This is my first instructable on how to jailbreak an ipod touch with firmware 4.2.1 or lower.  Jailbreaking you ipod gives you many opportunities for free stuff like music and videos, you have a theme on your ipod and so much more.  A lot of people may think it takes a genius to jailbreak an ipod touch but I'm 15 and i have jailbroken 4 out of 4 i have tried to.  also it is an un-tethered jailbreak and it doesnt work for 2nd gen ipod touches that are mc models.  you can find out the model the same place the firmware is.

Step 3: Save the File

Step 4: Install/ Open Greenpois0n

Step 5: Jailbreak Your Ipod

instructions are on the picture.

Step 6: Download Cydia

go to your ipod and on the last page there is an app titled loader. open tht and download cydia.

I have a iPod 2nd Gen. And I'm wondering if there is anyway that I can jailbreak it? I've downloaded the same software twice and I tired to jailbreak it and it shows the apple logo with a skull design and then when I unlock it, I do not see a "Loader" application. Can you help me?

hi i have the same problem

Worked perfectly well. Thanks so much!
