iPod Nano 6G Jailbreak

The iPod Nano hasn’t been “jailbroken” as some sites claim but it has been hacked. Hacker, James Whelton, claims to not have root access over the device. He did not “install” an app. He figured out how to remove an app and insert a blank space into the springboard.

What he’s also done is figured out a way for the iPod to boot with modified files (i.e. the SpingBoard plist), bypassing the procedure it takes to stop this, he hope this will allow us to figure out a way to jailbreak it. Whelton is primarily focusing on exposing some of the (for now) hidden features of the device.

Next is the discovery in some of the device’s plists of reference to support of Movies, TV Shows, Apps, Games, vCards, Calender events and so on, with a few other cool things like a passcode lock.

Below are some screenshots of the code. Be sure to follow us and our YouTube channel for information and tutorials on this story. If you happen to own an iPod Nano 6G, will you be hacking when it’s available? Let us know by leaving a comment!

  1. I definitely will. I plan to hack an iPod Nano into a high tech pocketwatch, and being able to change the clock (when it's jailbroken) and being able to play video or other things like that would be extraordinary!

    1. if someone could find a way to change the clock into a digital clock somehow id pay money to download that. i want to use my ipod nano as a watch but id much rather see a digital clock on my arm than a digital device with ticking arms you have to read what they point to. digital clocks display time accurately and is very fast to read. if someone could hack this to work id be willing to pay like 10.00$ and im very sure others would too. i cannot believe apple hasnt done this already i think they are going to work on a next device that is actually a watch and have that feature. they always leave something out so they can 1 up the last model.
