Video Daily: iPod Nano hacked
Although there are little details known so far, it appears the 6th generation iPod Nano has been hacked.

Developer James Whelton has "managed to bypass the device’s cache comparison," explains MacStories and install a very basic Springboard hack, allowing for blank space creation and app removal.

Whelton makes it clear that the device has not been jailbroken by any means, but the hack should be the start of something larger. He encourages other devs to begin looking for ways to install bootloaders on the tiny gadget.

Says Whelton:
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.
