    First of all, is the iPod Touch a second generation or the 1G ?
    You are able to jailbreak it if you have a 1G, but not a 2G.. Not YET.. (will be released soon)

    Basically, it is a program which allows you to get things like games, apps, themes, etc. for free.

    if u have 1st generation you can jailbreak it.

    if u have 2nd generation you cant.

    jailbreaking it is basically customizing ur ipod by adding 3rd party apps, themes. etc. its all free.

    Michelle, Jailbreaking modifies the software of the device to allow for the installation of unsanctioned 3rd party applications. You can get 3rd party applications from the App Store, but with jailbreak, you have access to the filesystem, and can even theme your device. There is no jailbreak for the second generation iPod touch yet. There is a lot of speculation about when it will be released.

    Jailbreaking will give you root access to your device thus owning it, well you did oay for it so why the hell not.


    Having root access means you can do ANYTHING on it! within hardware limitations.

    If you ask a dumb question, you get a dumb answer:

    I didn't want salmon, I said it four times!
