    You can't upgrade to that version unless you have shsh blob files saved for 5.0. You have to upgrade to 5.1.1 which shouldn't be a problem as Absinthe 2.0 has just been released which will jailbreak you ipod and it will be un-tethered.

    If you get any problems, give me a shout here.

    You need to use iTunes on your PC or Mac buddy. Can't be done with a link.

    All you need to do is hook up your iPod to iTunes and then there will be a button to upgrade the software.

    Have you got access to a pc or mac? Sorry if this sounds like a silly question. Just trying to understand what you are doing??

    Yes, PC.
    iTunes does not connect to the internet though. It has problems.

    I can make it work if i need to by removing some other software I would rather not though.

    Thanks for your time!

    Well, you can download the ipsw files separately, you don't need iTunes for that: Downloads for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple TV
