    GreenPois0n should work. Retry it.

    Use greenpois0n. It's a lot cooler and it changes your apple logo to the greenpois0n logo when you start your divice. ITS AWWWWSOOOME

    Greenpois0n works fine. You might have to go through the dfu process multiple times for it to finally work. Just be sure to hold the home button even after successful dfu mode all the way through the process until you see the apple logo/greenpois0n come on.

    Jailbreakme doesn't work on 4.0.2 either

    Ya, use greenpois0n. I have the same device, and the first time I tried to jailbreak with greenpois0n, everything went OK. But when I tried to install Cydia from loader.app, it seemed like it worked. But when I tried to open Cydia it said "Initializing Filesystem... Cydia will exit when complete" for like a second then my iPod resprang. To fix that, you have to do a restore and then re-jailbreak, or at least that's what I had to do.

    Hope I helped!

    Lol it say's "What's jailbreaking?" under my name.... How many posts is it on this forum to get that thing to change to a different one?

    I just jailbroke my iPod Touch 2nd gen on 4.2.1 last night. It went perfectly. I used GreenPois0n RC5. It was at Redmond Pie. I can't remember the whole URL, but you should be able to find it there. There are step-by-step instructions and a video. Good luck.

    I have same problem with you , and was so desperate none of the thread in the forum can solve this problem until i found this one

    1. use sn0wbreeze 2.2 <- there are plenty tutorial in google how to use this
    2.after snowbreeze create restore file , do not restore first
    3. use IREB r5 , run and follow the intsruction , let it repair the phone
    4. then restore the ipod using restore file that is created by sn0wbreeze

    it 100% worked for my ipod touch 2g mc model 4.2.1 ...

    have a good try ..

    Sn0wbreeze and Greenpois0n are probably the best... Never tried Blackra1n though.

    I used GP and after a couple times the Cydia loader failed. You have to WinSCP into the device and remove the line that says Cydia.loader and then exit and hit the Cydia.loader icon again and the JB will complete. Hope this helps.

    hey i dont know if you got this settled yet but i just ran across the same issue with a friends old ipod touch 2g 4.2.1 i tried greenp0ison around 3 times. each time failed, so the 4th time i did something a little different. once it says your ready to jailbreak do not release the homebutton hold it for another 12-15 seconds. then after that time release,then select jailbreak. finally it worked for me. hope this helps in someway
