    This is the usual basic for everything you need to get started.

    What You Need:
    Jailbroken iPod Touch/iPhone with SSH to install apps.
    An SFTP program. WinSCP or CuteFTP.
    A text editor. NotePad, WordPad, or NotePadd++.
    ToolChain(described below)
    Knowledge of Objective-C 1.0 for apps using firmware 1.1.1-1.1.4.(Sources Below)
    Knowledge of Objective-C 2.0 for apps using firmware 2.0 and up.(Sources Below)

    Windows Users:
    You need to build a toolchain with 1.1.4 or 2.0 frameworks.(http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61883)
    2.0 framework tutorials are not yet made for Windows users.

    Mac Users:
    Preferably the iPhone SDK. Get it from the ADC(http://developer.apple.com/). A FREE ACCOUNT IS REQUIRED!! REMEMBER: IT'S FREE!!
    Or
    Build the toolchain with 1.1.4 or 2.0 frameworks(http://wikee.iphwn.org/howto:toolchain_on_leopard_aspen)

    I will edit this periodically. Post what you think will be a good source or ideas. This is a really bad version but I made this fairly fast so editing WILL take place. This is not 100% complete!

    Last time I checked I need to pay $299/year or something for Apple to be able to port my application to iPhone if I use official SDK, and then Apple Store would take 30% revenue if my application is commercial.

    Therefore if you are just someone who wants to learn the basics or just wants to make some small applications for fun then I would actually recommend using the toolchain even if you are on Mac.
