How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hello, I am trying to do my girlfriend a favor. Her home button is broke on her ipod. I said i could just jailbreak it(like all my devices) and use activator to set the volume keys as the home. It was all fun and games until i realized your utility only supported ios 6.1.5. Hers is on 6.1.6. I know there is that hole thing where you tether jailbreak it and go into cydia and install the p0 package to make it a tethered--- but i can only get her ipod to boot dfu using redsnow's custom dfu restore thingy... So i was hoping maybe you could help me out. Maybe you can tell me if you are gonna release a utility for ios 6.1.6? Thank you so much!

Well, if I recall correctly iH8sn0w said he lost/misplaced the source for the tool so he doesn't know if/when it will be updated.

If it's the 4th gen touch you could try this and ignore the part about restoring. Just go into DFU if you can and continue. If it's the ribbon cable that's torn/broken those are really, really cheap on ebay and not much harder to install than following the linked guide.
