    Hi guys! I'm somewhat new to the jailbreaking community. I have an iPod touch 2nd gen 8gig non mc model. I know to use red snow and how to jailbreak. I just in jail broke my touch because I'm not able to change the root password on 4.0 firmware. Do you need to/want to change it?? Or is it not necessary. From my understanding it is that if you don't change it you are vulnerable to being hacked or something. Is this true or can people only hack you if you give them your ip adress??

    No, just upgrade to 4.0 if your not on it already.
    Go to the safari browser on the iPod touch and visit jailbreakme.com
    Follow the simple instructions to jailbreak your iPod Touch
    Done

    I know how to jailbreak it. I just restored it because I wasn't able to change the root password. Is it necessary to change it??

    No. Not at all - you just need to sync with iTunes before jailbreaking.

    Okay no not that. After I am jailbroken do I need to change my root password to avoid being hacked?? Or can they only get that from my ip??

    install the rock.app from cydia and the first time you launch it it gives you the chance to change it otherwise you need to wait for mobile terminal to be updated to work with the 4.0 iOS.
