    I've had an iPod Touch 1G for about 4 months now. I am currently at firmware 2.1 and am not sure whether to jailbreak or not. I was wondering if I should or not, but am afraid to jailbreak and lose my warranty, because if you've seen before, I posted on the forums asking about my iPod Touch which had gotten screwed up un-jailbroken. Now, I'm not sure whether to jailbreak or not.

    Can anyone please convince me to jailbreak? Or not? Because I really want to get new apps from Cydia and Installer, rather than buying them from iTunes. But I'm also afraid of screwing up my iPod Touch and not being able to return/replace if if my iPod Touch gets screwed up again.

    its like installer, but at the minute it has more support and more repos, was made by saurik, he also made winterboard (SMB replacement) and a tonne of other apps, installer is avalible on 2.1 but from what i remember its still a beta, and its not that stable, most guys now are developing for 2.x anyway so its better to keep upto date really, only thing is legally you have to pay for the 2.x firmware, but there are places where you can get it whithout doing so, i cant go into that though as its against the rules
