the model number)

    If it is a 3rd or 4th generation iPod Touch then you will need a saved SHSH if you want to downgrade to any iOS version lower than 4.3.1

    The best tool for 4.3.1 is redsn0w 0.9.6rc12 (and correct 4.3.1 IPSW download links http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm here), for 4.2.1 - you should use greenpois0n RC6.1

    Older iOS versions can be usually jailbroken by redsn0w (need to get the correct redsn0w version and IPSW).
