    I've finally manage to Jailbrake my iPod! Only took my about 6 hours... <--- NOOB!

    Now what do I do? Where do I get apps and games and stuff, and how do I install them? I have Cydia on my iPod, but I have no clue how to use it. Where can I read up on this stuff?

    I don't have WiFi at home so I can't access anything through my iPod.

    Ok. Open Cydia. go to The home tab, and scroll to Open SSH instalation, and Install it. Then, go to Sections, and download away. You should get Winterboard, Customize, and NES, Bossprefs, etc.

    Problem is; I don't have WiFi at home. Is there anyway to download stuff manually and put on the pod using the computer?

    You can only do that by using the App Store on your computer, then syncing to your iPod.

    For example; if I wanna put a Playstation emulator or a NES emulator on my iPod, how do I download and get it into my iPod?

    What firmware are you on? Go to Settings, About, And, it should be a 3 or 2 digit number, like 1.1.4, or 1.1.2, or 2.0. Which one are you on. If you're on 2.0, you can't get Playstation, and gamboy, but you can get NES.

    I'm on 2.0. Is PSX and Gameboy still just for 1.1.4? Is that something that will be updated?
    Are there any guides out there on how to install stuff? I really don't have a clue since I just jailbroke today.

    The applications for GBA and PSX roms are only for 1.1.4 and below. You need to downgrade to get them or you can just wait for them to be ported. Once on 1.1.4 you download the application from installer once you have downloaded bsd subsystem and Open SSh. You then search for ROMs in google and put them into the folder the applications tells you too via SSH. You then change the preferences to 755 and then your done.
