    I found something out on WinPwn, please don't flame me if this is already known. You can change the boot\restore logos on any firmware and without "Pwning" and also without using a custom firmware. I am currently on 1.1.3 and decided to change the boot logo. So I opened WinPwn and clicked the "Boot Logo" button, changed them as usual and then it copied over the boot logos to the NVram or something then it worked! I have also tried this on 1.1.1 and 1.1.2, also works for me. Hope this helps...

    Yah that's awsome. Is pwning an iPod the same as Jailbreaking it? I don't know what the difference is besides being able to make custom firmware...

    Pwning your iPod is not the same a jailbreaking. WinPwn loads a custom bootloader to your ipod so you can load custom firmware onto it. On the custom firmware you have any app you want. EG: Installer, OpenSSH, BSD Subsystem, etc

    Thanks for the tip, but this is known information. Afarnesi, it must be pwned because a normal jailbreaking method does not support custom boot & recovery logos.
