How to fix some mysterious problems.

i have a 2nd gen ipod that i used spirit to jailbeark it with then i had to restore it because an infinite boot loop and it updated to 4.2.1 and i tried jail breaking it with Greenpois0n but it failed. i tried it again when the release of greenpioson rc6 was out and that still failed. i heard that running greenpoison as admin and putting it in Windows XP compatible mode it would run fine, i did that and still no luck. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try jailbreaking it with the latest version of redsn0w (redsn0w 0.9.10b7) - it has iPod touch 2g MC model support now. Remember to run redsn0w as admin and set compatibility modes, and let us know if it works!

Another option is to use sn0wbreeze: (Windows-only).
