    I have no experience with jailbreaking, and google has brought me straight here.

    I have a 2G iTouch with 2.2.1 firmware, MB model.

    Which is the best method to jailbreak my iTouch? I've heard about tethered vs untethered etc., not sure about the difference. Is it that one of them I cannot turn off the iTouch? What are the pros/cons or best choice?

    Also, after I jailbreak my iTouch, what then?

    What is this Cydia thing I see packaged with some of the jailbreaking software?

    Thanks in advance for any help offered, it is definitely appreciated!

    first of all, before you do anything, I would highyl recomend that you upgrade tothe newest firmware on iTunes which is 3.1.3 and then you can message me on here and I will try to help you out as much as possible.

    I was going to, but I read on some message boards and that blackra1n site that 3.1.3 can't be jailbroken yet, or is that for iPhones only?

    Actually, before I buy it, is purchasing the only way to obtain the new fw?

    what do you mean? 3rd Gens come with 3.x firmware already, and you dont pay if for example it comes with 3.1.2 and you upgrade to 3.1.3. the only way you would have to pay for firmware was if you had a 2nd Gen ipod touch with 2.2.1 and you wanted 3.1.3, then you would have to pay.
