Is this an ‘’MC model’’ of the iPod touch 2G? If you’re not sure, you can find your model type in you Settings--> General->About screen. CAUTION: If you have an MC model and you don’t correctly identify it here, you will likely need to do a full official restore to fix the mistake, losing any unsynced data.
Note that MC models cannot yet have custom logos.

I haven't got one myself, but can't ipt2 MC models can have custom animated boot logos via GP ?, I understand they are new bootrom and maybe can't have custom boot logos via Redsn0w/Pwnage, i.e steve jobs & the pwnapple, which have now gone from latest PwnageTool anyway.

MC model is the one with the new boot rom, there is nothing you can do to change this, the boot rom (MC model) will always be the same no matter what you do. You can sell it on eBay and buy yourself another one.

The message you're showing is from redsn0w i guess, why don't you use greenpois0n for jailbreaking? its supports your model with untethered jailbreak (this is good :-)

Ok, so you want to run redsn0w to get the Cydia installed, in this case run redsn0w, once you load the correct ipsw file you will be presented by the checkboxes, make sure you only choose/tick the "Install Cydia" checkbox, all others should be removed.

In case you are not sure if yours is an MC model or not, then just select that it is the MC model (Click the "Yes" button) and go forward.

i know that but i wasnt sure if it was the best ipsw file :)

The MC model (new bootrom) has no effect on the ipsw, for the iPod 2G there is only one unique ipsw for 4.2.1 (the bootrom is not part of the ipsw file)
