WHAT DO I GET WHEN I JAILBREAK? Please Register or Log in to view images Here is a screenshot of the SpringBoard (also known as the Home Screen) of a jailbroken iPod touch. As you can see, custom icons have been applied, as well as a custom wallpaper and dock image. Also, there are clock and weather-forecast widgets which are live (they update themselves), and there are 5 columns of SpringBoard icons instead of just 4. There are also five icons in the dock, instead of the normal 4, with reflections below them that were added by another "widget" of sorts. The status bar has been replaced with a custom image, the "iPod" text has been changed to a custom carrier image, and the battery indicator has been replaced by a much more accurate numeric indicator. Jailbreak Apps Used in This Screenshot: WinterBoard for custom graphics and widgets, Five Column SpringBoard, Five Icon Dock, BossPrefs for the numeric battery. For those of you that want my theme, you can download it here. Please Register or Log in to view images By simply swiping the status bar from left to right, we can bring up SBSettings. This handy SpringBoard enhancement places a number of convenient toggles within easy reach, so you can switch off WiFi to save battery power, kill processes that are stealing your device's RAM, switch SSH on to transfer files to your device, or jot down a quick note. The toggles in SBSettings are user-defined, so you can create your own set easily. You can also hit the "More" button to hide SpringBoard icons, toggle the numeric battery, and control which toggles are displayed. The "Power" button brings up a dialog that lets you lock the screen (if your Lock button is broken), turn your device off, reboot, or respring into Safe Mode. You can also respring your device with a single tap on the "Respring" button. Jailbreak Apps Used In This Screenshot: SBSettings with various toggle add-ons (Fast Notes, Processes).

QuickGold is an application launcher; simply type in the name of the application you want (it uses search-as-you-type, so results start appearing from the very first letter) and then tap on the desired result. It also has a handy "Recent Applications" section (not shown here) which has shortcuts to the last six apps you launched via QuickGold. I have it set up to only search applications, but you can have it search contacts, Safari bookmarks, Safari history, web clips, and text messages as well. Jailbreak Apps Used In This Screenshot: QuickGold.

This comes in especially handy when used in conjunction with SeeqPod, as you can download mp3s straight to your device, as seen here. Jailbreak Apps Used In This Screenshot: Safari Download Plug-In. Please Register or Log in to view images Once you have downloaded music and/or videos to your device with the Safari Download Plug-In, you can play them using dTunes, an application that scans your iPod's filesystem for playable audio and/or video files. You can also use dTunes to unzip .zip files and to download *******s. Jailbreak Apps Used In This Screenshot: dTunes. Please Register or Log in to view images Categories is an application that allows you to create categories, or "folders", on your SpringBoard for easier navigation. This is my "Games" category (the green star icon on my SpringBoard; see the first screenshot), with two more categories within: App Store and Emulators. Categories reduces SpringBoard clutter and enables you to find apps easily. Jailbreak Apps Used In This Screenshot: Categories.

How about a Game Boy Color and a Game Boy Advance and an NES and an SNES and a Sega Genesis and a PlayStation all in one? Emulators for the iPod touch and iPhone allow you to do just that. In the screenshots above, I'm playing Pokemon Emerald, Pokemon Yellow, and Super Mario Bros. in iPod touch emulators. You can even play Grand Theft Auto on the PSX if you want. (NOTE: ROMs are illegal, as are the BIOS files required by some emulators.) Jailbreak Apps Used In These Screenshots: gpSPhone (top), gameboy4iphone (middle), NES (bottom).

MxTube allows you to stream YouTube videos, like the default YouTube app. However, what the default app doesn't let you do is download the videos straight to your device and watch them offline later. Jailbreak Apps Used In This Screenshot: MxTube. I realize that I may have (in fact, I probably did) miss some things, so if anyone has anything else to add, please do so (preferably with a screenshot and following the format presented above).
