    I would like to jailbreak my ipod touch but I keep reading about issues where your battery gets drained faster because of programs running in background
    was wondering if there were any options or way of running a jailbroken ipod without the extra strain on battery- I dont care about custom backgrounds or anything like that just want to be able to install software and use my ipod without any extra options that are not needed
    thnx in advance

    If you don't run any winterboard themes and don't use Backgrounder you really shouldn't notice a difference.

    I use winterboard themes and even still, there's hardly a difference in how quickly the battery drains. So it's definitely worth it.

    I think backgrounder and intelliscreen are the only things that will make it drain noticeably. Also SSH when ur using it.
