    no, i don't think you're cool because you know big developer words describing the situation with the 2nd gen jailbreak not out yet. give me a "Graphical User" explanation as to why the 2nd gen ipod touch cannot be jailbroken. When you talk about exploit, what do you mean? Explain it as if i am someone who doesn't even know what an ipod touch is. Thank you.

    Because the 2nd gen was designed differently. It is a physical difference, a hardware difference.

    Exploit is basically using an opening in the ipod's hardware/software that will let us put things in it. When we put things in it we can jailbreak it.

    Hope that was simple enough for ya

    Ok. Think of this way...

    1st Gen

    You're a racer. You just bought a brand new car and you want to make it go faster. You hire a mechanic to tweak your car. Because the car is gas-powered, it is very easy for the mechanic.

    2nd Gen

    You just bought another car, and you want to make it go faster. You hire a mechanic to tweak your new car. This car is electric-powered. The mechanic is having a hard time figuring out how to tweak it.

    not all roms are legal which is why apple don't allow them to be put on the iPod
