Redsn0w is not iPod Touch 2G MC model compatible. Use sn0wbreeze 2.9.1 simple mode to create a prejailbroken 4.2.1 cfw and do pwned dfu restore.

Unfirtunately, sn0wbreeze is your oly other option if greenpois0n doesnt work for you. You can use bootcamp on your mac or ou can borrow a win machine, create the sn0wbreeze cfw, copy cfw to your mac and do pwned dfu restore on your mac.

You can use greenpois0n RC6.1 to jailbreak it. greenpois0n is a little finicky though so you may have to try a few times before it works. See this guide to greenpois0n for some tips.

Can you explain in more detail what seems to be happening? We might be able to figure out what's going wrong.

Unfortunately with a MC model you just have to use greenpois0n or sn0wbreeze. Maybe try jailbreaking your device with a different computer?

You need to be in pwned dfu mode before doing itunes restore. Also check your host file to make sure its pointed to apple servers, not cydia.

I have done a lot of research on this topic and even posted to reddit about it. What i have figured out is that Sn0wbreeze is the only way to get an untethered jailbreak with an iPT 2 nd gen on iOS 4.2.1 reliably, people have been complaining about Greenpois0n not working properlyAs you can see this post(that we are on right now) and this post, and Redsn0w will only perform a tethered jailbreak (only on MC Models) this was pointed out in the comments of my reddit post by /u/reeiiko
