Ipod touch 3G?
« on: August 15, 2010, 12:04:57 AM »
Hi all,
I have an iPod touch 3rd generation and I was just wondering when idroid implementation would happen for my device.  How come it is not listed in the devices for implementation list?  Are you guys just busy with other stuff or is it not possible on the iPod touch 3rd gen?

Everything is possible, what is currently blocking progress on the ipt3g is the fact that that we have no usable injection method by which to run code on the processor at an early enough stage to be usable. Same with the newer 3GS and the iPhone 4, they can be jailbroken in iOS, but not prior to or at the iBoot level which is required for iDroid to function.

Early iPod Touch 3G had the old 3G bootrom if I'm not mistaken. Someone started porting oib but stopped for some "legal reasons" (no idea what that means).

There is no way around it, apart from chainloading linux from iOS which I believe would be more trouble than its worth.

Hmm... i wonder how many times these questions will get answered...

iDroid Dev Team is investigating the use of the exploit for openiboot. But since it's a tethered exploit (without the Greenpois0n exploit), the best you can get is a tethered openiboot if ever it will work.
