    Hi, i have a newly jailbroken ipod touch 2g, and im trying to find an AIM or SMS app that will notify me that i got a message even when the app is closed. If i need a new Cydia source, please give me that also.

    Thanks

    At this point in time your best bet is to download an IM client from the AppStore, Nimbuzz if your cheap and beejive if you are loaded. Then auto enable backgrounding of these apps.

    This will allow you to use other apps with IM in the background so it will make a noise when you receive a new message.

    Use backgrounder, which is on cydia. It will allow you to make apps run in the background, although be careful because you can load up your RAM very quickly.

    If you are jailbroken, you can download and install backgrounder via Cydia.

    Also, you can use push notifications (for some programs), and an email will be sent to you whenever you are sent a message.

    I do this with IM+ Lite, doesn't work well so far. Safari causes it to crash due to lack of ram...
