Picture of How to jailbreak ipod touch with firmware 4.2.1 or lower
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.

isn't there another way of doing this without using the sleep button? mine's broken so it's a bit of a problem
do you have to turn the ipod back on or keep it off?
