How can I jailbreak my ipod touch 2G (MC) by using Jailbreakme? (or other tools that do not need a factory reset) USING 4.2.1 Firmware~ It seems that before the launch of Jailbreakme 3.0, Jailbreakme 2.0 supported my device, but I used my ipod touch today and it showed that Jailbreakme do not support my device... So anybody can help??, not support my firmware....

Well I guess OP needs to tell us the current firmware version, I would of expected that info in OP's question, but with hindsight I guess OP has visited current jailbreakme page.....still if not currently jailbroken then OP can just update to 4.2.1 and use Greenpois0n, all data/media will stay intact.

You don't need to restore, but greenpoison is buggy, sometimes Cydia doesn't load properly. And you would need to restore to get it working properly. I would back up before doing it. That being said I've done around 15 phones with GP and only had one mess up. Make sure your computer has an active Internet connection when you are doing it.

If you're gonna bother with the restore first then you may as well use Sn0wbreeze 2.2.1 and get a sure installation of Cydia, I'd try GP as you are, if loader/Cydia cause issues then it's gonna have to be Sn0wbreeze.
