Damon Vanasse not sure if you can do it without restoring. If you want to go that route, try these steps:

"Connect Your Device

Turn the device completely off. Slide to Power Off.

Hold The Power/Sleep and Home buttons.

Hold both until you hear the "recognize sound" from your computer.

Release the Power/Sleep Button but continue to hold the home button.

Your computer should find your device in DFU mode.

The screen on your device should be completely black

Open iTunes

Open your Device's Tab

Follow the Remainder of the Restore Process.

Once Restored, You may restore to a previous backup." more about that on here. or this one

Disconnect the USB cable from the iPod touch.

Power off the device

Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting USB cable

Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.

itunes should see it as a device in recovery mode if not, try it again

Hope this helps, good luck.

I wanted to mention that if your Ipod is a MC modle then it's best to use greenpoison (http://greenpois0n.com/ ) to jailbreak it. I think redsn0w and sn0wbreeze won't work with MC models.

If you can still boot up device then go to SETTINGS--->GENERAL--->ABOUT to see if it is. Mine is MC086LL
