Did the dev team consider this at all when giving the go-ahead to update to 2.2.1?

    Ok so I'm sure that everyone has watched musclenerd's new video about 2.2.1. He said that all iPod touch 2G users have the go-ahead to update, but did the dev team consider that maybe apple knows about the exploit to reach an untethered jailbreak (if there is one) and patched it with the update? Is this possible? If so then I think this is a very likely possibility. Apple knows their machine batter than anyone so if they know about a possible exploit then they have every reason to patch it.

    It is not possible to patch the currently-used exploit.

    the exploit is found in levels before the bootloader, so the firmware does not affect the jailbreak, all thats needed is an updated quickpwn/ pwnage tool

    no, the dev team is looking for a different exploit to allow an untethered jailbreak. The current exploit only allows a tethered jailbreak.

    the level that the dev team and chronic dev are working on are lower than the firmware, apples updates arent able to touch this level, its like the first gen touch patch except there is now another layer on top preventing it from an untethered jailbreak .

    If you use the method from http://dentafrice.pastebin.com/m77d7abcc you could also see for yourself the exploit still exists. I updated my ipt2g to 2.2.1 and the exploit still worked. Their not looking for another exploit to run un-signed code, just an exploit to make the payload run untethered.

    It's not a jailbreak, it's just a way of running unsigned code at the bootloader level.

    Not really. The exploit is found in the bootloader level, but it's been signed by Apple, which means we can use it whenever we want. They already patched in in the firmware (in 2.2), but since they signed it, we can still use it in later versions via DFU.
