    I figured I would start THE thread on hacking version 2.1 for the touch. As soon as anyone has any info, update it here in this thread. We'll keep track of the stats and what Apple has done differently in this OS as far as hacking the firmware is concerned.

    If anyone has any links regarding news, PM me and I will put it in this first post. I tried doing searches but I guess it's just too early. Maybe I will have better luck tomorrow.

    UPDATE 1 (9:00PM) - I have read from several sources that the vers. 2.1 (beta) has been hacked already. They (the DEV team) have said the Hack is now at the hardware level and pretty much everything is left to be changed. They will be relying on the iBoot method to hack the ipod. This is the fastest most powerful way to hack the Touch as of now. We should be seeing a hacked 2.1 here in less than 2 days.

    UPDATE 2 (9:39PM) - There have been problems reported from people upgrading from their Jailbroken touch to 2.1. It is suggested that you do a restore of your ipod to it's current version and then do the upgrade. It's been reported on several occasions that the iPod gets stuck on the boot logo and you will have to do a force restore again. Just a heads up for those upgrading from a Jailbroken Touch.

    UPDATE 3 (7:16AM, 9/10/08) - For those of you wondering if you would be able to downgrade from 2.1 to 2.0.1, it is possible. There is no news on the front of Jailbreaking but if you would like to try out 2.1 then you can do so safely. All you need to do is put your iPod in DFU mode and do a selective restore via iTunes.

    UPDATE 4 (9:00AM 9/10/08) - These are the instructions posted by Nudded on the iPodTouchForums for downgrading your iPod with iTunes 8.

    This has been approved by many members to work.

    UPDATE 5 (10:30AM 9/10/08) - It will be a while before the 2nd Gen Touch gets Jailbroken, it uses a new Processor as well as a new code scheme. Here are the details -

    UPDATE 6 (5:15PM 9/10/08) - Well it looks like someone with a bright idea just might be getting us that much closer to a quicker Jailbreak. Here is the idea that Laser suggested -

    After having his idea shot down by many members, he was able to gain access into the root of his touch. He is only able to look at files now, he can't edit anything. But, we are that much closer!

    Screenshots will be coming up in the next few hours.

    Screenshots are up!


    UPDATE 7 (3.10PM 9/1/08) - Well we have an update from the DEV Team and they are still at work. Here is a quote from their latest blog entry;

    So we are chugging along!


    UPDATE 8 (11:34PM 9/11/08) - Ladies and Gentlemen, we now have a Jailbreak! This came up a few hours ago and after reading most all of the pages, you can see that it indeed does work!

    :mad:;) Comments like that won't get anybody anywhere. I was hoping for more constructive comments, not ones regarding the ability of this thread to thrive. I suggest you add some good info or just plain delete your post. This is where the other threads go way off topic and become a mess. I want to keep this thread to questions/answers/suggestions regarding Jailbreaking the new firmware. :cool:

    It'll be interesting to see how long it takes for this to get hacked. I'll say... 2 days?

    I have a noob question for you pros,

    I currently have jailbroke 2.0.2, and I am wondering what would happen if I did a update to the new 2.1? The update is available through my iTunes. It already asked me if I wanted to update, but I clicked no until I get some answers here. Would it "unjailbrake" my ipod, or just simply update the firmware and the rest stays the same. (like my apps/music/video/pictures/cydia/installer) I dont really care if I lose my music or movies as I have them on my hard drive anyways.. And I can always back up my apps.. Just wondering if this will "unjailbreak" it.
    Thanks in advance and my apologies for such a n00b question.

    I believe that was essentially answered in UPDATE 3. You will lose all your data. It is recommended that if you are updating from a Jailbroken Touch, that you restore it to 2.1 versus upgrading it to 2.1. It will completely delete everything on your iPod. So deleting the whole thing would "unjailbreak" it.
