Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 untethered. p0sixspwn can jailbreak iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 untethered (see here for 6.1.6).
How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1 is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to 7.0.x.

So, I'm kinda a noob, and probably missing one very important step, because cydia isn't appearing on my iPod touch.

It has iOS 5.0.1 on it. Using the latest version of redsn0w. I did the following steps-

  1. Click jailbreak button, and enter DFU mode
  2. Check the 'install cydia'
  3. Finish that, then to extras
  4. Just boot
  5. Finish that, and the pineapple appears :D
  6. iPod starts up, but with no cydia!

Help!!! By the way, has this ever happened to any of you?

Did you make sure install cydia was checked when you did the jailbreak bit?

Try redoing it and make sure your iPod touch shows it's done and that nothing failed. Also make sure you're using the latest redsn0w.

Just in case the link goes bad.

Download ifunbox for windows or mac.

navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Caches on your ipod

Delete 'com.apple.mobile.installation.plist'

restart ipod

refill out necessary information.
