How do I jailbreak a 5.1.1 iPod touch a simple way
You first need to download the latest version of Absinthe 2.0, which you'll have to run. You'll therefore need to connect your iPod into your computer and click on the Jailbreak button. You'll notice the Cydia icon, which you'll need to tap for it to prepare the file system and you'll have Jailbroken your iPod.
