    You can't jailbreak the second generation iPod touch yet.

    The firmware itself is jailbreakable, just not on the 2nd gen ipod touch.

    The jailbreak is not about firmware... is about Hardware

    well i knew they had issues with the software and that at the moment their best bet was hardware but they knew that would be too difficult for people so they kept trying software. So is this just a dead end in a maze with no end? or is there some way to unlock it without hardware issues?

    not currently, its because it uses a different processor i beleive than the others, but in time im confident the dev team will crack it. They do amazing work.

    Really stupid question

    I am new to iPod touch....

    Why would one want to jailbreak? What sorts of applications would one want to load and why?

    Sorry so lame....

    Great things like being able to play NES or gameboy advance/color games.

    Mxtube, which lets you download youtube vides directly to your ipod so you dont need wifi all the time.

    You can have themes so you can change the look.

    The list goes on and on

    It's actually bc they fixed the bug in the usb connection that allowed the jailbreak on the first gen.

    Not the proc.


    They'll figure something out soon I'm sure.

    Nope, not true jailbreak. Chronic dev team would be the one to post something like this. This is just some person knowing people are looking for a 2gen ipod jailbreak methods and allows easy access for viruses to be downloaded.

    You can't unlock an iPod touch, because it isn't locked in the first place. You can jailbreak it but not unlock it because it has no baseband

    Ipod Touch 2nd Gen Jailbreak

    You know, I wouldn't be surprised if it's not until next year before there's a jailbreak for the 2nd gen ipod touch. Especially at the rate that the iphone dev team is moving, who knows when that'll happen.

    I just got the iPod Touch 2G with the 2.2 software. I am pretty sure that jailbreaking it voids the warranty with apple but what are the cons of jailbreaking it. There are tons of other apps that you can download and change backgrounds,but i am not sure if it is worth it when they get the hack. Love to know what you think. Thanks

    considering undoing a jailbreak is as easy as clicking a single button...hell yea its worth it.

    I love playing pokemon during my study halls.
