    Cydia, Icy and Rock are all installers. In theory, each can do what the others can do. Just stick with Cydia for the time being - it's proven.

    Aside from WinterBoard, try out (just off the top of my head):

    -Categories
    -Five Icon Dock
    -Five Column SpringBoard
    -Five Rows
    -SpringJumps
    -iBlank
    -BlankNull
    -OpenSSH
    -SBSettings
    -BossPaper
    -FontSwap
    -iFile
    -MobileTerminal
    -MakeItMine
    -MobileMusicPlayer Flip Three
    -LiveClock
    -WeatherIcon
    -Various Themes (including Landscaped themes and Delnoch themes)

    Now that you're jailbroken, it's honestly "experiment time". You can peruse the various sub-forums to see screenshots of what people have done with their iPods (and they usually include a list of what they used to make their setup) but what works for them, might not work for you or be pleasing to your eye.

    .mp4 movies have never needed a jailbreak to play. You can sync them through iTunes, for that matter.

    You need a converter. I think the free one someone made that was floating around here was called iPodME. If I can find a link, I'll edit my post.

    EDIT: wow, there's a version 2 now! I still have 1.1 lol. Anyways, go here.

    It converts video files to mp4s that you can just add to your itunes library and sync to your ipod. I thought it worked with dvds too, but im not sure. You may need another program for getting the video off of dvds. although you may be able to browse the dvd and use it's video file for the input.

    All the packages I listed above are available through Cydia. Open up Cydia and hit the "Search" icon in the lower-right corner.

    As for converting DVD's you own to the iPod Touch size/format, I use DVD43 + HandBrake (WinXP). I haven't tried iPodME that RedrumsSam suggested, so no opinion there.

    And for customizing your iPod - WinterBoard is really the only thing you need to get started. Download some themes, apply through WB. The Landscaped/Delnoch themes are the ones that require some setup before you actually apply the theme. That's where the other packages come into play - iBlank, BlankNull, Categories, SpringJumps, etc.

    Head over to the Customization/Theme forums and have a look around. Tons of info/screenshots there to help you along with customizing your iPod.

    The only mods/apps I recommend are:
    • SBSettings
    • MultiIconMover
    • OpenSSH
    • GV Mobile (if you need it)
    • MobileTerminal (not working on 3.1.x yet)
