    Hello everyone! I have never owned an ipod before but have always wanted one. I finally decided to buy the ipod touch g2 32gb. I havent gotten it yet because I just ordered it from Apple yesterday.

    I have been reading a ton about jailbreaking, but am still a little fuzzy about what it really does for the ipod touch. Could someone give me the pros and cons of doing it and what the risks are? Thanks for any help!

    it gives you freedom

    pros:
    -you can theme your ipod
    -install applications apple wont let into the appstore
    -app store apps for free (but were not allowed to talk about that here so shhh)


    cons:
    -if you do something stupid you can mess up your ipod and you'll have to restore
    -it takes some time and effort

    Unfortunately there is not a jailbreak out for 2G iPod Touch.
    Pros: Everything

    you can get themes and some cool stuff for your ipod touch.

    Cons: i personally dont think there are any. It is almost impossible to brick your ipod (jailbreaking at least)

    Correct me if im wrong bros/sis's

    Thanks! I am not worried about taking the time to do it, I just want to make sure I cant completely kill it if I mess up or something like that.
