I have a 2G MC model and it didn´t work for me. I made the jailbreak but it doesn´t appear the loader application so you can not install cydia.

Instead of typing out the entire thing again, this should work for the ipod 2g's.

Restore clean via itunes, then try holding down home throughout the entire JB process once you reach DFU

I am having the same issue. I have Ipod touch 2g. I have MB model. I have been trying to jailbreak it with greenpois0n. I keep on getting a failed. I get click the jailbreak button and then I get failed. I was hoping for some suggestions. I thought MC models was the model to give problems. I read this blog.

This link did not work I got this message:

I thank you for any help.
