    after apple has released a whole bunch of apps, many that are free, is jailbreaking still worth it. the app i want to use most is for IM and to send sms to phones. i know apple has the AIM app but i heard it wasnt too good. are apollo and iSMS really good apps? or i could i get along without having to jailbreak?

    You could get along without a jailbreak, but remember many apps are prohibited by Apple while some are crippled (TTR and MxTube for instance)

    With Jailbreak there is file access (SSH), Themes, ability to download files/songs (iSlsk), and more.

    Doesn't have access to your music library.

    @EMroy: I haven't used it but many have said it's a great app. Google AIM app and you should see more info on it.

    jailbreaking is definitely still worth it imo. more and more apps are being ported and its all starting to take place again

    Agreed. I totally love customizing my iPod and love the iSlsk. I haven't jailbroken my iPod yet but I will once Installer is available for 2.0.

    By the way, I haven't tried Cydia at all so I don't know if there are any big differences with Installer. Does it have all applications as Installer does?
