Thank You GreenpoisOn. Finally jailbroke my ipod touch 2g mc model. Was so easy to do! took about 1 min to jailbreak. Waited so long for this.

i keep reading where people say that they jailbroke there ipod touch where did they find the download to do this every time i go to download it it says 3 and 4 g nothing about 2 g

PyBrick October 25, 2010, 2:27 am

I used the official firmware directly from iTunes and was able to jailbreak my ipt2g MB after 2 attempts with GreenPois0n. I’m not sure if SHSH applies to ipt2g, but if save your current SHSH blobs with TinyUmbrella, upgrade to iOS4.1 with iTunes, and follow the steps using GreenPois0n to jailbreak. Note: MC models seem to have trouble with this jailbreak, although a few have got it to work.

PyBrick October 25, 2010, 2:29 am

Well, I went to the link provided in this guide and found 4.1 for ipt2g just fine. Here’s the direct link http://appldnld.apple.com/iPhone4/061-7937.20100908.ghj4f/iPod2,1_4.1_8B117_Restore.ipsw

I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong! I’ve tried it multiple times. I followed the directions to the letter and still nothing. (ipod touch 2g 8gb MC model)

lou56 October 27, 2010, 4:46 am

thesaipankid October 20, 2010, 1:00 am

magicfwomp October 20, 2010, 2:59 am

Sonsum October 20, 2010, 9:16 am

RDilus October 20, 2010, 9:39 pm

xfsasx October 21, 2010, 4:11 pm

Works but iPod app is freaking out and can’t use Bluetooth headset!!

PyBrick October 21, 2010, 8:15 pm

It worked on the second attempt. Thank you iPhoneHeat for the support and guide, and the creators of GreenPois0n for the ipt2g MB jailbreak!

Wonderwall October 21, 2010, 10:12 pm

it didn’t work for me (iPod touch 2G MC model 8gb)

PyBrick October 22, 2010, 6:07 am

It looks like GreenPois0n is unable to successfully jailbreak 4.1 on iPod Touch 2G MC based on so many of the reviews here. Perhaps they can be forwarded this issue and hopefully they can work out a solution.

PyBrick October 22, 2010, 6:08 am

Well a few got the MC to jailbreak, though.

magicfwomp October 23, 2010, 3:29 am

What about 2g mc on 4.0?…as can downgrade easy enough.

PyBrick October 23, 2010, 11:14 am

I honestly have no clue. If you try it with iOS 4.0, please report back as other readers may want to do the same.

Bruce October 21, 2010, 11:46 pm

this works afterall. thanks a lot!
My configuration: IPT-2G MB (Non-MC) IOS 4.1, with using this Greenpois0n RC4 step by step.

oteb1990 October 26, 2010, 10:37 am

ok i tried it and it worked for my ipod touch 2g mb model, at first i was having trouble but i used umbrella-4.1.6 and saved my shsh and then tried greenpois0n again and it finally worked for me.

lou56 October 27, 2010, 4:40 am

I got my iod touch jailbroke and it worked the first time with green poison 2g 4.1 thanks

pedanticOne October 29, 2010, 8:58 am

lol @ exactly similar….what a dumnb statement…how can anything be exactly similar

PyBrick October 29, 2010, 10:22 pm

From: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/grammarlogs/grammarlogs192.htm

“One of my dictionaries makes a point of saying that “similar” means that things are not exactly the same, but that they are comparable in essentials. Similar geometric forms, for example, share exactly the same angles, but they’re different in size. Another dictionary, however, uses the negative construction, saying that “no two animal habitats are exactly similar.” Personally, I would think that when things become exactly similar, they’re no longer similar; they’re the same.”

tuga2 October 30, 2010, 12:30 am

iPhoneHeat October 30, 2010, 1:40 am

hold down the home + power button for 10 sec and then release Home btn while keep pressing the pwr… iPod will get out of recovery
you can try Limera1n if GP is not working for you

FreePass October 31, 2010, 6:55 am

Ipod 2nd gen 8gb MB model (non-MC)
After a clean restore to 4.1, and restore of my settings and docs from a previous save, I followed step by step the instructions.
* First attempt with greenpoison failed. In greenpoison, the end of the process told me to quit and restart to try again. I could not power my Ipod on (screen always black).
* Second attempt, but this time my ipod screen lighted up during the process, and managed to finish.
* Don’t forget to start the Loader App (white icon) in the menu after jailbreaking.

ionbasa November 15, 2010, 9:11 am

worked like a charm. Did not know it had a boot loader…..hmmm linux 😉

Nemicyst86 November 21, 2010, 10:04 am

My iPod 2nd Gen, doesnt go into DFU mode.
I turn it off, i try to put it into DFU mode but it never works, it just turns back on.

daniel December 1, 2010, 5:17 am

It worked fine! Thanks GreenPois0n! 🙂

Youssef December 1, 2010, 10:20 pm

I have a 2nd generation MB (Non MC model) iPod touch.
I open greenpois0n, and follow the steps. IT SEES DFU MODE. I click the jailbreak button, and the program says jailbreak failed, try again.
Ok, I have tried again. And again. And again. Step by step to the T. I need HELP. Limera1n won’t work, either. I am also hesitant to use redsn0w, as i have had a horror story a while ago where redsn0w caused wifi to be disabled! O.O …. How about snowbreeze? any tips? I just need to be jailbroken! XD That’s the final output i need. (I have been jailbroken before.)

KyleGas2011 December 2, 2010, 11:46 pm

it works but it keeps crashing on me all the time sometimes it crashes like 20 times in 2mins so whats up this that

Chidzeh December 8, 2010, 2:54 am

Worked a treat, got it all up and running within 2 or 3 minutes. GOOD JOB! 🙂

Wei December 12, 2010, 6:19 am

I just jailbroke my ipod touch 2g on ios 4.1!!(MB version)
For those of you who couldn’t greenpoison your ipod touch 2g, USE THE MAC VERSION INSTEAD!!!!
I tried million times on Windows and couldn’t jb but once I switched to Mac, it worked like a charm!!!! Obviously the Windows version of gp has a bug.

Thanks a lot! I hope this’ll benefit people who couldn’t do it.

asdfasdf December 12, 2010, 4:32 pm

Xtime February 17, 2011, 2:57 pm

Same thing is with me! We need help

rystan February 17, 2011, 9:52 pm

Unable to jailbreak my touch 2g 4.1 following these steps. It gets to the gp skull boot anim then reverts back after a short reboot, then back to normal again. isn’t the cydia app supposed to be there afterwords, or am I wrong? How can I tell?

white icon loader February 23, 2011, 5:08 pm

yo guys i jailbroke it but in my springboard i see a white icon that says loader and everytime i tap on it it will quickly open and close.. help

Click Me HERE!!!!!!!!!!! February 25, 2011, 4:12 am

@white icon loader

we do have the same problem. The white icon is there but nothing happens after you tap it…. help

tpurdin March 16, 2011, 10:40 am

I have the 2g mc model on 4.1 and I have tried jailbreaking. Says successful however the loader app will not open same as above mentioned. I tried jailbreaking a second time and same thing. guess we will have to upgrade or downgrade to get one that works unless you want to use redsn0w but i think that is a tethered method and you need to use redsn0w to boot your ipod everytime you shut it off and want to boot it up again. If anyone figures anything out with the mc model please let me know.

ello March 23, 2011, 3:20 am

hey yall

ello March 23, 2011, 3:21 am

hey gw

Kat March 26, 2011, 8:39 pm

Okay I jailbroke it and it says it was successful (2g MC 4.1 iPod touch) But now on my page is a button called loader and when I click on it, it just closes, what is this? And I notice nothing different besides that >.<

jex May 21, 2011, 10:45 am

To all people who have trouble with the white loader:
Instead of RC6 use RC4. Works great!

aiman July 27, 2011, 8:55 pm

tq very much.. not try it yet but at last i found what i can do for my ipod

Taz July 27, 2011, 1:16 pm
