    Ok, I will admit, I am also a noob, so i want to get some info, and hopefully help some others with the impending redsn0w jailbreak.

    If you want to ask a question, feel free, but follow the rules!

    No asking how to install, or acquire pay apps (cracked apps). I will personally report you to apple, and they will come and take your iPod back.

    Be nice. Don't demand answers. Ask politely, and your more likely to get a response!

    Now, here are my questions.

    1) How can i put Java on my iPod? I thought it came with it natively when I bought it, and that was the main reason I bought one. Now with the jailbreak, I can put Java on, but have no idea how. Can someone post the instructions?

    2) How do you change the standard black background behind the app buttons? What is that called (Springboard/Winterboard)?

    Thanks!

    1) I'd like to know that too, but there is no 2g jailbreak yet. Just wait for a few days, it'll come out.

    2) That's called either Summerboard or Winterboard. I think both do the same thing, I can't tell you, but someone may be able to confirm this, since I didn't get the chance to use Winterboard before my iPod Touch 1g died.

    Sounds awesome, kind of like a better version of Customize.
    Can you edit string tables in Winterboard? Ex: "slide to unlock" = "unlock to slide"?

    What about adding Java? Wouldn't it be the same as the 1G Touch?

    I don't see why it would be different.
