    What is involved in doing this and can someone point me in the right direction? What are the advantages and disadvantages of doing this. The only time I have ran into an issue is with flash, but other than that no issues at all. What will jailbreaking my ipod allow me to do?

    Thanks.

    It allows you to theme you device. Run 3rd party apps, customize and edit your system files. Loads more.

    What Model is your iPod?
    Find your model by going to Settings, General > About. Scroll down.
    Give the first two letters of the model.

    You can either go for Tethered (Have to plug in to a computer every time you turn on your iPod)
    Or wait for untethered (you don't)

    Untethered should be coming very soon. head here for more info.

    Tethered is much more complicated and requires 3.1.2. shsh blobs.

    It is actually a 3g not a 2g. So if I never turned off my ipod then it would not matter which one correct? Also could I downgrade my software to a lower one? If I decided to do tethered, can you point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    When did you get your 2g? (btw, no difference between 3g and 2g)

    Did it come with 4.0?
