    so when the jailbreak is finaly done is it gonna be one of those things that you havta have extensive knowlege of hacking and programming or is it gonna be somethig anyone can do? And I'm a fairly smart guy who dosnt know much about hacking at all so do u think people like me will be able to do it?

    It all depends. Apple locked this thing down pretty tight. If the tiff image exploit works out, then the first step (visiting the web page) will be easy, but that will only set up the Touch for the rest of the process which may be very difficult. All I can say now is odds are you (hopefully) won't have to open the casing at all. That is, the hack probably won't involve hardware manipulation (Other than the possible "unplug the sync cable at x time" or "push this button then" kind of stuff).

    We can only wait to see. If you wait long enough, someone will probably make a GUI for it which can be run right from a PC/Mac

    and btw is the tiff exploit just opening a page and loading an image
    How does that do what it has to do to the touch programming.

    Basically the hope is the the tiff exploit can be used towards a buffer overflow. With a buffer overflow we could write to the memory being executed. That way, we could tell it what to do. By we, I mean the people working on this Jailbreak thing
