    Yes, these questions are about hiding pictures. Please no spam, I just want answers.

    1) Is there a good app substitute for 2.0.x ipods for HidePod?
    2) Is there a good app substitute for 2.0.x ipods for touchroll?
    3) If there is no equivalent to touchroll, how may I get the camera roll folder onto my jailbroken 2.0.x iTouch?

    Basically, how can I easily hide images on my iTouch from those who are not meant to see them.

    I'd prefer a method in which I don't have to re-hide/re-switch to keep the images safe (ex. using something like touchroll and swapcameraroll.app to hide/unhide a secondary camera roll folder to see the hidden files).

    All help is appreciated.

    +rep / thanks (whichever one this site uses) to anyone who gives a straightforward answer.

    Please be mature with your responses.

    Thank you!

    EDIT: I have firmware 2.1.0 to be specific.

    Sorry for the bump- I'm just surprised that the forums don't seem as active as they used to be oO.

    Picture Safe 2 in the app store looks good. $1.99
    or there's Video Safe (protects photos and videos. $3.99
    Basically just search "Hide photos" in the app store and there's a bunch to choose from

    Techninja, I understand completely, I don't want to harm the innocent either.

    First I suggest you get SBSettings if you don't already have it from Cydia.

    Second, use SBSettings to hide your Photos.app from your iPod.

    Third, install QuickGold. With a second click of the Home button use QuickGold to search for the Photos App and you'll never have to worry about others accidentally viewing your photos.

    The other option is to Password protect photos with something like the Lockdown application.

    Is this what you were looking for?

    thejester: Ok, I'll take a look into some of these. Thanks!

    ThePickler: I've done somethings similar, before; however, it would be nice to still allow people see the images that I'd like them to see.

    I'll give these both a try and get back to you guys in a sec. Thanks so much!
