    there is no such thing as a ipod touch 3g 8gb it would be a 2g MC model if I am correct
    but you can see if your friend has a MB model you can jailbreak it with redsn0w 0.9.6rc8
    mc models are not supported

    That model isn't supported, not even tethered. The new version of Greenpois0n, which should be released in a few days, will probably support it.

    You're correct, however, if you have the SSH blobs from your previous firmware you should be able to do an untethered jailbreak (correct?)

    @fudgenuts64: If you have 4.2b3 SHSH blobs, the 4.2b3 ispw and a mac, yes. Otherwise, you can use other blobs (say, for 4.1) to downgrade and jailbreak.

    why downgrade your firmware when you can jailbreak 4.2.1 untethered without blobs
    for the older models

    mc models are tethered... not to mention that they aren't even supported at all by redsn0w currently.

    ^ It would be easier if you waited. The new Greenpois0n will be out any day now.

    Tethered with Redsn0w. On 4.2.1. On every device except the older ones (mb model, iPhone 3g, etc). Every other firmware on all models is untethered. Do your research or at least read the jailbreak guide.
