    Hi guys, this is my first post, I am a complete newbie to the ipod touch, but i already know its the best thing since sliced bread, i have one question, and no doubt it has been asked before, i know what jailbreaking is, but can someone tell me what the point of it is, are there many applications games or programs out there for the touch, i am only asking because if its worth doing then do it i will, many thanks in advance.

    The main reason that people jailbreak, is to cutomize their ipod touch, E.G. with custom backgrounds, icons, music player themes, etc.

    Complete customization, playstation NES and gameboy emulators, third party apps that apple wouldn't allow in the app store, cydia is what you use to download it all, and cracked apps which are illegal so don't do it. There's much much more then that too, so once redsn0w, the jailbreaking system for the 2g, comes out, do it.

    2G iPod touch
    This is what I wrote in Yahoo Answers, so instead of writing it out again, I will just copy and paste it.

    How isn't there any point to not jailbreak it? Except for the fact that at the moment the 2g is currently un jail-breakable and a reason for jail breaking would be to customize. Also there are tons of Apps that get rejected by the App Store (linux) and lots that started out as jail-broken apps (Tap Tap Revenge). And at the people who say that it violates your warranty, this is true, but if something does go wrong with your touch, you can restore it to "GET" your warranty back. Some other things that you can get in the jailbreak that you can't in the App Store is emulators. These allow you to play GameBoy Advance, Playstation 1 games, and others on your iPod. All the things that I listed are only available on the 1g at the moment, because the 2g is un-jail breakable, but all of those and some much more will be available on the 2g once it is jail broken.
