    Hey, great to be here, I am Jesse. I have a question


    I saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg5FOYgs8Kk

    And thought I would jailbreak my Ipod Touch 2G (version 2.2). But I am concerned about the risks from that video.

    I hear that the video has no risks and it just adds installer and cydia to your touch. So does that mean I wont break it and I can't edit it (ie: add themes)

    Also

    1. Will I lose all my media (music, photo's, current apps, Videos) from the jailbreak above?

    2. Do I risk bricking my trouch?

    3. Will my Ipod run slower and freeze more?

    4. Can I still run my touch in Itunes? And do everything as if it were not jailbroken? (like will Apple delete the apps on it?)

    5. Should I follow the video and do it?

    3. it may run a lil slower someone with a 2g will have to confirm that

    see, I am just interested in getting the applications on there to get free stuff. When you do that there is no risk right? And is there a video for that?
