    Yep. You heard right. The two biggest names in the iPhone/iPod touch hacking community are battling it out for the big prize. The first to jailbreak the iPod touch (2nd Generation). Now, there is much speculation surrounding this story. Many people have been complaining that neither the iPhone Dev Team, nor the Chronic Dev Team have made any statements as to the progress of the iPod touch in about 3 weeks. Well, this is why: the iPhone Dev Team is very secretive of such information due to the fact that Apple could patch the exploit, thus ruining any chance of a jailbreak. This is the exact same scenario that happened with Project “Jerry SIM”, Zibri stole the exploit, thus ruining it for the rest of us. Apple patched the exploit, and the team had to start from square one.

    The most efficient way to hack an iPhone or iPod touch is through Pwnage, a process in which the hardware is manipulated to allow the skipping of code checks. Well, this is all fine and dandy, but the iPod touch (2nd Generation) has a different ARM processor. It now uses an Infineon chip set, thus changing the ram disk keys and such.

    Well, I think I have said enough about the actual process. I mentioned a race right? Well, it’s true. The Chronic Dev Team has acquired system dump files, thus allowing them to look for an exploit. Not much can be said to the public about the iPhone Dev Team’s progress, but let me just say that I think that it is very likely that we will all have jailbroken iPod touch (2nd Generations) by New Years Day. So stay tuned, and I really do hope that I am making an accurate assumption. More information as it comes in…

    no, it is just a different processor. old devices used s5l8900x, and 2g ipod touch uses s5l8720x. Infineon is actually the people that make the iPhone baseband chips. interesting write up though, it is interesting to see how other people view this.

    I really do not care which one gets it first; I only care that it is quick, and stable.

    so... chronic, whats your estimated time frame for the jailbreak, do you have one or is it too soon to tell, i mean just a ballpark would be nice, personally im rooting for you, i'd like to see someone other than the dev team get the spotlight
