    Alright, first off, I didn't want to cause any unnecessary alarm by titling the topic "2G Jailbreak Youtube video," just in case it's a misunderstanding of the video.

    Anyhow, today I saw a video called "venom tutorial !!!!" on Youtube. The video shows a program (called "Venom" "Venom X") supposedly jailbreaking a 2G touch. The video shows the author using the program to create a custom firmware (it includes a part where he checks a box ominously labeled "ipod touch 2g jailbreak") for the touch, and then using iTunes to restore the touch with the modified firmware containing the jailbreak. He then pans the camera down to an iPod touch turning on with a custom firmware with a Venom boot screen and Cydia and Terminal and all that jazz. Supposedly it's the same iPod. To his credibility, it does have the charging icon on the battery.

    This is obviously great if it's true, but there's a lot of shakiness on it's credibility. Firstly, how do we know it's a 2G? The serial number on the restored iPod is 9E8372F614N, but does that mean anything? Even if iPod 9E8372F614N is a 2G, how do we know that he doesn't just restore the 2G and pan down to show a 1G that's charging? This would be much more credible if he would have just showed the iPod with Cydia in the light.

    Anyway, am I missing something painfully obvious? Is this news? Thoughts?
    I apologize in advance if this is fake or old news or considered spam.

    EDIT: I didn't provide the Youtube link because I know that offsite links aren't allowed. If I was too specific in naming the video as well, just notify me or edit it out of my post. Thank you, and sorry if I misunderstood any rules.

    EDIT 2: Link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35p9HZq0Xd8
    Sorry, I wasn't aware youtube links were allowed

    Ah I thought so, but I wasn't positive. First post updated.
    I'm not sure on the video though, I'm calling shenanigans.

    i think it looks pretty sketchy
    there's obviously some elapsed time periods where we don't
    actually see the program working
    in fact, we never see the program working
    we just see 2 windows

    The Venom bootloader is just a wallpaper and he presses the home button to get to the Springboard.
