    what?

    i guess you could put it on the 2g but you would have to run redsn0w each time.

    Will not happen for the same reason you can not use custom boot logos on a 2G touch. Basicly they need a bootloader exploit similar to the one used on the other ipod & iPhones. This is what the dev team also needs for an untethered JB. Until this happens no Linux.

    Hoppfully they hold out until the next iPhone is released.

    Well actually, you can have custom boot logos on a 2g iPod Touch...

    I do realize that you made this post before gojohnnyboi released this, but I replied to your post so that others would realize that you can have custom boot logos on your iPod Touch 2G.

    According to Muscle Nerds twitter the dev team have found an exploit to make an untethered version of redsn0w but they can't release it because of implications to the iPhone.

    So when the new iPhone comes out (no idea when) the exploit should be released.
