I am looking to jailbreak my iPod Touch with blackra1n, but I have to downgrade to 4.0 to make it work. Please suggest methods to downgrade or other ways to jailbreak an iPod Touch 4th gen on 4.2.1.

    If you would like to set up and add Siri to your iDevice to try it out with SiriTD proxy host, here’s our JBU Team step-by-step guide regarding how to set up Siri:

    1) Install Spire: Go to Cydia > Manage > Sources > Edit > Add > Enter: http://freemanrepo.com/repo> Add source > Done

    2) Now you will be well guided for the resources number exactly where you are going to pick the source you would like the following:

    3) Choose the tweak > Install

    4) Restart your iOS device. As soon as it boots up, the Siri is downloaded from Apple’s own servers.

    5) Once you restart your iDevice, Go to Settings -> Spire then add this as a proxy host: https://SiriTD.com:123

    6) Set up iPhone 4S certification file

    7) Email the certificate file to yourself

    Open the certificate file on your device from your email.

    9) Respring or Reboot your iDevice!

    I have a iPod 4th Gen, and I could only Jailbreak my 4.2.1 With RedSn0w. You can DeGrade the Firmwire, But this is easier.

    Search the following: "RedSn0w" or "Jailbreakme".
    There working on a "JailBreakMe" 4.2.1, but not 100% complete. Hope That i helped =D

      Jenifer,

      I recommend that you submit a new question using the 'Ask a Question' button on MakeUseOf Answers. Please thoroughly describe what you did to your iPod, what happened, what you see now, e.g. error messages, and what you tried to fix it already. Thanks!

       Trucy,

      if you continue to have issues with your operating system, feel free to 'Ask a Question' to get help. Please add as much information as you can, for example what is the operating system you are using, what is the exact error message, what triggered the error etc.

    You can find a list of possible jailbreaks on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS_jailbreaking)

    To downgrade your iPod Touch you will have to download the desired Firmware for your devices generation.
    http://www.ijailbreak.com/iphone/where-to-download-iphone-firmware-restore-links/

    How to identify your device: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1353

    To restore the downloaded Firmware on your device:
    1. open iTunes and connect the USB cable WITHOUT your iPod Touch
    2. turn off your iPod Touch (hold the sleep/wake button, use the slider)
    3. press and hold the Home button and connect the USB cable
    4. now your iPod should show the connect to iTunes image and iTunes should have detected a device in Recovery Mode.
    5. in iTunes press the Shift key while clicking on Restore
    6. select the downloaded Firmware to restore it
