I recently restored my ipod2,1 on 4.2.1 so i could work with syringe, anthrax, and irecovery on a non-jailbroken ipod. To start off i tried to boot with the greenpois0n kernel so it would run unsigned code for the one boot. I used 'tetheredboot -i iBSS.n72ap -k kernelcache.release.n72' everything worked but the ipod stayed white instead of flashing and showing the lockscreen (booting). So i connected with irecovery -s and heres what it said:
Attempting to validate kernelcache@ 0x09000000 image validation failed but untrusted images are permitted error loading kernelcache
Entering recovery mode, starting command prompt image validation failed but untrused images are permitted loaded ramdisk at 0xc000000 of size 0xf0a000, from image at 0x9000000 Attempting to validate kernelcache @ 0x09000000 image validation failed but untrusted images are permitted error loading kernelcache

I've done an ssh kernel on a 4.2.1 3GS but not a iPod2 and my internal knowledge is very limited. A rough guess: the greenpoison kernel is bad or not built correctly but you're probably already thought of this.

thanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx it worked. i had console access on a injail device which is pretty cool. btw, the ssh is not in the kernel, its in the ramdisk :P the kernel is just to allow all code whether its by apple or not (allows ssh server). l8r im gonna see if i can redo the same stuff but change ssh.tar to have my code again thnx a billion times
