How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'd like to know of a simplified, step by step way, to do an untethered jailbreak on my son's 3rd gen ipod 5.1.1. If any1 knows of one, please, could you include links of websites & for downloads, & be sure to keep instructions detailed but simple. Not all of us speak the computer language well, & may not have any business attempting a jailbreak, bc of that. But thanks to this forum, I jailbroke my daughters w/no problems, & am hoping itll go just as smoothly w/his. unfortunately, his isn't supported by method I used b4, & so, I need help.
