    Follow the instructions on redsn0w. When it says it is finished, go to iTunes, select your iPod from the sidebar and click "Restore" WHILE holding shift. This will open up a window where you can select the firmware that redsn0w asked for at the beginning of the jailbreaking. After it restores (which may take a while) you will have Cydia/Icy depending on your choice in redsn0w. Tah-dah!

    As long as your iPod is already on 3.0 but not jailbroken, it should work...Also,when you shift+click restore, make sure you choose the exact same file you entered in redsn0w. The file you enter in redsn0w should be the exact same file currently on your iPod.

    When you have your iPod selected on your iTunes sidebar, it has the sowtware version you should have 3.0 and not jailbroken before you run redsn0w.
