Discussing Jailbreaking your iPod isn't allowed here since it violates Apple's EULA.

I suggest using Google for more information.

Jailbreak is a program that "cracks" the protection ("the jail") that Apple built into the iPhone and iPod Touch to stop unauthorized applications from being loaded. As noted above, use of jailbreak is perhaps illegal and definitely in violation of the user agreement for the devices in question. As a result, you will get no assistance on these forums with its use.

I would strongly advise that you cease and desist any effort wrt jailbreak. Remember as well that Apple has promised to open the iPhone (and presumably iPod Touch) to external apps in February by releasing the programming API. Fairly soon, you will be able to load 3rd party apps legally - why bother with the hassle of jailbreak?

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
