    jailbreak is to hack your ipod and release it from apples "jail" of closed software (AKA Appstore) and open it up to un approved apps and tweaks, and there is no jailbreak out for the 2g yet.

    Welcome to the forum! You can't jailbreak the iPod Touch 2G yet, but don't worry, you will be able to do it soon! But please, search before you post. It doesnt matter now, because you are a newbie, but there are millions of threads about the 2G jailbreak, and some users get angry (including me

    read some of the stickies or use the search button. like nikj14 said a jailbreak allows you to install third party apps that are not approved by the apple. google jailbroken apps and you should get an idea of what you can do. currently the 2g jailbreak is not out yet. There are two teams who have managed to jailbreak it but its currently tethered. meaning that you need to plug it in to your computer each time you reboot. You can visit the iphone dev team's site at blog.iphone-dev.org or chronic devs site at www.chronic-dev.com/blog. where you can get occaisional updates on their progress. hope i helped
