    New Member, New to Jailbreaking my ipod touch.

    I bought an ipod touch and I wondered what "jailbreaking" is and how do I do it(where do I download it from/how do I add it to my ipod)?
    Also, once I have done it how do I add stuff like wallpapers etc.

    Thanks a lot

    That's how you jailbreak 2.1 , the latest firmware which allows you to use App Store.
    Jailbreaking allows you to use themes , and apps that apple doesn't want , as well as a few other things.
    Cydia is where you download unnaproved jailbroken apps.
    Installer just doesn't work.
    Winterboard is used for adding wall papers.
    There are tons of guides all around this site.

    Welcome to the forums. Is it a 2nd generation iPod Touch or just 1st generation. The 2g doesn't have a jailbreak yet if that's what you have. The Chronic Dev Team is working on it though. We just need to be patient.
