    Hi Guys

    sorry for making 2 posts in this forum in two days but I think it's time to say it again.
    I know there were some threads in the past about this topic.
    But in the past nobody has paid many attention to this subject.

    I talk about the Nike+ SportKit.
    I think the hacker community is so big and they've already development so many great and difficult applications, that it's time now to help some people like sports.

    I personality do sport every day and i take my iPod Touch always with me. (NO it's not too heavy

    I think I speak in the name of many peoples whose has jailbroken their touch and like sports.

    WHY nobody has tried to making the Nike+ SportKit working on a jailbroken touch?!

    I don't understand why to buy the next generation of the iPod Touch if its released, ONLY to get the SportKit work.
    Because that I hope some developers pay attention now on developing a little app to get the Nike SportKit working.

    I'm sorry if there is a solution for my problem. I've search many days, many forums and read many things but NOWHERE was a way to bring two of the best things in my life together.

    Please, please, pleaselet there be a developer or a hacker who develope something to get it work.

    I hope and I think I'm not alone

    as it has been pointed-out in some of the system files it mentions Nike already.

    one could assume that they are releasing a new version of Nike+ in the near future -- I suspect full bluetoothiness

    afaik, the sportkit you have uses a serial connector throught the dock plug, and the devs are just scratching the surface of what can be done with serial conversation on the device. its limited because developing without full disclosure of the APi by Apple, means you are taking shots in the dark.

    it will require some cooperation with Apple before this is fully exploitable, albeit with the next version of Nike+.

    Then theres the lil nike pod itself, which may have encoded data coming from it. which may require knowledge of Nike's protocols

    That sounds logical.
    And does it means i have to buy the nex generation of the iPod Touch with bluetooth to get the new nike kit working?!

    yes, bluetooth is only supported on the iphone, however
    it's speculation at this point, but the nike base station may be extending the bluetooth through a dongle, which could be used on iphone or ipod

    or try put your ipod in your shoe..;P
