    OK, i downloaded QuickFreedom and installed the libUSB but i can't get a checkmark for the original 2.2.1 firmware. I downloaded the original 2.2.1 firmware from QuickFreedom but it still can't locate it on my computer. What do I do?

    If your on 2.2.1 just get redsn0w 0.3 and run it.

    Or better yet buy 3.0 and then jailbreak with blackra1n.

    Redsnow 0.3 is UNTETHERED meaning that your device does not require your computer to boot. You can use Redsn0w all you need to do is to download it and run it with your ipod touch 2g 2.2.1 in DFU mode. There are many tutorials on youtube about redsn0w 0.3 but be sure that you are on 2.2.1 before you follow them.

    A much better idea is to update to 3.1.2 and "get with the program" You will have a much harder time following all the jailbreak stuff running 2.2.1 than with 3.1.2.

    If you decide to update to 3.1.2 then download blackra1n off blackra1n.com and plug your ipod (3.1.2) and run it. You do not need to put your device in DFU.

    To clarify any of this info just use Youtube. There are many guides. But you might want to review what happens and wat limitations there are with 3.1.2 because one you upgrade it is hard to go back
