sn0wbreeze 1.6 to jailbreak iPhone 4.0 on second-gen Touch

updated 12:35 pm EDT, Mon May 31, 2010

Hack currently in beta

People should be able to jailbreak the second-generation iPod touch when iPhone 4.0 is released in the near future, says iH8sn0w. The independent coder has been working on iPhone 4.0 jailbreaks since early April, and is now teasing a beta sn0wbreeze 1.6 hack with support for the older Touch model. The final v1.6 release should come after Apple officially launches the updated iPhone firmware, likely in tandem with upgraded hardware.

Like the iPhone 3G, the second-gen Touch will not support all iPhone 4.0 features. Critically absent will be multitasking, probably as a result of both memory and processor limitations. Only the third-gen Touch, the next-generation iPhone and the iPhone 3GS will support all options. The second-gen Touch should, however, support added conveniences like app folders.
