Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.1.3 has been released and is not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

After I jailbroke my iPod 4th generation with redsn0w, it successfully downloaded Cydia. But when I press it, the screen flashes and goes right back to the home screen. I even tried jailbreaking again, but it just did the same thing! I have iOS 5.1, and I used a tethered jailbreak.

you have to boot tethered. Redsn0w>extras>just boot. Why stay on 5.1 when 5.1.1 is untethered??
