Dev-Team demos beta version of PwnageTool on iPod touch 4G

The folks responsible for the development of iOS jailbreaking software PwnageTool — the dev-team — have posted a quick one-minute video demoing their latest iteration of the tool. Using the SHAtter exploit discovered by pod2g several weeks ago, the dev-team has managed to jailbreak one of the new fourth generation iPod touch devices. The dev-team writes:

Although PwnageTool was a useful first test of a full iPod 4G jailbreak via SHAtter, it’s really overkill compared to the faster tools being developed. Its main use in PwnageTool will be for those with iPhone4’s, to allow updates while preserving the baseband and ultrasn0w carrier unlock. In any event, this is another exciting time for iPhone and iPod touch users…the cat and mouse game continues!

If you’re interested in seeing what everyones favorite iOS tinkerers have been up to hit the break, we’ve got the video waiting for you.
