    Is it possible yet? Or are we still waiting for the Jailbreak community to throw something together? :confused:

    I'm referring to the new ones that were released on Sept. 9- the iPod Touch 2nd Generation.

    Currently I don't think it is possible, as the new touch uses different hardware (slightly different, though). It may be a few days or weeks before it's jailbroken. Or I may be wrong, and there's a solution already. But considering not many people have recieved their 2nd gen iPod touch, it's unlikely.

    the new ipods are not jailbreakable YET! because they have changed the hardware inside that prevents the old way firmware was hacked via quickpwn, winpwn, pwnagetool and the likes.

    hang tight and just keep an eye out

    Ah, okay. So basically we're waiting for the community to shell out a new hack for the 2nd Generation iPod Touches. :)

    The device has a lot of potential- I hope to see a good "pwned" firmware available soon!

    There isn't really any such thing as a "good" or "bad" pwned firmware. It's just a matter of adapting the Pwnage process to the subtle differences between the new iPod touch and the old one / iPhones.
