    I was searching around my iPods filesystem after just jailbreaking it. I have found the boot, deepsleep and init files for the 3rd gen ipod touch bluetooth chip. I have also found the firmware driver for a brand new chip called BCM4329 which among other things is an 802.11n wifi chip.

    BCM4329

    I hope this is good news for people wanting faster wifi.

    That's pretty interesting news.

    Along these lines does anyone here know how to tear apart the 3.0 ipsw? I would like to get to the actual firmware and have a look at it with a hex editor. I was hoping dev-team's wiki would have some information and google turned up a few methods with older crypt keys that are no good for 3.0 nor are the key locations.
