[QUOTE=mysteryman;16030315]is there any real difference? I did hear cydia allows you to get things off the app store for free.[/QUOTE] No theres nothing really thats in cydia that you have to pay for in the App store
[QUOTE=atrafelis;16073186]No theres nothing really thats in cydia that you have to pay for in the App store[/QUOTE] You can get installous, It's an app were you just look up an app (it doesnt show free ones) and download it for free... Jailbreaking is good because you can add sources in cydia. A source is a website that has thing for downloading to your ipod, be it themes or games or whatever, and you type that link into cydia and whatever is put up on that site will be in Cydia
I'm already jailbreaking, i just need to update my firmware, but i just bought a few games and i only use the itunes cards, i switched banks and the bank has this bullshit rule where i can't get a checking card until 18, while my old bank i could get one/had one. And i'm a bit strapped for about a week, i get my paycheck in like 3 days though. But out of curiosity, what should i use to do the jailbreaking?

You make it seem like there's a plethora of jailbrekaing tools out there. Haha.
Is there a good place i can find a tutorial of jailbreaking? Or should i just download redsnow and follow the readme. Also should i really upgrade to 3.0 firmware before doing this?

After that, open the app up and follow the instructions. Be prepared to hold down the Home+Sleep/Wake button for the time that it specifies, but it allows a bit of slack so don't worry if you held something down for 8 seconds instead of 10 seconds if everything on the screen starts to change. If you're really insecure, check out YouTube - but honestly, it's either going to work or it's going to start up your device normally.
[QUOTE=Teh_Cheese;16008463]1st. Upgrade to 3.0, it's the shit. Now, for jailbreaking... [list] You can get custom themes[/list] [list]You can get more useful apps[/list] [list]Tap to unlock[/list] [list]Change the Carrier[/list] [list]Make it so that safari and itunes don't use tilt for when you're laying down[/list] [list]Be a rebel to apple, yo.[/list] [list]Tons more[/list] [url]http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/[/url] (large jailbreak community)[/QUOTE] don't upgrade to 3.0 just yet, because most of my apps and games don't work at all in 3.0 I'm sticking with 2.2.1 until 3.0 matures and apps get updated. ...And there's no downside to jailbreaking, only good things.Customization is key. I bought the hardware, so I'll do anything I fucking want with it. If I want to install apps for free, then I will. If I want to change every aspect of my springboard layout or bootscreen logo, i will. and as long as you follow the instructions from the QuickPwn app, it's easy to jailbreak. If you fuck up, just restore in itunes and try it again. I had the best luch with QuickPwn and iTunes 8.1.0
[QUOTE=mysteryman;16010705]yeah but apple is just a bunch of money grabbers. I mean, i need to pay 10$ for an update? also, while doing this, can i brick my touch?[/QUOTE] It's nearly impossible to brick an iPhone or iPod Touch. I tried on my iPod as a joke with a friend and even when I thought I had accomplished it all I had to do is put it in DFU mode and restore.

Though it seems Apple are trying to trick people into thinking their phones (1G) are dead, the battery won't show on the lockscreen under 3.0, They did admit it was a software fault though, and enabling it under Supreme Preferences was a bad idea as there was interference with my speakers, lots of it. Jailbreaking is the best thing I've done with this phone really, the only downside is having too many apps that install a daemon, or a retarded about of Mobile Substrate plugins, as they do seem to make the phone chew memory a bit (yay for reading this somewhere). The themeing community is a bit dead now, but the old old themes are varied and very awesome, once in a while a almost perfect theme will turn up, but most times it's kist some badly made icons.
