    Jailbreaking just gives you a lot more options for your iPod.
    You can theme it, install 3rd party programs and tweak pretty much everything.
    Jailbreak 2.2; it's the best.

    Ok man... well jailbreaking just lets you install apps that expand the things that your ipod touch can do. You can use themes which are awesome and a huge reason that most people jailbreak. To jailbreak an ipod you must have quickpwn (for firmware 2.0 and higher) or ziphone (1.1.5 or lower). If you have the appstore, then you have 2.0 or higher, if you don't then you have 1.1.5 or lower. There is no cost unless you have 1.1.5 or lower and wish to upgrade to 2.0 through itunes.

    Hope this helps!

    What firmware version are you on?
    You can see it in your iTunes info panel and in the "About" section on your iPod's "Settings" app.

    He can sell it for more to the people who really don't know about hacking things and are willing to buy stuff new on ebay to avoid any risk.

    YES. there are those non-resourceful people out there.
