    Nope, the dev team hasn't released a pwnagetool for the ipod touch 2g, I have no idea why thought. You will have to upgrade and then run redsn0w to jailbreak.

    You really don't know why? If you looked through the older posts on this forum, and a few others, dating back to when the Untethered jailbreak for the iPod Touch 2G was first released you might have a better understanding.

    But here's the reason in any case. Just before it came out, there was a leak of the Patch by a company known as NitroKey, who started selling the Untethered patch. It was shortly afterwards that the Dev Team released it, seeing how there was no point to not release it anymore.

    Bottom line, they aren't releasing a PwnageTool/XPwn with the iPod Touch 2G Firmware Bundle patches, because they want to keep the jailbreak controlled for as long as possible. In other words, they don't want people getting ahold of their software and selling it again and take credit for their hard work.

    I heard of NitroKey, they had to ruin it for everyone.

    Depending on the number of people desperate enough that didn't know how to properly search, possibly a fair amount. And also the fact that 24kPwn, the untethered patch came out a few short hours after NitroKey released the software to their site, probably a lot more people realized that they could get it for free.

    LogoMe is what you're looking for. It is not compatible with 3.0 though. Just wait for an update.

    @Everyone else who posted, There is a rule against mentioning commercial jailbreak software.
