    So... FAKE?

    Lets keep waiting for iPhone Dev. It is a important process to get GID keys, through software or hardware.

    thats a fake 2g jailbreak you can see in the screenshot its firmware 2.1 for the 1st gen ipod touch, the 2g firmware is 2.1.1 and as of right now there is NO jailbreak quickpwn will NOT work on the 2g iPod touch.

    quickpwn takes advantage of a hardware exploit thats in the 1st gen ipod which was addressed in the 2g ipod so quickpwn will definately not work

    Well, if we take a minute to look at the comments, they were almost all made about a week ago, and all positive. Near the end there are a few people questioning.

    Logic would dictate that if 50+ people had really successfully jailbroken their ipod touch 2g, one of them would have posted again themselves on how to do it. Either that or post a 'show-off' video of their jailbroken touch.

    For this to be true, the guy would have to have some NDA or something. Since he is offering the files for download, that is unlikely.

    Also, if it were that easy to do, one of the dev teams would have downloaded the files, dissected them, and found the exploit. In which case, they would have released their own "legit" version.

    All the videos out so far are red herrings to rickroll you, get you to install infected files on your computer, or to pi$$ you off.

    That's my take anyways.

    What about the pictures in the descritption

    Check the date on the 3rd picture and compare to the ipod's clock.

    I can't see the volume buttons in the picture, but maybe it's my monitor.

    There have already been a few fakes using the ipod 1G or someone with a dev pack using pictures or creating lookalike programs.

    There have also been a few bait and switch videos where they show you the ipod touch 2g and everything and then conveniently frame their video so that one can't see the volume buttons. (i.e. swapped in a 1g)

    The mac file on this guy's video is an .exe file.

    If you go to the people that have praised this video, many have joined in the last month, or within a week of the video. Also, none of them have answered posts on their channels for help or advice as to how they did it.

    If you go to the chronicdev blog, there are a bunch of people who have followed the exact instructions and downloaded the files. None have succeeded. In fact, one user found that if you rename the extension to one of the files, it is actually the draw program or something.

    If it were real, there would be more evidence than here-say.

    Damn some people really dont have a life.
    They do everything to get attention.
    Well thanks for the info man, i really appreciated it.
    I always thought there was something weird in that video and the comments too.
    We will just have to wait after chronic or iphone dev team afterall since they finished jailbreaking the iphone 3g, they will be working on the ipod touch 2g...i hope
    Anyways thanks again

    why are people still buying into this? its not real it uses the 1st generation jailbreak method which does not work on 2nd gen iPods when are people going to learn they shouldn't still be questioning the authenticity, if it was a proper jailbreak you should of seen the person doin it bu no its just text and screenshot of quickpwn.

    as for screenshots n the description..... they could easily be pics from a 1st gen iPod and synced via iTunes to 2nd gen iPod and then they take pics wih the pics from photos

    Come on people stop being so gullible. This would be all over the net if it was legit. People are just looking for ways to hit high views on youtube and make up stupid rumors.

    Dude you've got balls... I would be too scared to brick my 2g

    wait for chronic to release jailbreak for iPod Touch 2G!

    He is still looking for some xploit to run non-signed applications over the OS.

    Apple does not permit you to install anything on the 2nd gen without their say so.

    These install devices are placed on your touch when you jailbreak. That is the only way to place them in the system. Hence the word "jailbreak" Apple has your device locked up.

    With the second generation, Apple for lack of a better description, "plugged" the whole for the JB process. They changed the hardware. A new exploit needs to be found.
