You can temporarily fix this if this solution will work:
disassemble the hood release in the cabin and pull the cable until the hood latch opens. Then you can remove or adjust the cable as necessary.

You need to bend a hook in a coat hanger and then try to snag the cable end from the front of the truck,just below the hood.If you know someone who's truck you can look at[any chev or gmc truck] it will be easier for you to figure out.You may possibly have enough cable left inside the truck to get a pair of vise grips on,that would be easier.

Try smacking down on the hood with a open hand.You may want to have someone inside to pull the lever while you hit on the hood.If you do get it open spray everthing down with a good lubicant.Well good luck and hope this helped.

Testimonial: "It worked just fine .I also used some wd40.Thanks"
Remove the cable from the latch and any hold downs or clamps. Push the rubber gromet through the fire wall into the car. Remove the handel assy. and pull
the cable assy.out through the fire wall. Now, if the
gromet can be removed. You can decide if you wan't
to put it back from under the dash, or under the hood.
Whatever is easiest for you, but if it can't, it has to go
back from under the dash. Hope this helps.

this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.
