When I try to jailbreak my iPod touch 4.2.1 2g it keeps saying jailbreak failed and to restart to retry.

What do I do?

It appears that several people have issues with getting there iPod 2g's jailbroken using Greenpois0n. Some dont have any issue of course, but there are "several" here that do.

If you keep haveing issues with GP not jailbreaking your iPod 2g, try Redsnow

Heres a link with direct links to the files you need to download to get it jailbroken. As well as a tutorial to help you get it jailbroken also.

Good Luck
