How many different ways are there to unfold an icosahedron?

Are you saying: if you label each side (the inside and outside) and vertex of each face, then how many ways can you arrange the faces so that they will "fold" back to the original shape?

Can two faces be connected only by a vertex?

Are you asking us to do your homework for you?

I had thought about taking the first comment with: "lots," but I thought it might be flagged as snarky.

Thanks for validating me, driveler.
