Here is the step by step guide on jailbreaking iPod Touch 2G on iOS 4.0.2 using Redns0w Version 0.9.5b5-5.

  1. The first step is to download Redsn0w 0.9.5b5-5 and save it on your desktop [or wherever you prefer].
  2. Start Redns0w.
  3. Once Redsn0w starts, click browse and and select the original iOS 4 Firmware IPSW file.
  4. Now wait for Redsn0w to process the firmware file and select next.
  5. On this screen, check mark “Install Cydia” and press next.
  6. Now power off your iPod Touch 2G and connect it with your computer. Please only press next once you are 100 % sure that your phone is properly powered off and plugged to the computer.
  7. Now follow the onscreen instruction to complete your jailbreak. This process will take some time so do not interrupt installation or disconnect your device.
  8. The device will reboot automatically once Redsn0w finishes the process.

And there you go! You now have your iPod 2G jailbroken on iOS 4.0.2 using Redsn0w.
