    Ok well there is no jailbreak for 4.0.2, MC yet. There seems to be some rumor circulating that there is but the official word from saurik is that there isn't. You could try downgading to 4.0 or 4.0.1 and jailbreaking that. But I don't know if apple has stopped signing for 4.0 and 4.0.1 yet.

    iPod Touches don't run 4.0.1 - It's only for iPhones. - 4.0.2 is released, which runs both iDevices.

    How to Jailbreak

    Ok first you need to downgrade to 4.0(downnload the .ipsw here: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/) this is down by putting your device into DFU mode and plugging it into the computer. Then control(windows)/command(mac) the restore button and select the .ipsw you downloaded.

    It takes 2-10 minutes to restore. When it is down go to JailbreakMe.com and "slide to jailbreak" it SHOULD then ask if you wish to jailbreak your iPod and then you say yes. If safari crashes or you just get

    PROBLEMS! ) this is down by putting your device into DFU(with your device off hold down the sleep/wake button and the home button for 10 seconds and then release the sleep button for 5-10 seconds or until you get the plug into itunes screen.) mode and plugging it into the computer. Then control(windows)/command(mac) the restore button and select the .ipsw you downloaded.

    It takes 2-10 minutes to restore. When it is done go to JailbreakMe.com on your device and "slide to jailbreak" it SHOULD then ask if you wish to jailbreak your iPod and then you say yes. If safari crashes or you just get a purple screen look below:

    PROBLEMS!

    1).You can get a iTunes error this is because you didn't put it into DFU mode correctly or the .ipsw is not for your device.(this is pretty error is pretty unlikely).

    2).If safari crashes when you "slide to jailbreak" check to see if you have an app called,"Game Center" if so you need to restore your device to a .ipsw, one that was off the site I gave you. Or the sever is full and then you can try going to "jailbreakme.modmyi.com".(this is common).

    3).If you get a purple screen on safari when you "slide to jailbreak" go to settings under safari's settings delete Cache, history, and cookies. Then also make sure that JavaScript is turned on!

    I AM JAILBROKEN NOW WHAT?
    Now you have a app called Cydia. There are many youtube videos that show some cool themes and apps you can get.

    HAVE FUN!
