After releasing iOS 4.3.1 PwnageTool bundle for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPad, DjayB6 (@DjayB6) has just released PwnageTool bundle for iPod Touch 4G users. DjayB6 has also updated Ramdisk Fixer to v1.7.2 which now fixes error 2 during custom IPSW restore through iTunes.
Note: Although you can jailbreak your iPod Touch 4G on iOS 4.3.1 using this bundle but still it will be a tethered jailbreak. Tethered jailbreak means you have to use TetheredBoot Utility to put your iPod into tethered jailbroken state on every restart. If you do not care about tethered jailbreak, proceed to the instructions below or wait for iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak. Comex (@Comex) and Chronic-Dev Team (@P0sixninja) is already working on iOS 4.3.1/4.1 untethered jailbreak.
