    So you already have jailbroken your iPod, right?

    Then, you're suppose to see an "installer" icon on your iPod. That's an application(later mention as "app") called Installer. There, you can installer third-party(non Apple) apps on your iPod.

    Installer installs apps through the Internet. There are many servers that have iPod apps. In order to connect to them and download stuffs, you need to have the server's address, called sources, or repository(repo).
    Here's how to add them: (The following guide needs you to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi)
    1. Launch Installer
    2. On the bottom, click "Sources"
    3. On the top left corner, click on "Edit"
    4. The "Edit" will then change to "Add"
    5. Click on "add"
    6. A dialogue box will jump out, promting you to enter an address
    7. Now go here on your computer Source List
    8. Find a source that has the app you like, then add them by typing the address to the dialogue box on your iPod
    9. Then click "add"
    10. Wait for it to refresh, and your done!

    How to use Installer: (The following guide needs you to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi)
    1. Launch Installer
    2. On the bottom, select "Install"
    3. You will see a bunch of categories describing what apps it contain.
    4. Click on one of them
    5. Then click on a app you want to install
    6. After viewing its description and then you can click on "Install" on the top left corner
    7. Wait for it to finish downloading and installing, after that, you will be brought back to the categories menu.
    8. Click on your home button, and wait
    9. Now you will notice the app that you just install!
    10. I would prefer you to install an app called "BossTool" FIRST. You can search it in the "All packages" search bar
    11. After installing, launch BossTool. And click on relocate Ringtone, click "Yes", and wait. Then Font, then Application
    12. After all of that is relocated, you can then remove BossTool( Describe below)

    How to uninstall apps: (You do not need Wi-Fi connected this time)
    1. Launch Installer
    2. Click "Uninstall"
    3. Click on an app you want to throw away
    4. Click on "Unisntall" on the top right corner
    5. Wait, then you will be bring back to the "Uninstall" menu
    6. You are now done. Click on Home button to go back to you home screen, and the app you removed is gone

    That's pretty much how you install and uninstall stuffs on your iPod touch
    Hope my guide help

    You probs haven't seen a 50 year old because you are to self centered to see anyone apart from people your age, which im assuming is maybe 9 or 10?

    I hate to see people respond the way they did, makes me realize whats wrong with the world today, and for people who dont get it, im talking about kids who cant see past themselves because their parents dont discipline them.... Its sad.....

    But back to the original poster. welcome aboard man, ignore the few kids on this website, we can only hope they will one day grow up.

    It does take a little time to learn the jargon and how the ipod works, but i would suggest reading a few threads on it, and you will pick it up in no time.

    Good Luck
