    So I'm buying an iPod touch tomorrow, and I'm going to install the jailbreak.

    I heard there were some problems on Safari when web browsing, that it doesn't support certain formats like Flash and some others.

    Will I have any problems with Vbulletin when browsing? 95% of the sites I frequent are Vbulletin forums.

    Please let me know, this basically makes or breaks my purchase tomrorow.

    I don't know if it has vbulletin problems, but i don't think it does.
    NO flash though, it's not supposed to be there, and there is no mod for flash.

    Well, this is a Vbulletin site, right?

    Could you browse this site on your ipod touch and post threads or replies?

    I do most of my internet browsing on the touch...
    And most of what I do on the internet is on THIS forum.
    And I dont have any problems.

    vBulletin and well as phpBB, IPB, and most others work fine. As do most sites that you would go to. As mentioned there in no flash, and embedded video does not work either. Most ppl wont notice this but if you happen to use a wi-fi network that redirects you to a log in page upon start of you browser, it will not work. There is no home page with the ipod safari, it just starts were you left it off, no matter what the networks setting is the ipod will not allow it to redirect you. Hopefully you wont need this. The browser as a whole is still very amazing, it is well worth the money we payed for the ipod.
