8. Click browse and search for the .ipsw file. Once snowbreeze has verified it, it will say "Done"
9. Then snowbreeze will ask you "Do you want to activate your iPhone?" If its an iPod touch click no. If its an iPhone on a supported network like AT&T click no. If you want to hacktivate your iPhone click yes. Hacktivation is the process of activating the phone with a non official SIM.

11. Now its time to RESTORE. Go on iTunes, and in devices go to your device. Using the keyboard press SHIFT while using the mouse to press "Restore" Then release the shift button. This will make iTunes allow you to search for the .ipsw file. Remember this .ipsw file is jailbroken. Find the .ipsw file and open it. Now iTunes will install your jailbroken .ipsw file. Wait for iTunes to do its job. Once its finished your device is now jailbroken.

13. Now you can sync your iPod with iTunes and all your stuff will be back on it.
