For those adventurous iPod touch 2G owners out there, you now have an(other) option to Jailbreak your little precious.  The Dev-Team is releasing Redsn0w today as a command line only application but expects to have a full GUI version available shortly.

Anyone out there doing the command line?  Let us know how it goes.

To us in the cheap seats, we’d have to wonder exactly what you will do with this jailbreak?  Most of our iPhone Jaibroken apps are for iPhone-only tools like video and 3G Tethering.  Maybe we need to have another look at Cydia.
