    Hey guys, i had an idea. It might be good. It might be crap. But i thought i would post it any way.


    The senario: Your out with your friends, for some reason your ipod has been rebooted and you need to turn it back on. One of your friends has an iPod Touch 1G, 2G, iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G jailbroken. You pull out this.

    You plug it into one of their devices. They run the redsn0w patch through mobile terminal. You boot up.


    Possible?

    Yep it's very possible.

    You wouldn't be able to get away with using a standard cable though...it would need to be homemade.

    i suppose you could compile libusb for iphone and same with redj0hnny/irecovery. from there set up an app that would run the commands and send the files for you.
