    Pros- Get access to your ipod's files, and sweet apps you can only get by jailbreaking
    Cons- Can take up memory and ram

    I think that the only good thing you get from jailbreaking now is that you can have themes, and the advanced settings.

    Pros:
    Customize your iPod in a nearly infinite way.
    Themes
    Control Apps
    Advanced Settings
    The coolest apps Apple would never let you use.
    And tonnes more. (eg. Emulators, etc.)

    Cons:
    Voiding your warrenty. (but a DFU restore makes in near impossible to tell that you did, and thus, re-instated warrenty)
    Apps that might have a memory leak (takes up alot of RAM, but this can be solved in updates / or by deleting the app.)



    In all, the pros HIGHLY outway the cons.
    And ANYTHING you do (excluding a notorious sudo command through terminal) can be undone with a restore.

    Basically, do it now!! You will not regret.

    Btw, I came from the against-jailbreaking side, but I was misinformed, and people who are against jailbreak usually use scare tactics to stop you. Ignore them. It is great!
