    Hey everyone, my name is Dan and I'm completely blown away by this forum. Now to the bad news...I know little to nothing about technology so I'm gonna' ask a lot of stupid question so please have some patience with me.

    Here we go:

    After reading through a lot of threads I now know what Jailbreaking is. But what I want to know, in simplified terms if its possible, is what it will do for my iPod. I own a 3G iPod with version 3.1.3. I haven't upgraded to 4.0 because I've read about a lot of bad things happening to iPods after this upgrade. Unfortunately, the other problem is that I'm on dial up, and that really sucks. If and when I decide to go to 4.0, the upgrade to to 4.0 would take about a whole day with dial up!

    Which Jailbreak is best for my iPod? I read that some people are experiencing lock up with their iPods after they Jailbreak. Is this because they used the wrong type of Jailbreak? I mean, should I use Blackrain or Spirit, or should I go to Jailbreakme.com?

    I know I'll have more questions for you guys, but I really want to learn about this tech stuff because I'm hooked on my iPod.

    Thanks to all who help out!

    Dan

    Okay cause you have a 3.1.3 ipod touch 3g, spirit is your best-bet being designed for 3.1.3 especially and works for all devices on 3.1.3
    So just google spirit and download it, then jailbreak in one click.

    Happy to help.

    If you really want to stay on 3.1.3 then use spirit from spiritjb.com to jailbreak. In a way I still wish I was on 3.1.3 because many of the tweaks still work on that firmware. But I'm on 4.0 with a jailbroken iPod touch 3G and haven't experienced any problems yet.

    And welcome to the forums! I and others will be happy to answer any questions. But remember to always use the search function above before posting a new thread (just to make sure there aren't so many threads that ask the same question). And be sure to check out the rules.

    Wow, that was fast! Thanks a lot for the replies/help!

    daitem11-what is a gba player? If I can't get wifi in my home is it still worth Jailbreaking? I mean, I can go to a local pizza place that has wifi for its customers if I need to, and that gives me an excuse to eat more pizza! LOL!!!

    He was referring to the GBA emulator. I allows you to play GameBoy advance games on your iPod. You will need wifi or cyder to use the jailbreak, however.
