    I'm gonna jailbrake my iPod but have some questions. What's the chance of getting bricked and do I need to downgrade my 4.0 firmware? How do I do that?

    I believe if you use 4.0 you can use jailbreakme.com

    It's pretty hard to get it bricked. What firmware are you on currently?

    What model is your iPod touch? Because it's a lot better if you updated to 4.0.2, then jailbroke with Redsn0w, depending on the Model number.

    However, if you want the SHSH for 4.0, then jailbreak now with jailbreakme.com.

    DO NOT do this. 4.0.2 has been known to break many users' jailbreak. If you have iOS 4.0, use redsn0w 9.5b5. Jailbreaking the device also disables the PDF exploit, though you can still choose to download a patch from Cydia.

    I am currently running version 4.0(that's what my iPod says)

    I'm planning on using jailbrakeme.com. Because I'm running 4.0 will jailbroken apps work on my iPod? My friend downloaded mewseek on his iPod and it just crashes(he tried both versions)

    Depending on your firmware, you can use Redsn0w to jailbreak your iPod touch or sn0wbreeze

    Why not upgrade to 4.2.1 and use greenpois0n? iOS 4.2.1 is the latest (and final) upgrade for the iPod Touch 2G.
