    I bought an iPod Touch 32 gb and don't know much about it. I can enter music, photos and movies and add contacts and notes and stuff like that but I am sure there is more that this thing can do. I have a few questions.
    What is the advantage to jailbreaking the Touch?
    Can I load games without jailbreaking it?
    Is jailbreaking safe?
    Can I get a good free video converter. I am using Any Video Converter and it is pretty good but the picture quality sometimes isn't too good.
    Can I load software without a WiFi connection? I am working in Haiti in a remote area and there are no Wifi connections here.
    Thanks for helping this old fart out, I do appreciate it.

    The advantage og jailbreaking is that you can have 3rd party apps(app not made by apple)

    You can only use web apps whit out jailbreaking, you can finde some bad games, but they are not worth playing

    Most jailbreaking methods are safe

    I use Videora iPod Converter and are happy whit it(google it)

    Do you mean open an app? If you do, yes you can open apps whit out WiFi but not web apps

    It lets you have things that a non jailbroken Ipod wont
    Things like Themes,Games,Ebook reader, and other handy apps.
    There are alots of online games but come this June Apple is Letting other dev use a SDK and that will let them make games but for a small fee and you may buy the ones you wish.
    It very safe, it hard to brick a Ipod and even if you do Apple give you a free replacement Ipod if you live by a apple store.
    I take it your on windows. There are a few.
    I use Super

    If the app doesnt need wifi then you can load it. But alot of them are using Wifi.A sdie from the games.

    you can mess up your iPod, but it is unlikely that you will with the new jailbreaking methods.

    You can "load" an app if you mean opening it. Most don't use wifi.

    If you mean downloading apps, you can usually find them somewhere online and download them from the internet, then use something like Total Commander to transfer them over to your iPod touch. Installer accesses repos (repositories) of applications through wifi, so if you don't have wifi you will need to install apps manually through the computer.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I will wait until June. I don't have access to Wifi as I work in a remote town in Haiti and would hate to brick it and not be able to use it. It is one of the few diversions I have here. I am downloading the Super program now, I think it will take a while but I can wait.

    There is no possible way to BRICK your iPod Touch, unless you are flashing the bootloader (with WinPWN/PWNageTool). The worst you will have to do is restore it. I recommend you jailbreak your iPod Touch and load applications on it with iBrickr (since you dont have WiFi).
    Hope I helped!
