Are you the proud owner of a second generation iPod Touch that’s been a feeling a bit… left out as of late? Thanks to some recent developments on the part of the industrious iPhone Dev team, you’ll soon be able to jailbreak your device, bringing its hacked-ness up to par with the rest of Apple Touch screen devices. The organization has been alluding to an impending jailbreak for quite some time, but just yesterday released some screen shots giving us a bit more insight into their process. Apparently, the actual jailbreaking is still “far too manual” for most consumers, but the fine folks are promising a streamlined GUI-ed application in the very near future. While refusing to give any specific timeline, the dev team has assured us that they are “putting a lot of energy into it”, so we’re guessing that the ETA won’t drag too far into the distant future.

Thanks, Neil!
