    Just wanted to post this here before someone else does, so we can make sure the information is correct! We at the Chronic Dev Team have finally jailbroken the iPod touch 2G!

    Quick FAQ:

    When will this be released?
    We're not sure. No promises on any sort of release yet.

    Why?
    Because.

    Is this better than what the Dev Team has?
    No, this jailbreak is tethered, just like the dev team's. It is not a full, untethered jailbreak.

    Who made this?
    The Chronic Dev Team, http://chronic-dev.org/blog/

    Can you use Cydia??
    Yep! Check out the video.

    What does tethered mean?
    A tethered jailbreak is one where in order for the iPod to boot up, it needs to be connected to a computer with special software, or it won't turn on / will turn on unjailbroken (depending on the implementation)

    What progress did you make beyond the latest blog post?
    We were able to create a ramdisk that jailbreaks the iPod touch.

    Does this require 2.1.1?
    Yes, it currently does. But it will not be hard to make it require 2.2.

    I don't think you're real, normally chronic posts about this stuff!
    You'll just have to trust me on this one. I can assure you an official blog post about this will be coming quite soon.
    UPDATE: Chronic logged in to vouch for me, look at the bottom of the second page

    Where can I find a video of this?

    Why does your voice sound squeaky and high in the video?
    Because I'm 14.

    Is there any news here or are you just contributing to the spam.

    I'll believe in a 2G jailbreak ONLY when Kiks52 or King Chronic says so.

    Guys, I can assure you this is the truth. I work with Chronic. If you want, I can even make a post at http://chronic-dev.org/blog/, as I host the site. Or I can do anything else to prove it. Just tell me, and I'll do it.

    We already know you have a tethered jailbreak. Isn't this like, old news?

    Well, we didn't have the tethered jailbreak until just now

    We were able to run unsigned code, but that's not a jailbreak.
