Update: Greenpois0n appears to make the iPod Touch 2nd-generation randomly reboot from time to time. If you have a 2nd-gen iPod Touch (or an "3rd-gen" iPod Touch with 8 GB of storage), I wouldn't recommend trying to jailbreak iOS 4.1. Stick to the original iOS 4.0.

Greenpois0n didn't work on my iPod Touch 2G (MC Model) on iOS 4.1 at first, but it worked after I tried using it on a different computer.

Anyways, you might have some problems putting your device in DFU Mode (which is required for greenpois0n to work), but it's not a terribly complicated process.
