iPod Touch Root Access Achieved The same buffer overrun exploit using a carefully crafted TIFF that led to the 1.1.1 jailbreak, occurs on the iPod Touch. Proof that they are extremely similar, and that the 1.1.1 update to the iPhone, in effect, made it more similar to the iPod Touch. A jailbroken iPod Touch is only some time away. And the sweet thing is that there is no activation/phone issues that can plage the iPod Touch in the event of an upgrade. This will turn out to be not unlike the PSP scenario -- and is quite fitting considering the Tiff overrun method was the method used to jailbreak the PSP -- where the iPod Touch community will be running around on outdated firmware. Two implications become clear here, both benefitting the user: 1. Apple is forced to provide a greater-than-normal incentive to update. 2. 3rd Party developers create a feature rich version of the firmware, and people simply start ignoring Apple's own updates. The PSP community has been doing a mix of both. Look up Dark_Alex for some insight to have incredible a development "fork" can crop up between the official operating system and that modified by 3rd parties.
