I ran a jailbreak installer on my iPod today. QuickPwn 1.1 from the torrent is what I installed, to be precise.

Some of the software there is slow. A lot of it is the usual kind of semi-porting from unix via a ports tree that you see on Macs all the time, now just brought to the iPod. There are some good things there, polished apps, to be sure. But you have to be careful and choosy.

I also wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who isn’t comfortable with a unix shell, and able to shell in from another computer. Too much can go wrong not to have that option.

Of course it’s also a good idea to back up the iPod beforehand, in case it needs reset and reinstalled from iTunes.
