    The iPhone Dev-Team's various web pages have seen a flurry of updates in the last few hours in what appear to be final hints of a forthcoming iPod touch 2G jailbreak.

    The image hosted on the mysterious "redsn0w" webpage was updated to add what looked to many observers like some sort of hash or key (zoomed in above), and confirmation has come from Dev-Team member MuscleNerd posting on our forums:

    When asked in the same 2000-post long thread how soon we can expect a usable payload, he replied

    If that's not enough confirmation, the Dev-Team's blog has been updated with a post that points even more strongly towards imminent news about the 2G touch. Describing their latest exploit, they say "...it certainly isn’t iPhone 3G related (right now). There is one other device... It fits in your pocket.."

    If there is one thing that is certain, it is that the next few days are going to be an exciting time for the iPod touch community.

    from the comments at iphone-dev:

    some user: That's great guys ! I hope it's Touch 2G related, because this one is waiting for jailbreak

    musclenerd: it is


    and another quote from musclenerd: It's an "escrow" hash of decrypted iBoot for ipt2g (length=0x29000). Not otherwise obtainable except via an exploit (afaict).
