Yes, I know its very old. Im trying to jailbreak an old iPod 4th Gen. I have used the iOS 6 build on redsnow and as soon as i get through DFU mode (achieved correctly) it begins but "exploit failed." Ive tried 2 factory resets but still having this issue. Any ideas?

It looks like p0sixpwn is down, however i was able to download one 2 days ago, never got a chance to try. I am sure there are more then few mirrors you can find.

The windows version exists but a Mac version for 6.1.6 doesnt? and when I run the windows version it says i dont have itunes even though i do. I'll try to uninstall and install iTunes 10?

Update: iTunes 10 wont run.

Both versions are available for download. Use Google Chrome on Mac to download p0sixpwn.

Try selecting the 6.0 firmware instead of 6.1.6, and make sure to select it before jailbreak and before the first tethered boot. p0sixspwn is another good tool
