    sorry... i had to re-read that post a few times... for some reason I thought you were posting that it was possible and you were kinda late to the idea. It basically just plugs into the dock connector and serves the purpose of the computer in the redsn0w boot process.

    Its an add on that you plug in to the dock. In this case, its used to patch the redsn0w jailbreak so that you are able to re-jailbreak when you turn your on your touch incase youre away from a computer. There are other dongles too though, there is a gps dongle, there are talks of a camera dongle, etc

    You guys are slightly misusing "dongle". The dongle that the Dev Team is working on is a software dongle. A plain old dongle is any periphery that plugs into the iPod, or other devices, such as a camera dongle, or a mic dongle, as stated by the others before me : P
