    ok so i heard that if you jailbreak you ipod touch 2g it will shorten the life of the ipod.


    also does running emulators and games like snes shorten the life, or hurt the ipod in any way??

    The battery will drain quicker due to winterboard themes and backgrounder but thats it.

    No and no. Besides your battery draining a little quicker nothing bad happens.

    Like Xtreme said, it probably drains the battery because of backgrounder and the colorful themes but it still wouldn't be too much drainage. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Hope that helps,

    What about jailbreaking and restoring more then once? Would that have an effect do you think?

    Well Open SSH drains your battery. Just get BossPrefs to toggle it off when you are not using it.

    From Cydia FAQ

    Q: I installed OpenSSH, but I can't figure out how to turn it off. It's eating all my battery power, and the iPhone already lasts only five minutes, so now it turns off before it even starts.

    A: OpenSSH does not use any battery power except when you are actively talking to it. It isn't even running. It is just a data structure in the mind of launchd, which is always running, OpenSSH or not. There are no good reasons to deactivate OpenSSH on your phone.
