iPod touch ‘jailbreak’ apps released

Two new applications provide a graphical user interface for “jailbreaking” the iPod touch.

iJailBreak for Intel-based Mac systems and touchFree for Windows both allow iPod touch owners to “jailbreak” their units, paving the way for installation of a variety of third-party native applications, as well as hacks such as calendar editing and Apple-approved apps such as Mail and Maps.

Apple does not support installation of third-party applications on the iPhone or iPod touch.
