    It will work.
    iTunes 9.2 latest should be ideal
    But you'll probably lose all your app save data

    Before you restore, you should backup the iPod in iTunes first.

    WAIT!!!!

    You can just update the firmware.

    When its updated, you'll have all of your stuff, just the jailbreak won't be in effect until you go to jailbreakme.com

    Don't press the update to latest firmware button.

    Just restore your iPod to Factory Settings. It will automatically install the latest firmware. It's just pressing the 'Update Firmware' thingo that will send into bootloop
