    Okay, there is not yet a developer section for redsn0w on the forums yet, however, this is closely related. This is for anyone who wants to get more into knowing how to use libusb, and communicate with your 2g from usb. If you do not understand what i am saying, or think this post is stupid, please, do not attempt to flame this thread.

    Here is a very simplistic program, in c++, that will tell you the current status of your 2g. (ex: Normal, Recovery, DFU, Disconnected).

    == NOTICE ==
    i'll probably also be creating some things that will just be a little set of utilities for 2g, like an fsboot, 2gstatus, improved redj0hnny(currently working on this, fully rewritten version), etc.

    == NOTICE #2 ==
    I've included a makefile for those less familiar with the usage of g++, and a STATIC libusb, which will be linked right into the binary; this means libusb will NOT have to be installed on your computer for it to run.

    Again, no big updates here. Just for people who want to get in to this stuff, and OUT of VB, or whatever else they're using.

    I think this utility will be VERY useful to Chris Stroud with the development of his GUI, i mean i read that if he had something that could indicate the status of your ipod (DFU, normal), he said he could make things a LOT more automated for his redtool

    This is actually the reason he made it. I am very thankful. But he reallly needs to stop knocking VB. There is not a thing wrong with it. It is considered a starter language but when you really get into it, it can be very complex and very well done. Hence redTool.

    Does this require any other program to run or is it stand alone?
