After working long and hard on Apple’s second generation iPod Touch, the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team released a little tidbit of information that is sure to please all you 2G Touch owners out there. It looks as though the Dev Team has identified a fatal flaw in the bootrom that allows the device to be pwned for life. Once jailbroken, always jailbroken — regardless of what firmware updates Apple throws your way. The firmware patch that provides this untethered jailbreak has been released to the masses but it has not yet been bundled into QuickPwn or any other Pwnage Tool. Early adopters, hit the read link for all the juicy details. Those of you who aren’t quite so Bold, sit tight for the impending QuickPwn/Pwnage Tool integration.
