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

evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 untethered. p0sixspwn can jailbreak iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 untethered (see here for 6.1.6).
How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1.x is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1.x to 7.0.x.

Hi, so I have an iPod Touch 2nd Generation with an iOS of 4.2.1. I had it jailbroken so I could update the iOS to at least 4.3 or higher. Is there any way I could do this? (I used greenpoison) Also, what are the other perks to having it jailbroken? Thanks a bunch!!!

No. Buy a newer model iPod if you want higher firmware.
