    DO NOT USE THE WHOLE "C" WORD!!! (use stars)


    Before I get bombarded with "WE DONT CARE GTFO," I would like to say this: please read the whole thing and don't comment if you don't care. I am not meaning to directly attack new 2G users (a lot of them are not in this category). this is directed toward 2g cr***ers. I just want to know your opinion on my opinion (do you think I'm wrong, right, etc.).

    I don't own an iPod touch or iPhone, but it makes me happy to see a new jailbreak come out. However, with the 2g, its really a bittersweet feeling.
    I don't think many 2g owners understand what a jailbreak is for. Here is a typical new 2g owner conversation (im not directing this at anyone who knows about what to jailbreak for and has owned a jb iPod touch before)

    Me: Aww sweet you got a 2g!!!??!
    2Gowner: Duh!!!
    Me: what apps do you have on it??
    2Gowner:Well just a bunch of crappy ones, im waiting for the jailbreak to get good ones.

    ): You know thats illegal, right?? (no reply, continuing conversation) Have any favorites for winterboard?
    2gowner: wtf is winterboard??
    Me: How about the flash plugin... Any jailbroken apps in mind (lists cool cydia apps)???
    2gowner: Jailbreak can make you have flash??



    I know i didn't explain that quite right, but it goes on and on. point here is, the only reason many new 2g users want a jailbreak is for c****ed apps. They think everyone has worked so hard to crack the device just so they can use c*****ed apps!!!! Then there is a small amount, im guessing about 1/3 of 2g owners(most of which have 1G experience), who want the jailbreak for the right reason, which is customization of the firmware, hardware, and apps and freedom from Apple's "jail".

    Don't get me wrong, i want the 2g jailbreak, but i hope there is no way for people to c****ed apps for it. f*** c****ers.

    I'm definitely not one of these people and I'm sure most of these people on these forums are against cracked apps. I wouldn't say EVERY new 2G user is jailbreaking only for cracked apps because that's like saying every 1G iPod Touch users only want cracked games/apps.

    Thanks for generalizing people.

    I'm a first time iPod Touch user with 2g and I am not going to use it for cracked apps. I'm planning to get Winterboard, PSX Emulator (Using iso I created from my CDs), Backgrounder, and that one thingy where you can download mp3 files.

    I know there will always be a way, but its stll wrong, and this is a good time to help eliminate it/slow it down for 2G users.

    I find this post pretty ridiculous but I do agree with the general point behind this.

    like i said, a lot of first timers, i just think we should inform them that jailbreaking should be used for good.
