It's a iPod Touch 2G jailbreak.

"Flurry of Dev Team activity fuels hopes for imminent 2G jailbreak

The iPhone Dev-Team's various web pages have seen a flurry of updates in the last few hours in what appear to be final hints of a forthcoming iPod touch 2G jailbreak.

The image hosted on the mysterious "redsn0w" webpage was updated to add what looked to many observers like some sort of hash or key (zoomed in above), and confirmation has come from Dev-Team member MuscleNerd posting on our forums:

When asked in the same 2000-post long thread how soon we can expect a usable payload, he replied

If that's not enough confirmation, the Dev-Team's blog has been updated with a post that points even more strongly towards imminent news about the 2G touch. Describing their latest exploit, they say "...it certainly isn?t iPhone 3G related (right now). There is one other device... It fits in your pocket.."

If there is one thing that is certain, it is that the next few days are going to be an exciting time for the iPod touch community."

Speculation says the "official" release date for RedSn0w is Friday, 30 January.
