How to Unlock an iPod Touch

How to unlock an iPod touch is also called ‘jailbreaking’. One of the reasons an individual wants to unlock the iPod is to access more of its potential. When the firmware is locked the potential is restricted and you will not be able to install custom applications (apps), including specific ringtones and other such items. Prior to the development of recent software, one would have to open the case to the iPod and the warranty would then be voided. This procedure is totally safe and will not cause your warranty to become void.
If you already are using the firmware for jailbreaking, you must restore the iPod by connecting to iTunes for the restoration program. You will need to use IPSAW file format to download the firmware for your iPod. For an iPod Touch 3rd generation you can go to the site,1_4.3.2_8H_Restore.ipsw. The site for the 4th generation is,1_4.3.2_8H7_Restore.ipsw. You will also need to download redsnow by going to the site Save both of these to a file folder on your desktop.
