    Nike+ Remote trick:
    If you have a Nike+ Amp or any Nike+ remote sync'd to your iPod Touch 2g, go to the Nike+ iPod app. From there, hold down the home button to force quit the program. You will still be able to use the Nike+ Amp/Nike+ Remote, but it's a bit limited. You cannot play/pause songs, and the left side button does nothing. You can change the volume and switch songs/fast forward and fast rewind. Holding down the play/pause button will stop the current playing song (if any), but will also dim the backlight, then completely turn off your screen, without actually locking your iPod.

    BossPrefs turns on bluetooth:
    By doing the Nike+ iPod crash trick I explained above and going to BossPrefs, you will see that Bluetooth is ON. Switching it to OFF will turn off access to your Nike+ Amp/Nike+ remote. You will need to recrash Nike+ iTunes in order to get the remote to work again. A bit glitchy actually.

    SweetTooth on iPod Touch 2G:
    Doesn't work it seems. It does however show a small bluetooth icon next to the battery, like you'd see on the iPhone.

    Sidenotes:
    The second and third discoveries are quite glitchy. The first one will work fine if you do not attempt the second and third discoveries, however if you do attempt them and your Nike+ remote or anything stops working, reboot your device.

    You realize this is FOR the 2g, right...?
    Hint: check the sub-forum redsn0w. The jailbreak's released.

    A new/hacked driver will probably have to be made for true bluetooth to work
