There are multiple options available if you want to jailbreak ipod touch depending upon the model and ios version. The first option is evasi0n 1.5 untethered jailbreak which is useful if your iPod touch 4g or 5g have iOS 6.1.2 or previous versions i.e. 6.0, 6.1.1, 6.0.1 etc. The second option is use of redsn0w 0.9.15b3 which will come into picture if your iPod touch 4g has ios 6.1.3, remember there is no jailbreak available for iPod Touch 5g if it is having ios 6.1.3. The available 6.1.3 jailbreak is tethered that means you shall always need to use a computer if your device reboots due to any reason otherwise due to tethered jailbreak Cydia and Safari will not work and crash if you start these programs with tethered booting.

The third option for ipod touch jailbreaking is sn0wbreeze latest version again this is only compatible with ipod touch 4g on iOS 6.1.3 and is a tethered solution as mentioned above.

Download redsn0w  by clicking here, extract and run the program as administrator.

Download iOS 6.0 firmware file for ipod touch 4g from iOS download page, this is ipsw file which we will use for jailbreaking iPod Touch.

Connect the ipod touch 4g to computer using the original USB cable, on redsn0w main window go to Extras => Select IPSW => Now browse and select the ipsw file which you downloaded in previous step.

There will be no activity when you will select 6.0 ipsw, now go back to main redsn0w menu and click Jailbreak => Click Continue  => Select Install Cydia => Put your iphone 4 in DFU mode when it will be asked and let the jailbreak process complete. Now your iPod Touch is jailbroken on 6.1.3, but still it requires tethered boot so that you can be able to use Safari and Cydia otherwise these two apps will not work.
