    Ive had my touch for almost a year now. Jailbroke it when I first got it and had it that way until the release of the app store when i formatted it and went straight. I have downloaded dozens and apps and spent maybe $25 on paid apps. I Love it but still really miss emulators. Do people still jailbreak? Do I keep all my current apps I have or lose them in the process? How easy is it to get free apps? is it still like the installer thing that was used way back when?
    thanks

    Everyone still jailbreaks, if you jailbreak, you will not loose your apps, just sync with itunes to get them back after you jailbreak

    No one really used Installer now, Cydia is much better

    depends on your needs. i enjoy custom themes and some modifications so a jailbreak is usefull to me.

    since you like emulators, i guess jailbreaking would be usefull. also many people still jailbreak. i think themes is the #1 reason

    I think he was talking about getting free 3rd-party apps, not free Appstore apps.

    Either way, you should edit your post.
