How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have a 4th generation iPod touch jailbroken with 4.2.1, and would like to upgrade it to the latest iOs. I've searched here and am confused. Can someone please explain the process, I can use Redsnow, enter DFU mode etc etc. but I'm just not sure on the correct procedure. Thx in advance :)

Please check the FAQ. Since you have an iPod Baseband doesn't matter. Go to iTunes, connect Device, press update. Once it updates and everything is done, download the latest redsn0w, follow on screen instructions and you should be jailbroken.
