    Is there a way you can run apps that say they are incompatible with your iPod touch????

    Usually if it says that it is because the app was compiled on ARMV7 and will not run on your iPod (ARMV6). But if you want to try it, email me the ipa file and I can modify it so you can install it and try it out. Get the app in iTunes on your computer, right click on it and click "Show in Windows Explorer", and email that ipa file to me (valley.forge @ live.com).

    Yeah...you will need 7-zip, and Plist Editor for Windows. Open the ipa file with 7-zip and open Payload > appname.app and open Info.plist with Plist Editor for Windows. Then find any "requireCapabilities"s and "minimumOSVersion"s and just remove the whole <array>/<dictionary>. See if you can find what I am talking about.

    It will instal but crash on start. If it does work then it won't run well or has multiple problems.

    Developers often just want us to upgrade. Example: Calculator+ "Changing the minmim required iOS from 4.3 to 4.2" in version 1.3.1.

    Well, there's no way you're going to be able to run it, I'm afraid. Sorry.
