    hey all, ive been looking and hunting, and spending so many hours trying to find a jailbreak for my ipod touch 2G MC 4.1. ive read so many articles watched tutorials, and searched multiple forums, all to discover that redsn0w is capable of doing so as well as sn0wbreeze. sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 i havent much faith in but it gets stuck at waiting for iBSS. ive tried at this point putting in recovery and within the program it says its all good, but no "waiting for custom firmware" appears on my ipod screen. in resn0w 0.9.6 b1 for windows, i put the ipod in dfu mode and it instantly gets "stuck" at "waiting for reboot" within redsn0w. grenpois0n has been released but it only supports down to 3G devices. I...NEED...HELP!

    We're in the same boat. Only I got redsn0w to kidna half work. When it says waiting for reboot, either pull out your dock connector and reconnect it very quickly. Your iPod will flash white and it will proceed. Or Hold Sleep+Home and reboot that way and it should work. If all else fails, it will just tell you to restart with putting it into DFU.

    I personally went through the whole process and got no Cydia so I'm not hopeful.

    I am also trying to jailbreak my 2nd gen iPod Touch. I downloaded limera1n for the Mac, did the whole jailbreak thing, and it says that it is jailbroken, yet there is no limera1n icon or cydia icon. I will follow this thread to see if anyone comes up with anything.

    Greenpois0n rc4 has just been released. It is said to jailbreak iPod 2g mc and mb models. I just used it to jailbreak my mc model 2g ipod touch. So you guys should give it a try

    Tried Greenpois0n on my iPod, and it just about bricked it. Deleted Limera1n and Greenpois0n from my Mac, and am just gonna keep it the way it is. Simply not worth the headache.

    ive "bricked" mine multiple times, simply hold home and power and itll go into recovery mode or back to its regular function. you must hold them for like a minute or so (unplugged from PC), then start the jailbreaking process over. use ireb and click on the second tab to access the recovery loop fixer if it goes into recovery, this way you wont need to use itunes to do a restore and try again.
