    i was just thinking that since iphonebrowser works on a non-jailbroken ipod touch (well i think it does? because im pretty sure i tried before i was jailbroken), could i put any jailbroken ipod apps onto a non-jalbroken ipod touch. i dont know, just something off cydia, and put it into the apps folder. Would anything like this work.

    A lot of people say you can, and some tried to prove it, but I don't think it's worth the risk to try it out.

    DiskAid does work with an unjailbroken iPod touch, but it only gives you access to a certain part of your iPod's filesystem. It is impossible to place apps on your iPod touch with DiskAid unless you jailbreak.

    Bottom line: no. Those websites are wrong.

    You could wrap the .app in an .ipa file and sync it with iTunes, and it would probably show up on your SpringBoard... but I'm pretty sure the app would not launch unless it was signed by Apple.

    Yeah even if you could access the fs to put the app on, one of the main points of jailbreaking is to remove the restriction to Apple-signed code... websites lie a lot
