    Question Question with RedSn0w!

    Hello,

    I have a IPod Touch 2nd Gen running on IOS 4.0 (Jailbroken). I would like to upgrade my IPod to IOS 4.2.1, but I am not sure what to use. I see that redsn0w is the mosted used program; I just have a few questions first.

    Questions about RedSn0w:

    • Do I have to remove my apps before installing RedSn0w?
    • Will redsn0w remove my apps when installing? If so does that mean I need to re-add them?
    • Can you guys please give a step-by-step for redsn0w?
    • Do I need to do anything with my IPod other then install RedSn0w?


    If you guys could help me out that would be great!

    Thanks,

    Masterchief

    Redsn0w jailbreaks the iOS version currently installed on your iPod touch. You don't install redsn0w.

    You have two options:

    Upgrade from 4.0 to 4.0.2 via iTunes (simply click the "check for updates" option and follow the prompts). Then download and run redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 from this post Dev-Team Blog - Thanksgiving with Apple and use one of the following guides (skipping the restore step)
    iClarified - iPod touch - How to Jailbreak Your iPod Touch 2G Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]
    iClarified - iPod touch - How to Jailbreak Your iPod Touch 2G Using RedSn0w (Mac) [4.2.1]

    This might give you poor battery life or instability

    Or.. Sync/backup your iPod touch with iTunes.


    Then download and run redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 from this post Dev-Team Blog - Thanksgiving with Apple and use one of the following guides (this time do the restore step)
    iClarified - iPod touch - How to Jailbreak Your iPod Touch 2G Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]
    iClarified - iPod touch - How to Jailbreak Your iPod Touch 2G Using RedSn0w (Mac) [4.2.1]

    Be sure to let your iPod touch activate with iTunes before you run redsn0w to jailbreak.

    It's okay to "restore from iTunes backup", very unlikely you will experience any stability problems.

    Both options will keep your legitimately purchased appstore apps (and their saved data), but you will need to reinstall your cydia apps.
