I'll be honest will all you folks out there. I've had both JB and unjailbroken installations on my Ipod touch (although not on my 2.1 yet). For the earlier firmware versions, which were very feature poor, the risk/benefit ratio of jailbreaking was very much in favor of it. But now, with 2.1, including all of the improvements in the built in programs, and app store (including many useful free programs), practically speaking as a day to day user of the ipod as an mp3 player and PDA, I don't really see much advantage in JB any more. Sure, you can save $20 on stolen apps, or if you're a programmer, you can tinker, but otherwise, it seems to me that the whole JB thing has become in end in itself and is losing its practical purpose. My un-JB 2.1 works perfectly and with the free apps and a few purchased ones (for a grand total of a whopping 5 bucks), what else could I ask for? Sure, it was "neat" to SSH into my unit before, but really, folks, what the hell for? You spend endless hours of restoring and tinkering and crashing the unit, so you can save 20 bucks on apps?? Someone, give me a good reason!
