    I have a 8GB 3G Ipod Touch which was updated to 4.0.2 which I have just downgraded using the 2G 4.0 Firmware so that I can jailbreak it, but is there anyway I can get it back to 3rd Gen? If not what are the faults of doing this

    The iPod Touch 3G and 2G are identical in every way, except for the bootrom.

    You're fine on 2G firmware (Which is IDENTICAL to 3G firmware, except for no SHSH signature issues.)

    No faults!

    I find that Winterboard (application for themes) is very glitchy with 4.0, and not everything is... decent.

    It's REALLY difficult to find a decent theme is what I'm saying. And no theme is ever 100% complete... so it's kind of a pain in the ass trying to find a theme that has the icons for ALL of your applications.

    I recommend SBSettings, it's a neat little shortcut where you slide your finger along the status bar, and then it gives you a little menu.

    If you want backgrounding for your Apps... get

    Backgrounder
    and
    ProSwitcher


    The rest is kinda DIY... there's just so much stuff, but definitely get SBSettings

    You can't get viruses from any official package (or shouldn't be able to) because Saurik checks them all before putting them on Cydia.

    Remember to install the PDF exploit patcher for security!
