I have a 4th Gen iPod Touch and I used Green Poison AND Limera1n, both of which says the jailbreak was successful but no icons were installed for me to install Cydia. Can anyone help?

Please provide more detail.

I don't know your firmware version (btw limera1n nor gp works with 4.2.1).
I don't know if your definition of no icon correlates to ghost icons or not.
I don't know if you used the loader to install cydia or not.

Please reply with the needed information.

I had a similar problem, run through the steps.

If you are running 4.2.1 stop reading, they will say it's "jailbroken", but it is really not.

1. I used Limera1n and did not receive an icon either. I had to use Greenpois0n.

2. When you used GreenPois0n, did you see command-line run on your touch? If not, it's not jailbroken.

3. Try redsn0w, it's not as simple, but it is way more effective.

4. If you... Wait... I thought it was impossible to jailbreak a iPT 4G right now!:eek:

You can't use limera1n and gp to jailbreak 4.2.1.

Use Redsnow. It's tethered, but how often do you turn off your ipod?
