    Hello,

    I bought today an iPod Touch 8GB which runs firmware version 2.2.1 now I tried running this ipod with iPodWizard (www.getipodwizard.com) and unfortunately found out it isnt supported. I read on the forums that they haven't "cracked" the firmware on it.

    Now that makes me wonder, what is the difference between "cracking" and "jailbreaking" the firmware?

    If I jailbreak it can I edit the same things that iPodWizard would allow me to edit or what? I am confused here.

    What is this ipodwizard garbage? Jailbreaking allows you to customize most of the aspects on the ipod touch own boot logo customized sounds you name you can do it on the ipod. Cracking is illegal and you cannot discuss it on this forum.
