    nice, enjoy.

    just remember, if the battery dies, or u turn it off fully. when u turn it on, it will show the "connect to itunes screen"

    when u connect it to itunes, itunes will tell u to restore. DONT DO THAT.

    instead, ignore itunes

    run blackra1n and "make it rain" again.

    u dont have to reinstall anything, everything will still be there when blackra1n restarts ur ipod and turns it on.

    So what is it doing? does it re-jailbreak or something else?

    What does jailbreaking do?
    Allows you to get apps you cannot get in the app store.

    Is it worth it?
    Oh yeah!

    Is it reversible?
    Yes it is, just restore to the original firmware.

    What can you do with a jailbreaked ipod?
    Alot of things; Themes, Mods, emulators, i am not going to say the next thing because it is against the rules.

    What does a tethered jailbreak mean?
    Tethered jailbreak means that you have to reapply blackra1n when it the ipod it turned off. You do not lose your apps or anything. It is just like a regular reboot if you do not have a jailbroken ipod.

    Can I jailbreak my new iPod Touch 3rd Generation with 3.12
    firmware?
    That is the latest version, so yes, use blackra1n for 3.1.2.

    Shouls I jailbreak my itouch?
    Best thing you will ever do for your ipod.

    What are the risks?
    There are no serious risks, unless you delete important files. If anything goes wrong, just put it in DFU mode and try running blackra1n again, or restore. How do I know? I had a 2G ipod since last christmas til my bro lost his and i sold it to him, cuz i wanted more memory so i got the 3G.

    How do I jailbreaak?
    Download blackra1n, when it has finished downloading, i recommend you put it in your C: Drive, run it, turn your iPod on, MAKE SURE ITUNES IS CLOSED!! Then hit "make it ra1n" and voila. If iTunes opens up after that, it's ok.

    Will I loose my current apps/games/music/videos/settings?
    I suggest you do a backup before you jailbreak. If you are restoring and you DO NOT backup, then yes you will, if you are reapplying blackra1n, no you will not.

    Should I use windows or mac to jailbreak?
    blackra1n is available for both.

    Do I need to use the computer that is synced with my touch?
    Huh? You can use any computer as long as it has USB 2.0, and your ipod can be recognized by the computer.

    I am tired of these , "what is the jailbreak?" "is it worth it?" threads

    If you don't even know what jailbreak is, why do want to jailbreak anyways?

    But yeah the jailbreak community is wonderful, a little research wouldn't hurt you. you know could search around the forums or even google this basic stuff
