    I'm in the process of creating a list to help me decide if I really want or need to Jailbreak (again!) ( I did Jailbreak but it crashed and I was forced to reinstall Apples firmware)

    This is what I have so far:

    For

    1 I can change the background
    2 I can put a (small) video as a background
    3 I can emulate older consoles
    4 I can have 5 icons on screen (instead of 4)
    5 I can change the look of the icons and text of the ipod
    6 I would have access to more applications
    7 Ability to play video and music formats not officially supported




    Against

    1 Loose power and I have to reboot using a PC, unless I learn to program and build electronic circuit boards.
    2 I can download apps from the app store if I want to play games etc
    3 I am happy using my ipod as it is
    4 I would only be showing off the fact I can jailbreak my ipod
    5 I would only have the apps from the apple app store


    "There are many more reasons both for and against that I've not added/included because they have no interest to me.
    If you have other suggestions please list them here."

    PS. I'm talking about Tethered and not semi. As there are still to many problems with apps etc not working with the latter.

    well

    at the moment, i wouldnt jailbreak. IF an untethered jailbreak comes out i will use that. and you should too, its too much of a hassle messing around with jailbreaking at the moment. so stay on offical apple software updates for now.

    Hell... I'd jailbreak
    I love my themes and emulators. Also the fact that you can disable apples killswitch!!!
    I like not being controlled by apple =D

    Jailbreak your ipod now. its so much fun and when you get experienced you can charge people 5 bucks to jailbreak their ipods like i do. im making alot of money now! emulators are a blast and the themes are to die for. i really reccomend jailbreaking your ipod. i never turn off my ipod unless my battery dies. hope you make a desicion that makes YOU happy.
