    you dont lose your WIFI and hold the home button for 5 sec when you are going to home screen then you wont lose any battery life

    Battery loss? Mine's fine... It might be because your SSH might be on, turn it off using SBSettings, or Bossprefs.

    Don't know what you're talking about for either.. I don't have those kind of problems ever. Also, I don't think there is a downside to Jailbreaking, other than you can't turn you iPod back on without a Command Prompt, but that's only temporary for reds0w.

    Battery loss? Is that really a problem? It is all of the things that you may leave running after you leave them. SSH, WiFi, and others. You need to close everything. Animated backgrounds on your Springboard can cause decreased battery life, but just charge it back.

    Don't forget decreasing brightness helps a lot.

    no, you lose all your songs when you restore. Not jailbreak. Just so happens that jailbreaking involves some restore.
