    You cannot bypass the iCloud Activation. If you do not know the email address and password for the associated Apple ID, then you have a brick.

    Jailbreaking has nothing to do with it.

    Before you can even think about jailbreak, you should first activate the iPod. As you have noticed already, there is nothing you could do with the iPod prior passing the activation screen, and the only way to pass the activation screen is to enter the right credential requested. Else then forget it, not even Apple will be able to assist you through out the activation. Ask your roommate to provide you with the needed information if the iPod does belongs to him.
