    http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

    Go to that URL, on the second drop down menu select "iPod touch 2G (4.0/8A293)"
    Download it (will take a while) then plug your iPod in, go to iTunes, and hold Shift (Option/Alt on Mac) and click restore with that held down. Select the ipsw file you just downloaded. It should update you to 4.0. Then go to jailbreakme.com on Mobile Safari and jailbreak.
    Have fun!

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but if you're on that outdated firmware but up to date with iTunes, you're still going to have hell to update to anything other than 4.1. tinyumbrella, shsh, and the sort.
