    In a few days, I'll be buying myself an iPod Touch. I was wondering if anyone could make a quick little guide on how to achieve the following in the best way.

    I want to:
    -Jailbreak the iPod (What version would be best to do the rest with?)
    -Put SummerBoard on for themes
    -Make my own themes

    If I wasn't low on time I would find it all out for myself.
    It would be great if someone could say what programs I need, and where I can get everything I need (I'm on PC by the way)

    Thanks in advance to anyone that tries to help!

    You will be getting an iPod Touch with firmware 2.0.2 I think?
    Which means you would be best off Jailbreaking with WinpwnGUI120 or Quickpwn 2.5
    Once you have jailbroken, you will get an application called Cydia, which you can then download Winterboard from.
    Then just read some tutorials on how to make your own theme

    Thanks, mind giving a quick explanation on what WinpwnGUI120, Quickpwn and Cydia are?
    Also, would it be easier downgrading to a lower version?

    *EDIT*
    Incase you haven't noticed, I know nothing about Jailbreaking

    WinpwnGUI120 and Quickpwn are just two different apps to jailbreak 2.0.2, you can use either.

    It would be harder actually to downgrade, as you'd have to downgrade iTunes as well.

    Cydia is like Installer for 1.1.4, it allows you to download apps made by others.

    To make your own theme(s), just check out this section: http://www.ifans.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=73

    Haha yep, Ok,
    Quickpwn 2.5 is a Quick Jailbreaker, I dont like it too much, but some people love it.
    WinpwnGUI120 is the best

    It is a FAST Jailbreaker that is really easy to follow.

    Cydia is an application that allows you to pretty much get ANYTHING you want onto your iPod.
    It installs programs onto your iPod quickly and efficiantly

    You get Cydia from Jailbreaking your iPod/iPhone.

    Don't downgrade, just creates problems for yourself, and 2.0 is better

    Ok, so just to double check...
    Cydia 'replaces' Installer.app completely, and Winterboard/Summerboard themes are exactly the same, just used on different versions?
    (I also do NOT have a wireless network, so can all of this be done through the PC COMPLETELY?)

    There is an installer, buts its not quite as good as Cydia, Cydia blows installer out of the water

    Yes, Winterboard and Summerboard are the same but for different versions.
    Eeeep, Jailbreaking is useless unless you have Wi-Fi

    Beg your parents or if your older and own your own comp/house/whatever go out and buy Wireless.

    Now when you jailbreak, you get Cydia AND Installer.
    And the themes thing is correct, I'm pretty sure.
    You need wifi to install any apps, and to SSH your themes..
    There is a guide how to make a wireless network without a router though, link: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12502&highlight=computer wireless wifi

    It may work for you.
