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.
