Requirements:

- An iPod Touch 2G, MB models need to be jailbroken with redsn0w and MC models need to be put in DFU mode to run it.

sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0 libusb-1.0-0-dev libreadline6-dev readline-common libreadline6 libreadline-dev texinfo git-core build-essential libpng12-dev
Note: On Mac OS X install Xcode 4, homebrew then install wget and scons.

- Get the OpeniBoot Source:
Code: [Select]
git clone git://github.com/iDroid-Project/openiBoot.git --recursive
then:

cd openiBoot/

Code: [Select]
cd openiboot && scons iPodTouch2G && scons ipt_2g_openiboot.bin

Code: [Select]
cd ../utils/syringe && make
- Put your iPod Touch 2G MB in recovery mode to load OpeniBoot
Turn your iPod on and plug it to the computer.
Now turn it off, and after it is off, press and hold the home button.
Now turn your iPod on whilst holding the home button

- Now load the img3 to your iPod Touch 2G:
