    So I have decided to jail brake. I have a few questions though,
    if i jailbrake, will everything on my ipod touch be working properly like before the jailbrake. Also, whats the best firmware out there right now thats the most compatible, and stable? My main concern is that if i jail brake, some of the apps and features Im use to wont work (like safari, maps etc), will this be an issue? Thanks for the time boys.

    Your iPod will be fine bud, 3.0 is glitchy for some, while others its fine for.

    2.2.1 is the most stable I would say, but I would recommend 3.0.

    i am still on the 2.2.1 FW broke with redsn0w 0.3, waiting for the 3.0 bugs to get worked out

    2.2.1 works like a charm

    you can restore from a backup, but its better if you do it clean on 3.0. just resync all of your songs and stuff. all apps will work.

    download a theme off cydia than it should automatically install winterboard to get the theme, and I wouldn't reccomend gettign emulators unless you like GBA games, but its illegal, too lazy to explain how to get it since im still on 2.2.1, search on youtube on how to get it
