    Hey!
    I'm going to be buying an 8GB ipod touch this week while I'm in NY. Where I'll be staying I'll only have access to a mac computer so I thought I'd keep the jailbreak process simple by downgrading if necessary and jailbreaking to 1.1.1 and download some of the desired apps such as maps, iphyscs, summerboard, gpSPhone, labyrinth and more. In 3 weeks when I'm back at home with my Vista PC I thought I'd JB to 1.1.3

    Now with such a simple 1.1.3 JB available I'm tempted to try that out but I'm concerned with app compatibility issues. Would those apps and others operate properly on a jailbroken 1.1.3 ipod? Would I need to use the mac to get these to work? (besides the downgrading part)

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, most of the time, When you download something incompatible, your iPod crashes, not in a bad way, but you cannot control it for about 10 seconds then it will go back to the home screen.

    I recommend you downloading the app pack with ipodtouchmaster05's repository. You don't understand what I am saying but keep searching the forums and read the latest stickies for help.

    To see the benefits of jailbreaking, I will show you the apps that make jailbreaking very good:

    Customize - Change the general look of your iPod
    Summerboard - Add themes and use them right from your iPod
    Mobilechat and apollo - great IM apps, they don't work in 1.1.3 right now.
    iPhone app pack - have notes, stocks, weather, mail, and maps, move icons as well.

    Pocket Guitar - One of the best apps, Play a guitar like real

    http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1071016/ipod_touch_guitar/

    Lockbox - Password safe
    Books - read books and even download them from installer
    MacCalc -A scientific Calculator
    Flashlight-duh
    VNSea - A truly amazing application, fun to play with, control your computer (congratulations you have a mac) right from your iPod

    OpenSSH - Basically, you can see the files and edit them from your computer with wireless connection.
    Convert - currency, kitchen, clothing, time, area, volume, length
    LEDBanner - self explanatory
    iPhysics - too addictive
    SysInfo - Monitor your iPod
    iRadio - radio
    BossPrefs-I suggest you dont use Services
    gpsPhone -gameboy advance
    nes- nintendo entertainment system
    psxforall-playstation
    snes-super nintendo entertainment system
    todolist-to do list? get it?
    Rainbowlight - I don't know who made this but it is fun to have
    MobileFinder- Finder in your iPod? wtf h4x
    Towers of hanoi- you don't know what you are missing
    BSD-Subsystem-Just install it

    Woah! Thanks man! I appreciate really appreciate your posts!

    I have been doing a lot of research so I do have the general idea of how to jailbreak and what apps to aquire (although now I know even more thanks to your list

    As for what I'll do, I really don't want things to be long and complicated so I might just stick to a laikbroken 1.1.1 for the two weeks I'm in NY. The apps I want should work on it. When I'm back home I'll start all over and JB into 1.1.3, at which point the FW will hopefully be more stable!
