    Hello there!

    I don't have it yet, but i'm getting an iPod Touch for Hannukah.

    I see a lot of internet buzz about 'jail breaking' an iPod touch. I keep looking but i can't find an answer to this question.

    WHAT DOES JAIL BREAKING DO? WHY SHOULD ONE DO IT?

    in other words, what can a jail broken touch do that a regular one can't?

    that's all i want to know. if this question is answered in another thread then direct me to it, and i apologize for wasting everyones time.

    jailbreaking is actually setting ur ipod free from the restriction that apple has put on it!
    as of now u CANNOT JAILBREAK AN IPOD TOUCH SECOND GENERATION!

    but chronic dev is working on it and it will be out soon..jhopefully
    jailbreaking allows tou to add themes and applications like cydia and installer which are like app store but the apps found in there are free!
    jailbreaking allows u to modify the GUI(graphical user interface) also

    You can still buy first gens in stores, only at some best buys though. Walmart had them online a few weeks ago. And their going for a steal. I got a first gen 16gb for the price of a 8gb 2nd gen today at bestbuy. To me its worth it since their easily jailbreakable.
