    im an ipod 2g jailbroken user, what does the new 3.0 OS hold in store for me, will i have to re jailbreake?
    will it get rid of all my jailbroken stuff?
    is it worth the effort of upgrading and jailbreaking again?
    can i get this update for free?

    and now for one completely unrelated

    how do i add themes to my ipod that completely change how i browse through stuff?

    if anyone could help it would be well appreciated.

    Here are some threads that will help you out:

    If you upgrade, yes, you will have to rejailbreak with the dev team. It will get rid of your current jailbreak.

    If you choose to upgrade you may not need to jailbreak again (that is if you can live without themes).

    It is only free for iPhone owners.

    probably never. The 2.x.x frimwares still costs money for those who havent upgraded yet.

    the beta is already jailbrakeable but the dev team hasn't released anything yet

    june

    You're not allowed to get updates it increase functionality (like 3.0 or 2.0) without a price because the iPod touch is sold as a "complete product", meaning that all the features should come included.

    This stops people from selling intentionally sandboxed devices and then releasing huge updates for free to bring their stocks up.

    And, right now it costs $99 to get a dev account, which you need in order to get 3.0.

    If you buy one, and choose to upgrade, you will lose your jailbreak and you will be unable to jailbreak it before the summer, unless jfb pulls through with a dirty hack hen he finds RootFS's key. The jailbreak from the dev team will not be released for the 3.0 betas, but it will be released in June, most likely along with the firmware or slightly after.

    As of now, as a dev with the beta, I'd say the firmware is good looking overall, with a few bugs here and there. Spotlight is cool, and landscape notes, SMS, and mail is awesome. The new API's should be interesting in new apps for 3.0, and I'm looking forward to June to get some of them.

    iPod doesn't get too much (I have it on both my devices), but it's still good to be up to date and the new apps should also be a great update for 1st gens too.

    i read of some other ways but they confused me, do you think anyone would be releasing a video tutorial on how to do this?

    and are you saying that there's a way to update without loosing all your jailbreak files?
