    This is probably a very common question, but I haven't been able to find many answers.

    I used Spirit to get Cydia on my ipod touch 3G 3.1.3 8GB, now what? I see all this SSH and Winterboard talk, but I don't understand any of it? what next? what do i do to get the features of a jailbroken ipod?

    Why did you jailbreak in the first place. You don't understand a thing about it. Best get started now.

    Winterboard: Allows you to theme your iPod
    SSH: Allows you to access files on your iPod and change them.

    It isn't. I haven't even SSHed my iPod yet. I've been jailbroken since Oct 2009.

    well i got my ipod customized, and i found a few apps on Cydia to get started, like categories and a game. Are there any good sources that will lead me to some games?
