    "Jailbreak" refers to when you add unofficial third party applications to your iPod touch. Jailbreaking voids your warranty with Apple, although with a simple restore Apple can usually not detect jailbreaking. Whether or not jailbreaking is illegal is a highly controversial question

    Actually, Jailbreak is gaining full Read and Write access to the file system on your device through privilege escalation. There more than one way to install Unofficial 3rd Party apps on your device. One such way is with Xcode and a signed app. A la Podcaster.

    Blah blah, Void Warranty, isn't illegal. Jailbreaking your device allows little tweaks, theming, Jailbreak apps. All of which I find quite unnecessary ever since firmware 2.1 and the App Store and it's 4000+ Apps. So which, I don't jailbreak. Though you could find fun in it I guess.
