    Alright, here's the deal.

    I have an iPod Touch 2G. I know multitasking isn't supported without a jailbreak.

    But my question is, Currently the only good multitasking app is ProSwitcher, and it has a different interface compared to the multitasking offered on the iOS4. Will the guys who make apps come out with a way and create a jailbreak app with which you can multitask just like the way you can on the iPod Touch 3G and iPhone 3GS?
    By that I mean, double pressing the home button, and the app icons appear at the bottom of the screen.

    Thanks,
    iPodholic

    I would if I knew how to. I'm still a junior jailbroken user. I've had an iPod only since December and a jailbroken one only since April

    You have to SSH inot your iPod then find the N1XXX.plist and change the false to turn and respring. That's all I know.

    Oh. And that will enable multitasking just like the 3GS and iPod Touch 3G? Great!

    And do you know anyone who has tried and succeeded in doing this on a 2G?

    MuscleNerd updated redsn0w to jailbreak the iPod touch 2G. I believe he had backgrounds and multitasking switched on automatically but recently updated it so you had a choice.
