    All we have at the moment is a bootloader that lets you boot into a linux command line environment, you can't really do much with it yet. Definitely not a full installation.

    THANK GOD a new user that can read!!!! lmao

    Well youd be surprised at how many people are THAT retarded haha. I figure if the fact that the 2g isnt JB'ed comes up in every thread maybe ppl will stop asking

    Thank you so much for being intelligent unlike so many others

    it's not a full version. It's called iPodlinux and it's pretty bad actually. It's just like a jailbreak only harder to customize and less support.
