    You have to jailbreak to get installer on there, although, if you have a 2G touch you cant yet jailbreak.

    oh.. i have 2g... but then i thought 2g was good because it didnt require any jailbreaking...

    so the only way i can get themes or customize is to jailbreak and i cant jailbreak now?

    The 2G is thinner and has a built-in speaker along with volume controls; it doesn't come 'pre-jailbroken'... and the App Store's available with any device using Firmware 2.x. So at this point, you're kinda stuck if you want to customize anything other than the lock screen wallpaper. And Customize for 2.x is pretty dead anyways, and has been since July.

    Customize has been defeated by Winterboard.

    I highly recommend getting Cydia instead of Installer. It is newer and much better. Also, make sure to get Winterboard. It is a must for all of the customization available for your jailbroken iPod.

    yeah you have to jailbreak and don't use installer, it used to be good and stuff, but since 2.x, Cydia is the way to go!
