Dude 4.0 runs dog slow. I mean a jb is better than nothing but still its horrid. 4.2.1 runs decent on iPod 2g's and iPhone 3G's. If you cant get GP to jailbreak your iPod 2g or even a iPhone 3g, try redsnow.

Heres a link that gives you direct links to the files you need and a direct link to a tutorial that will help you get your 4.2.1 jailbroken on a iPod 2g. It works and works great and its untethered!

Good Luck!
