Well, it's done. And it was done by a 13 year old.

Don't know about the legality of it

I'd say hacking it probably isn't illegal - unlike the Iphone, there's no contract with an Ipod. Far as I can see there's no encryption being broken.

Installing the apps probably is illegal if they're original Iphone apps, they're Apples software and you only get a licence to use them with the Iphone.

If they're 3rd party apps, I doubt there's a problem.

I'm not a lawyer of course, so YMMV.

There is always a software license when you purchase hardware with software on it. The EULA would forbid the hacking. Hence, against our forum rules.

Locking thread.
