    haha thats ok. Jailbreaking is the practice of taking an iDevice (iPhone,iPad,iPod Touch) and injecting code into an exploit useing a jailbreak too. This installs a 3rd party app known as Cydia which is similar to the app store accept it has hundreds of tweaks and mods for your idevice. It is legal some of the things you can do with it are not. (ie. pirateing,ROMs, etc)

    Jailbreaking is basically having things that an iPod or iPhone wouldnt normally have. Like if you jailbreak, you get to download all sorts of cool tweaks and mods. For example, getting a custom made theme for your iPod if you dont like the old black background with normal colored apps.
    Then you could change the name "iPod" from the top left of the status bar to anything youd like.

    It's a way to pimp out your ipod/iphone. Like themes/free apps or even add flash etc. Not having to pay for apps is the best reason to jb it.

    Jailbreaking is how you can customize your idevice any way you want it to be.

    Jailbreaking is the act of running any unsupported code on a device (any device, not just an iPod/iPhone) and allowing root access. It can also be referred to as "rooting" in other devices (IE Android and Palm) because of the root access it provides.

    Oh yeah, welcome to the forums, if you have any further questions, ask, we don't bite...

    That's a mockery to the jailbreak scene and to some of us (devs especially).
