    hi and welcome

    jailbreaking is a 100%legal act that allows you to edit the system files outside of apples code. you can also get 3rd party apps that apple wont allow. it is mainly used for themeing but games and emulators are also very popular. right now a jailbreak called redsn0w is in the works and is used to jailbreak the so far unjialbreakable ipod touch 2g which it looks like you have.
    hope that helped you out.

    You can jailbreak your iPod touch with a program called quicklwn or pwnage. It allows you to have 3rd party apps from cydia and installer. You can also have themes and emulator which are pretty cool.

    basically what he said, but at the moment, the redsn0w jailbreak isn't officially out. they have a little problem with it, where u can upload the jailbreak, then if u turn off ur ipod at all, u lose it. so they are trying to make the jailbreak permenant. once that happens, they will be able to release a tool to let all of us jailbreak our 2g ipod touches.

    if u have any other questions on the redsn0w jailbreak, or anything else, please refer to the redsn0w subforum, and there u will find a few faqs. and if ur questions still isn't answered, look through some of the threads, u may find what ur looking for. then if not, just post about it.

    allows you to run unsigned codes. for e.g. changing your ipod's theme or winterboards. or use ssh on your ipod
