Those characters are all that is keeping the iPod Touch 2g from a tether-less Jailbreak. The Dev team have already released both tethered and semi tethered jailbreak. With some more playing they now have the iPod Touch 2g within 8 bytes of booting without a tether. With a little work you can even create a dongle yourself to boot your Jailbroken iPod Touch while on the go.
The video above by MuscleNerd demonstrates a dongle in action. Expect instructions on how to make this happen soon via The Dev Team.
