    Yes, you have to jailbreak to use your own wallpaper as well as just about all other theming elements.

    Darn, I am afraid of jailbreaking... I am so new... Are there any programs for Windows that like does most of it for me... or is there a program that you just plug your ipod in to and then you hit the jailbreak button...

    ^^ The link jlocalled gave you is for jailbreaking the 1st gen iPod Touch..
    Go here for jailbreaking the 2nd gen one.. I've never tried it before, but it seems a bit more complicated than jailbreaking the 1st gen coz they have QuickPwn (a very friendly user interface) for the 1st gen..

    oops, didn't see that they had a 2g. So follow a tutorial or use one of the friendly GUI's avaliable. Otherwise, I don't recommend doing a jailbreak on the 2g. Remember that it is a tethered jailbreak. You need to send the patch by command line, or use one of the Quick GUI Booters. Make sure it really won't work before making a thread saying it is bricked, or won't boot.

    Customize could do that, but it doesn't really work well.

    To edit system strings such as "slide to unlock" and "slide to cancel" etc, you will need to do use your computer, copy over your SpringBoard.strings, and edit it.
