How do you jailbreak a 2G iPod Touch with 3.1.2 firmware? Answered

I've searched on 'ibles for the answer, but every 'ible is different, and most of them don't make any sense. I want an easy to understand, simple solution. To be more specific about the model, I have an 8GB 2nd Generation iPod Touch, with the new 3.1.2 firmware. I just got it today. Any help is appreciated!

jail-breaking is fairly simple if you just use a program in the internet. your ipod touch uses firmware similar to the one on the iphone 3g so google that on the internet and try it out. I have already jail-broken my 2g ipod touch (3.1.2 firmware) and its great so i know its possible. sorry i forgot what program i used so i cant help you there.

wow..... right after i posted my last answer i realized that in the related tab there was a link to an ible for it :)

So far I have run blackra1n, and have installed Cydia with it. So now I can download anything from the Cydia store. Is it possible to download from the App Store for free?

no, cidia only allows you to install 3rd party software onto ur itouch like changing themes and other apps not available in the app store. however i have heard rumors going around that there is a trick to doing that. try researching on google about that and tell me if you found something!

I found it. Either download a cracked app and add it directly to your device using SSH, or download with Hackulous.
