    I just had a really good idea (which is a first for me).

    Would there be a way to put all of the boot files from an ubuntu live cd onto the root folder of a Jailbroken iPod touch, to make a sort of iPod Live USB?

    I think that would be pretty freakin' awesome...

    I'll have to try it on my old 1G touch...

    I'll post pictures when I'm done.

    Nope, because you cant make you iPod a bootable drive.

    It is not possible because the iPod Touch does not appear to the computer as a normal disk drive at boot time. Previous iPods did, and it was possible to boot linux from them.
