    1, it depents on what firmware you'r on.

    2, yes!

    3, yes, i use "files" from Appstore =D

    4, no, you can get viruses but you just restore if that happens.

    5, idk

    6, no, it depents on what apps you want, if you want to have backgrounds on your homescreen you'll need to jailbreak...

    4. If you jailbreak you can get a free firewall application I think it is called ( iFirewall or Firewall Ip) <-- one of those apps is a paid one I just get them confused.

    5. Idk for sure I have SBsettings for my iTouch 2g and I am jailbroken and it says I can use bluetooth Idk if its a setting that is just added to be used on the iPhone or not. So far thats a yes lol sorry for stupid long reply about it.


    Jailbreaking is worth it. before I did all I did was get free apps and it was fun but jailbreaking gives you a lot more options.

    if you jailbreak use blackra1n. its the easiest and since you have an iTouch 2g it will work perfectly and you won't have to keep booting it up or w/e

    1) You don't HAVE to, but it would be better to have the latest update on your ipod. To Do this Just select your device in iTunes when you insert you device, then just click 'update"

    2) Yes! There's ALOT of Free Apps in the App Store & You don't have to be jailbroken! Just select the "App Store" App on your ipod touch, ( be sure to be connected to wifi or 3G connection)

    3)Yes You Can! all through iTunes!

    4)No Viruses can attack your ipod, probably only if you jailbreak.. if anything would get a virus while surfing the net it would be the computer, u are using the router for

    5)Of Course! Just Turn it on in the "Settings" App on you ipod
