Hello, i'm new with the jailbreak and i want to know what program is the better (and easier) to Jailbreak my iPod Touch 4 Untethered(4.2.1 8C148)

also I want to question that if my iPod dies during the jailbreak (black screen,no turn on,etc),what can i could do? or its impossible that my iPod dies?

well the easiest jalbreak for you is greenpoison it is a little unreliable, sometimes does not work correctly, the best option for you is redsn0w rc18 for this you will also need a copy of your 4.2.1 firmware from here
As far as black screen, you have probably been hearing about this happening...well it is usually caused by people that are trying to downgrade without the proper shsh. you may also want to make an iFaith ipsw that you may be able to restore to incase something goes wrong.....iFaith does not work 100% of the time though.

Though, when you go into DFU mode to jailbreak the screen will go black for a second or two. "Don't panic."

Ok, I have only the .ipsw of my iPod, nothing more.

Redsn0w is more effective that Greenpois0n?

(in terms of finished Jailbreaks, no error,etc)

P.S: Its a way to go out of DFU mode

Thanks !

GP is less reliable but less work as well. if you already have your Ipsw, I would use Redsn0w because that's all the 'work' is- identifying your Ipsw

lots of people have no issues with GP but some do.

(21 Sep '11, 21:54) jafu53 jafu53's gravatar image

yes it is untethered

(21 Sep '11, 22:03) therealcmac therealcmac's gravatar image

@therealcmac is Redsn0w 0.9.6rc18 certainly "made" for the iOS 4.2.1?

(21 Sep '11, 22:05) jafu53 jafu53's gravatar image

Redsnow works on 4.2.1 and up
