    Once you have successfully jailbroken your iPod Touch, you need to install appsync. Once done, you can sync apps over via iTunes like you would a normal app.

    You first want to know what firmware it's on.
    Go to Settings>General>About and scroll down to the version. Post it here and we'll see which Jailbreak you need.

    Hmmm, That's the firmware I am also on. I recommend you wait for the Greenpois0n untethered 4.2.1 Jailbreak, it'll be out soon. otherwise you should use Redsn0w version 0.9.6, though it is tethered. If you have a Mac, use 0.9.7, though it's in beta and could have some bugs.

    Yes, you can replace it, but it requires restoring the device, basically deleting and resetting everything on it, but that shouldn't be a problem, since you'll have everything backed up on iTunes. Although, if you had a problem like me, it might be a little hard restoring it, since you might have to restore it in DFU mode, or recovery mode.

    Also, Tethered means that, if you were to turn off your device, or it were to run out of battery, you would have to connect it to your computer and use redsn0w's "boot untethered" option to be able to successfully turn it on, otherwise it'll just be stuck on the apple logo screen.

    if it was purchased on the apple app store you sync it with itunes, just select your device, go to the "apps" tab and select the ones you want, then hit apply and your done. however if it downloaded elsewhere ie google search then it will be a .ipa: to syc you need to add the hackulous repositry and install appsync for 4.2 through cydia.

    Skip to the part the says Jailbreaking with redsn0w (jailbreaks iOS 3.0-4.2.1) and scroll down to redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 for iOS 3.2.2-4.2.1.

    it's the ipsw, basicly a firmware. to find it:

    go to start->search folder options->view->show hidden files/folders->apply then ok

    next navigate to: C:->your user->appdata->roaming->apple computer->itunes->iPod software updates->iPod_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw (as long as t says 4.2.1 then thats the right one)

    @Lacius he has redsn0w already

    if you still can't find it download it at felixbruns.de

    Nope, it only says iPhone 4 in the link. Anyways, add the repo cydia.hackulo.us in cydia and download [Redacted] for games, but it's illegal if you use it in the wrong way, and i'm not making you download it.

    well really all he needs is appsync, no need for [Redacted]

    and to put the games onto your iPod al you do is..

    open up cydia, manage, sources then add cydia.hackulo.us
    then once added, download Appsync for 4.2
    on your PC open up the game. by double clickiong it and then itunes will add it to the list, (do it for the 2 games you have)
    next plug in your ipod, click on your ipod then select the Apps tab, select the 2 games and hit apply
    wait for itunes to install them and once finished, you'll have the games installed
