what is the difference of the sdk and getting the jailbreak?
Wow dude you need to read up on your stuff before posting. Sdk will come from apple. Jailbreak is a 3rd party resource which uses certain exploits in the iPod touch/iPhone firmware to run its apps.
A giant one.
- full hardware support with officially licensed 3rd party applications that have gone through testing and won't crash
- Possible plugin drivers to support hardware extensions, such as external disks, mice, etc.
- Only licensed, paying companies will be able to sign their code and have the iPod operate the applications
- Emulation will DEFINETLY not be signed seeing as they are illegal.
There ya go, in a nutshell of course.
Thanks,so when the sdk comes out,how will it be updated to the ipod touch?
It will be updated through iTunes, and you will be able to download the SDK from Apple on their site. SDK = Software Development Kit
i would assume thst you wont be sble to use a jailbroken system with sdk 3rd party apps on it as well???
I'm guessing that the third-party developers will do everything in their power to make the jailbreak work with the SDK. But that's yet to be seen...
so for example someone like me who still hasn't use the jailbreak is not sure cuz i don't really want to restore it or maybe damage,i can just wait for the sdk and if doesn't has more apps than when you jailbreak it can i still just jailbreak it?
No damage - no one has bricked their iPod Touch. If you want to wait, more power to you. Only one concern - there is a possibility (although slim) that the firmware update (which is bound to be released around the time of the SDK) locks the iPod Touch down to the point that a jailbreak won't work... You can always just wait to see what's released and make your decision about which way to go (or both) depending on the results after the SDK is released...
I am one who hasn't jailbroken and am completely fine with it, there are many web apps that are just as useful.
