    I'm new to this jailbreaking business. I have no idea how to do it, i just heard about it minutes ago, that's when i found this forum..
    I just got a 8g Itouch for my b-day.

    Thought it'll be awesome if i can add some games and stuff for free.

    But if i jailbreak it, and it gets messed up, my warranty/insurance wouldn't work anymore, since i jailbreak it? (One of the main reasons i'm scared to do it, since i just got it and it cost my brother $400).
    also heard the battery dies way faster?

    How exactly do i jailbreak it?..
    I've been seeing alot of ways on how to do it, which makes everything more confusing.
    Upgrading really means Downgrading?.. which version is the best?..

    Does having a Windows or Mac matter?..
    I have Windows..
    My itunes says Version: 1.1.3 (With Software Upgrade) also gives me an option to update to 1.1.4...

    But yea, im still clueless about all this, can someone tell me if it's worth jailbreaking it and explain how exactly to do it?


    Edit: Thank you all!!!
    My itouch is officially jailbroken!!!
    SWEEETTTTT!!!!
    i have got scetches, raging thunger, labyrith..
    How do i get those nintendo, playstation, gameboy games???...

    ok...if your ipod gets messed up you just restore it and voila ...warranty is still there
    as with the battery dying WAY faster...not true since the ipod is underclocked so less power and everything...apps don't overheat the ipod
    jailbreak it..you won't regret it

    Wen you jailbreak you get an installer app and you open that to download apps make sure wen you get installer go to the sources category and install community sources then go down to the system category and install bsd subsystem and search on her how to use winscp so that you can ssh( install stuff manuallywithout installer) i hope i helped! If i did you can rep me ill tell you how to rep right now ok wen someone posts look at the bottom left of there post there is an ipod that has lights or apps on or off ( on means your online) and next to it is the rep button click it to rep people you can give positive or negative rep i hope i really helped! I did this all on my ipod!
