These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPod Touch 5G or iPod Touch 4G on iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2 using Evasi0n for Windows.

Step One
Ensure your iPod touch is on iOS 6.0 to iOS 6.1.2 then perform a backup of your iPod touch using these instructions.

Step Two
Create a folder called Pwnage on your desktop and download the latest version of the Evasi0n utility into the folder. You can find download links for Evasi0n here.

Step Three
Extract the Evasi0n zip file to the Pwnage folder on your desktop.

Step Four
Double click the newly created evasi0n-win folder to open it.

Step Five
Right click the Evasi0n exe icon then select Run as Administrator from the contextual menu to launch the application.

Step Six
Ensure your iPod touch is connected to the computer via a USB cable if you haven't already.

Step Seven
Remove any lock screen passcodes on your device then click the Jailbreak button to begin.

Step Eight
The app will retrieve information from the device to generate jailbreak data, inject stage 1 jailbreak data, reboot the device, wait for the device to be ready, inject stage 2 jailbreak data, upload Cydia, and upload the Cydia packages list.

Step Nine
You will then be asked to unlock your device and tap the new 'Jailbreak' app icon. It is imperative that you only tap the icon once. The app will open and immediately close.

Step Ten
Evasi0n will then inject the remount payload, remount the root filesystem, prepare the final jailbreak data, inject the final jailbreak data, and complete!

Step Eleven
Your iPod touch will now reboot with Cydia on the SpringBoard!
