    I've just jailbroken my little brothers iPod Touch 16gb (1.1.4)
    I'm looking to password protect installer.app and customise poof etc
    So I guess if possible I could password protect a catagorize folder...
    I aim to do this so that my brother wont mess too much with his ipod and risk bricking it while i'm out of the country (which i am a lot) as he is curious like that, but doesn't know what he's doing.
    Anyone got any suggestions or relevent apps?

    make sure u hide any launcher or finder as well so he cant access the apps from there

    just had the same thought myself, have it working fine on mine, but for some reason on my brothers it workes fine until i actually try hide the apps... nothing changes, calculator doesn't even get hidden, on mine i've even been able to change the name of hidepod to Calc...
    For some unknown reason following the exact same steps on my brothers hasn't worked...

    The best solution is to buy him an iPod

    I'm lost as to at which point an iPod Touch is not an iPod...

    I'm pretty sure chucky means buy him a standard iPod. You know...the ones with clickwheels.
