What's that ? Sorry for being a dumb@$$. Just seen it on chronic dev team blog.
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
Look between your legs you etheir see a hole or a "dongle" now picture that dongle on your ipod this device plugs in your ipod sending the 8 bytes so that your ipod can be jailbroken (dongles come in all different shapes and sizes)
i dont think its supposed to look like a dick...
What? it made sense. he saw that the dev-team has been putting teh word "dongle" for teh 2g redsn0w over their blog and he doesn't know what it is.
to answer your question a dongle is:
thats why they come in some none dick shapes but most are take for instance a usb wifi dongle is that shape
Oh, sounds cool. Wonder how can I get one. Thanks for explaining that to me.
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
dongle sounds wrong hehehe
