    Thank you for the link m8, it’s a question my son is asking and is still very new to this. There wasn’t any apps on his touch before jailbroken, did you need to have any apps on the touch for the jailbreak to work properly hope it makes sense in what I am saying.

    you can still use apps from the app store. you can also install cydia which is like an aftermarket app store that has stuff apple does not want you to have, like theme changers and toggles and much more.

    you do not need to have any apps on the ipod before you jail break it. i had stuff on mine, but after the jailbreak i had to resync all the items back that were on there pre-jail break.

    yeah. u can still go into the apple store, and get stuff. which is a nice thing. also, u can get this app from cydia called mxtube which u can download youtube videos on ur ipod so u don't need wifi to watch them. kinda cool. just a word of advice. if u ever have problems with the ipod, and u are gonna call up apple or go to an apple store, don't say u jailbroke it, and restore to default factory settings before...

    also, a few more tips...
    Remind him that he CANNOT reboot without a pc
    If you get winterboard from Cydia - MAKE SURE NOT TO REBOOT (There is a tutorial on how to do this)
    And after JB'ing.... DONT LET iTUNES restore! - manually re-sync your items
