    Was I so unfortunate that I seriously bought the ONLY iPod model that can't be jailbroken? The 3.1 "MC" model, from what I have seen, is impossible to jailbreak but every single iPod model before AND after it can be jailbroken untethered.

    WTF.

    Umm.. MC iPods are the latest models, so there are none after it. And they can be jailbroken, just tethered.

    Are they ever going to be able to be untethered jailbroken?

    the iphone dev team has a jailbreak for it but they will not waste it on a small update, they'll probably wait for 4.0.

    What's the big deal about tethered? Really, how many times do you turn your iPod off?

    A lot, actually. Include restarts after installing packages and stuff, and it IS a big deal.

    Most of the stuff on Cydia you need to restart for is in the Featured Packages section. Just install the stuff you need/want immediately after you jailbreak, and boom! Tethered suddenly isn't bad at all! In fact, I install stuff from Cydia every day, and I haven't restarted my iPhone since 2 days after I got it (when I first jailbroke).

    Emm, battery IS a consideration as well. You can use it longer if you turn if off instead of just resting.

    You do know that sleep mode uses less battery than what it would when you turn it off and then back on, right? The processes used to start and turn off use as much battery as when you sleep for an hour, maybe hour and a half.

    Like b-mac 39 said, it actually takes more battery to turn it on and off everyday. I mean, if you plan to turn it off for a week or a month, then yea, I guess the battery won't die as fast, but no one does that
