• New iPod Nano finally gets hacked

    Although there hasn't been much fanfare or many reports of ongoing work on hacking the iPod Nano it appears that the first hack is already been accomplished. A developer named James Whelton has performed a basic springboard hack.
    Basically he was able to remove an app from the springboard and replace it with a blank space. It's nothing major but it's a start. Here is what he had to say:
    The springboard hack is just the removal of a app and creation of a blank space. Not that amazing, but whats important is the bypass of Nano’s cache comparison, which compares any modded SB file and reverts it if it doesn’t like it, this opens up the possibility of hacking and modding, while not adding bootloaders or any of that fun stuff.

    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. With the bypass I figured out, I hope to enable these pretty soon. It seems like the OS is a rehashed version of the previous Nano’s OS.
