    What is the difference between a PWN, and a Jailbreak, I have seen quickpwn, I just dont understand what the difference between JB'ing/redsn0w/quickpwn is, if somone could explain what they are in relation to one another that would be awesome!

    Thanks

    QuickPWN is a tool that you use to jailbreak. So is redsn0w.

    Redsn0w is just a codename for the iPod touch 2G jailbreak.

    Pwning is just the name of the newer exploit because there used to be a different exploit back in the days of Firmware 1.1.1/1.1.2.

    QuickPwn is a tool that does that exploit automatically for you.

    No. It allows you to jailbreak the 2.2 firmware, but only on a 1G.

    Nobody knows when the 2G iPod Touch will be jailbroken; please be patient.
