iPod Touch: Hackers discover new exploit, gain new ground against Apple

iPod Touch: Hackers discover new exploit, gain new ground against AppleFinally! It’s been a while since anyone’s made any progress toward hacking the iPod Touch, and, thanks to a hacker named Niacin, the iPod Touch is a few steps closer to being third party app compatible.

According to Hackint0sh and Niacin himself, using the tiff exploit, they’ve "managed to expose the root partition via the symlink hack."

Do you know what that means? ‘Cause I sure don’t.

Anyway, the exploit apparently works with iPhone firmwares 1.0.2 and 1.1.1 and iPod Touch firmware 1.1.1.

If you appreciate the work these guys do, you can donate here and/or here.

I can’t say for sure if this is related to the recent successful jailbreak of the iPhone 1.1.1 firmware, but, seeing as how the iPhone is very similar to the iPod Touch, it wouldn’t be surprising if they’re applying what they learned about the iPhone to hacking the Touch.

With the way things are moving right now, it shouldn’t be too long until the first 3rd party app install tools begin to surface.
