    So, if limera1n doesn't work for 2g mc ipod touches, and for some reason I'm stuck at the waiting for reboot screen, what can I do to jailbreak one on 4.1?

    Limera1n now deletes itself from your springboard, but install cydia first as it will uninstall as soon as you press the now new delete button

    cannot uplaod images as they are too large

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Limera1n worked on my iPad. Although the Limera1n app itself was a little messed up, it did its job, and Cydia appeared after a reboot.

    Looks like it needs to run as if it were an iPhone app and not an iPad app. [​IMG]

    Lies! i have an MC on 4.1 and no matter how much i try, it does not work. also, your "proof" only proves that you are on 4.1 and jailbroken. if you can prove you are jailbroken with limera1n, call me up and let me know.

    @idontcare25: You're obviously new to the Apple jailbreaking scene.
    All 3rd generation iPod touches are mc models. But the true third generation ones are the 32 and 64gb versions since their internals are different (faster). The 8gb version is actually a 2g MC model., whereas a "real" 2g iPod touch is an mb model. Limera1n doesn't currently support 2g mc models. On top of all this, I have also tested limera1n on a 3rd gen 32gb iPod touch (aka real 3rd gen) on 4.1, and it works.

    By the way, limera1n rc1 is out of beta, but still no mc 2g support.

    ^ Ipod touch 2g (MC) isn't supported yet, but will be soon, along with, as you said, the Apple TV.

    EDIT: Tried greenpois0n on my iPad, it works fine.

    Updated with iREB and greenpois0n! [​IMG]

    If you don't see the greenpois0n screenshots, you might need to delete your browser's cache; I jumped the gun a bit and updated the guide before uploading the screenshots. [​IMG]

    10/14 EDIT: Also updated the guide to mention limera1n for Mac OS X. I have also added icons to show what operating system each jailbreak utility works with.
