    You can jailbreak 3.0 firmware easier than it is to jailbreak 2.2.1

    Put it in DFU Mode, and Shift+Restore to a legal 3.0 firmware file.
    Then, download redsn0w 0.8 and use that to jailbreak.

    Much easier than QuickFreedom or redsn0w 0.3
    (Im assuming you used QuickFreedom)

    Hey heres the exact process i took to downgrade to 3.0 and then redsn0w 0.8 actually jailbroke it without a problem ok here we go

    download fw 3.0 for your ipod touch i have 1g download 3.0 for which ever suits your ipod

    Fw can be found here.. [redacted]

    then open itunes and connect your ipod go to the ipod section in itunes and hold down shift and click on restore. Browse your computer and select the 3.0 fw. Itunes lets you downgrade only to 3.0 i believe. Let it load and verify 3.0 is on your ipod..

    Then download redsn0w 0.8 from this ******* link
    http://*******s.[PIRACY.tb].org/4989699/redsn0w-win_0.8.zip.4989699.TPB.*******

    open redsn0w and select the 3.0 software that you downloaded earlier.. it will patch it..

    Then you will have to put the phone in DFU mode not recovery mode... to get into DFU, hold the power and the center button and plug in the usb cable as soon as you start holding the two buttons down after 10 secs let go of the power button while still holding the center button. then keep holding the center button for 30 seconds.. redsn0w should then detect your phone is in DFU and finish up the patching.. AND BAM YOUR DONE...
    i hope this helps
