I will be installing this tomorrow when I get home... as long as someone finds out a way to install it on Windows that is. =D

Download: [redsn0w.com]

Here is the sketchy installation guide that is included in the README:

Readme said:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Basic instructions
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: these are the bare bones instructions. Please don't come to us
looking for more detailed instructions.

Preparation
1) Copy the FirmwareBundles and CustomPackages directories into
your PwnageTool.app/Contents/Resources directory
2) Create a custom 2.2.1 ipsw with PwnageTool in Advanced mode. Don't
enable custom boot logos.
3) From your custom 2.2.1 ipsw, extract these (patched) files:
iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu (name it iBSS221pwn.dfu)
iBoot.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 (name it iBoot221pwn.img3)
4) From the official 2.1.1 ipsw, extract this (unpatched) file:
iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu (name it iBSS211.dfu)

Installing the jailbroken custom ipsw
5) Put your ipt2g into DFU mode using keypresses. Don't have iTunes running!
6) Start rslite. Send the official iBSS from 2.1.1: !iBSS211.dfu
7) Start rslite again. Send the redsn0w-lite patch: #pwn211ibss.txt
8) Send the patched iBSS from 2.2.1: !iBSS221pwn.dfu
9) Use iTunes to do a full restore using your custom 2.2.1 ipsw

Tethered boot
After the install, your ipt2g will not be bootable without assistance
from a tethered computer. The method in this README.txt requires you
to go into DFU mode, but you should be able to find (or work out on
your own) other more convenient ways.
10) Repeat steps 5-8
11) Send the patched iBoot from 2.2.1: !iBoot221pwn.img3

Your homescreen should soon show up. You can then start iTunes.

I'd wait a little bit before trying this out.
This is just a tethered JB, it's not a beta or anything. :p Perfectly fine to use as long as you are willing to have to connect your iPod to a PC every time you reboot it.

EDIT: Once I have JB my own iPod, I will be writing an installation guide for those that are interested.

Help please. I tried restoring with the patched ipsw through itunes but i got an error 1603. Now the ipod touch refuses to boot and only DFU mode works. What do i do?

Get back into DFU Mode and restore. That's what I would do until I could get help on a ipod specific community

Oh thank god. I managed to get back to 2.2.0. I presume that I will have to do all the steps over again?

Additional Comment:
Damn it. Everytime I try to flash the patched firmware I get an error code from iTunes.

Success! DO NOT kill any processes associated with iTunes when restoring the firmware. This will prevent it from working.

I have Installous, mxTube, Winterboard, and backgrounder so far.
