    Within the next few days, the iPhone Dev-Team (those responsible for unlocking and jailbreaking the iPhones) will release redsn0w.

    Now all 2nd Gen (2G) iPod Touch users can jailbreak their iPods!

    www.redsn0w.com shows a image on their homepage with the hash needed to crack the iPod Touch 2G, and it's being reported on iPod Touch Fans that while Chronic is the one who found the hash, the iPhone Dev Team spent a few hours and have a jailbreak app comming in "a few days".

    Cool, good news for those who want to, eh?

    I'm unsure if I really want to though. I need to really do some research first. =P I have 2.2 so..definitely, research.

    Dupe thread, but this one has more info on it so I'll post this here. This was posted on the dev team's Twitter not too long ago:

    If it's a dupe thread, please let me know where else it's posted...

    The release is set for 'MAYBE' Sunday, the 18th. If you go to www.redsn0w.com you can see the hash for the 2G jailbreak...

    Note, this is for the Second Generation iPod Touch's... the ones with the internal speakers, and volume buttons on the side.

    UPDATE:

    It will jailbreak 2.1.1, and 2.2 iPods. No need to downgrade, or modify your iPod in any way.

    Please check www.redsn0w.com and the iPhone Dev Team's blog for more details!

    tbh, I am wondering about this. Only a month ago they said they weren't even going near the 2G unlock for a couple of reasons, such as 3G unlock and them not having many members with 2G Touch's. 2 Weeks ago they officially released Yellowsn0w, so I am not sure how much this has been tested.

    If I had a 2G, I wouldn't use it immediately. Probably wait a little bit. I feel sorry for Chronic Dev team. They have been working at a 2G for a while, and then the iPDT shows them up.
