    Actually, the simplest way (as long as you don't have a brand new iPod. Is to simply download blackra1n. Why is everyone recommending PwnageTool today?!

    See? This is why it's always best to go the "simple" route.

    Dude, just Update your iPod firmware to 3.1.2 through iTunes. Now, download blackra1n from blackra1n.com. Connect your iPod to your computer. Click "Make it rain" on blackra1n. Wait about 2 minutes.

    That's it. Your jailbroken.

    NOW, go to your homescreen. You'll have a new app called "blackra1n". Open it.

    Click "Cydia" and install it.

    Follow all instructions. When it asks, you are a GRAPHICAL USER.

    Let the phone do it's thing. Then you're done.

    Because PwnageTool allows an untethered jailbreak of new devices while blackra1n fails to do this?

    Now that you got the help you needed I just wanted to correct a few things you thought. If your touch or phone is Jailbroken(JB) and you update to OEM Apple firmware it will wipe out the JB and therefore Cydia and other JB apps. If your phone freezes when you're JB you should always try to reboot it by holding down the power on top and home button until the screen turns black. Then power it back on, it make take a long time on the Apple logo when booting up just be patient unless it's taking an unreasonable amount of time. IPSW is the firmware file/package you can create custom ones this is Jailbreaking the phone by running it on the custom firmware. It doesn't matter which computer your phone is JB on it can be done on any computer especially if it's been restored fresh and you are re-JB. You just have to download the tool and install it on whichever computer you want to use to do the JB.

    This is not directed at anyone in particular but if there are multiple tools to unlock there isn't a problem of mentioning one over the other. I myself prefer and always use pwnage tool for my own phone but I have used blackra1n and others at other times. So whichever you choose just make sure you search and find out the whole method before you start to JB.

    I don't know where you got your jformRion, friend, but Pwnage Tool does NOT 'work around' the bootrom issues. It will NOT fix tethered jailbreaks. You're spreading around bad information man. You simply didn't have a phone that had the new bootrom. That's a far a it goes.

    Jformrion - Jesus! That's opposed to say "information".
