iPod Touch 2G Not Jailbroken YET…

September 11, 2008

From iPod Touched

For now, no current jailbreaking tool that is out can jailbreak the new iPod Touch 2G. This is due to a new processor and new encryption keys. Below was taken from IPTF

Unfortunately, it looks like the current form of Pwnage won’t work with the new iPod touch (n72ap).
The device has a new GID key (I assume this is because it uses a different processor; the S5L8720x, rather than the S5L8900 used in the first iPod touch, iPhone and iPhone 3G), which means that none of the system images can be decrypted.

Each image contains a KBAG tag which is 0×20 long (64 bytes) that is decrypted by the hardware AES engine, then the resulting keys are used to decrypt the image itself.
Since the GID key differs from every other device, you can only decrypt KBAG tag data using n72ap itself.
Of course, this leads you to a dead end, since you use either the kernel or iBoot to gain access to the hardware AES engine (which usually cannot be accessed).
A new exploit will have to be found to allow access to the hardware AES engine first, so that the KBAG data can then be decrypted, which will then allow for images to be decrypted and modified.

So, we have to wait for a new low-level exploit or settle for something less than Pwnage (probably not possible, since 2.x is locked down).
Unfortunately, I don’t think this will happen very quickly, since the Dev Team is actually the iPhone Dev Team, and they don’t seem to prioritize the iPod touch.
Here’s to hoping though!

Props to Chronic and WEsTbAeR– for making the processor and model information available so quickly.
I assume that one of the two, or both, also discovered that th


iPod Touch 2G Has Bluetooth?!?!

September 11, 2008

UPDATE- the bluetooth chip is actully for the Nike+iPod so it could connect wirelessly to your shoes

The people fROM have dissasembled the iPod Touch 2G and what a suprise they found a BLUETOOTH CHIP INSIDE

  • The other side of the wireless circuitry, battery, and logic board.
  • At the top of the picture above the battery is a metal cover. Underneath the cover is a Broadcom BCM4325 Bluetooth chip. Yes, that’s right, Bluetooth! Apple has said nothing of this publicly.
    • This particular bluetooth chipset supports BT2.1+EDR. No word yet on whether the one Apple included supports A2DP, which would enable stereo headphones.
    • Part #s: BCM4325GKWBG CD0825 B76332 P40 SF

New iPod Touch

September 10, 2008

Apple released the new iPod Touch today at their media event. The new iPod Touch matches up with the rumors, now sporting a curved back but retaining the same storage capacities. Features include:

– 2.1 Firmware
– Built-in speaker, volume controls
– Genius playlist
– Nike+iPod support
– Battery: 36 hours for music, 6 hours for video.
– $229 for 8GB, $299 for 16GB, $399 for 32GB

Apple also appears to be positioning the iPod Touch as a gaming device with a new ad that shows off a number of games and calls it the “funnest iPod ever”. Phil Schiller also demonstrated a number of games on stage, including Spore Origins, Real Soccer 2009 and Need for Speed: Undercover.

Spore Origins was released for the iPhone and iPod Touch just yesterday, and a first look gameplay video of Real Soccer 2009 has been posted to

The 2.1 upgrade will be available for free for current iPod Touch owners with Firmware 2.0.
