Updated my iPod to the latest firmware today (1.1.4). Decided it was about time I cast off the shackles of vendor lock-in and got hold of iJailbreak. 45 seconds later I’ve got an iPod on which I can install any program I like. My iPod now hosts an FTP server and an AFP server, and has an NES emulator, ScummVM, an RSS reader, a podcast synchroniser, a couple of musical instrument simulators and an Etch-a-Sketch program.
Should have done it ages ago.
