Hello, Firstly please excuse me for my arrogance on the fact, that there is probably a post on this. But here we go; I'm going to be getting a 8GB iPod Touch for my birthday in two weeks, so I started doing some research, and I found out about Jailbreaking. I have read a fair amount on it - and have watched a few videos on the subject. But I feel I would get more of an answer. So In my Noobish appeal I have several questions that I would like answered if Possible. So here we go; 1) What is this Firm wire 1.1..... I keep on hearing about, and how does it effect the Ipod? 2) Can the Ipod still do all its normal functions even when it is Jail Broken (ie. Access iTunes)? 3) How do the patches on the iPod effect the jail breaking? 4) Will the Apps that Jail Breaking offers, ever be on the official Ipod site (Obviously not the Rom ones, but any others)? 5) What is the safest and easiest way to Jail break? 6) And lastly, is the Itunes restore thing, completely reliable? --- Thank you for any advance answers.
