These are instructions on how to perform a tethered jailbreak your iPod touch 2G using your Mac. This is a preliminary release of redsn0w from the iPhone Dev-Team. It is not supported in anyway and may void your warranty or brick your iPod.

After performing the jailbreak your iPod touch 2G will not be bootable without assistance from a tethered computer. Unless you really need a jailbreak we suggest waiting till the iPhone Dev-Team releases an untethered jailbreak.

That being said these are very detailed, very long instructions to help you as best possible.
