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.
