    Hello!

    I had a 3rd generation iPod Touch and I jailbroke it with spirit. I didn't and still don't know anything about what to load first or what is compatible with what. I just downloaded things and played around with it. It worked pretty well for about 3 or 4 months and then one time I changed the theme and it totally bricked. It had no response to anything would not go into dfu mode. So I took it to the apple store knowing that they would not be able to turn it on either and thus, would not know it was jailbroken. They gave me a new one with the 3.1.3 . it is a 64gb. I want to jailbreak again, but am as stupid as I was in the first place. Is there a better program to jailbreak with, and where is the best place to get step by step instructions on what to load that is safe. I know there is always a risk, but I read these forums and it seems there are certain bad combinations. i know nothing!!! thankx!!!!!

    I went to the apple store yesterday and that is what I got. I thought it was because I hadn't updated the old one, but they would have no way of knowing that. So I don't know.

    Should I update it before I jailbreak it? what program should I use with that firmware? After jailbreak Is there anything important to load on ipod immediately. Youtube has so may videos that I wouldn't know what is compatible. I am just trying to found out what are the best precautions that I can take to prevent bricking again. Is there some website or something in Cydia that could help me learn about it? I don't even kn0w what half of the things are in there and trial and error got me bricked last time. But I want to play with all the neat-o things so I must jailbreak!!!! Any help would be appreciated!!

    Thanks,
    Denise
