    Hi,
    I am trying to figure out if it is possible to run an app, like radio app or facebook messaging, in the background while I type emails or something? I know there's backgrounder if I jailbreak my ipod, but I am afraid of jailbreaking it. I don't know if it will ruin it or i won't be able to upload things. Anyway, after the 3.0 update, is it possible to run stuff in the background? Thanks.

    No worries, JB will not damage your iPod. Use redsn0w 0.7.2.

    As wyndwarrior said it's called backgrounder. I notice that you've named it too in your post!

    Yes that's what I said. Just jailbreak and install it from Cydia.

    But I am afraid I will screw it up somehow. Does it totally change the way the ipod works, and what are the benefits of jailbreaking it? Thanks. Also - if I do jailbreak it can you run more than one app? Thanks.

    NO.

    Dont use redsn0w 0.7.1 (sorry to call you out gjauhari)..

    Well, I guess you can but dont check the box that says Install Icy, or it will mess it up.

    Heres a link to a tutorial that will hook you up. (links & everything)
