    Hello people,

    I just bought an Ipod Touch 8GB and like every newbie i have a few question. A quick google search proved that you guys are the best forum for Ipod Touch and the reason that i joined Ipodtouchfans!!!!

    Now to my questions, (sorry if they are stupid) its the first time i'm using an Ipod touch...

    1. If i Jail break my Ipod touch (Apple Version 2.1) , will i be able to go back to the apple's version. Just asking in case Apple releases a software version with some features that is absolutely incredible or if i want to sell my touch to a friend who wants apple firmware on it; will i be able to go back to the apple's version??

    2. If i use Quickpwn to jailbreak and if i add a lot of sources to the installer would it drastically slow down or eat up all my flash drive space (i have got the 8GB version)?

    3. How many apps will i be able to install if i have say 4GB of music on my touch? I understand it depends on the size of the apps but what i wanna know is that would i be able to install all those killer apps - the main reason one jailbreaks a itouch??

    I would really appreciate if you could answer my questions.

    Thanks a lot in advance
    Niko

    Alot of apps are only 5mb..

    1 gig = 1000mb wich is 200 apps.

    So yes pretty much

    Ok in your experience how many sources do i need to add to my Installer so that i get most of the cool apps and games and also avoid slowing down my ipod. Essentially is there like a Top Ten sources for the Ipod Touch - the must haves????

    One more thing that crossed my mind is that can i download songs from itunes store onto my computer and then later sync those to my ipod touch (jailbroken) and still not screw it up??
