    I just got an iPod touch and am in the process of installing 3.0 firmware. I really want to install themes but I don't want to jailbreak my iPod. So is there anyway I can put themes onto my iPod without jailbreaking?

    Thanks

    nope. Jailbreak, install WinterBoard and you're good to go. You have to jailbreak to get themes.

    why dont you want to jailbreak it? i think its way better to jailbreak. you can do the same thing on a jailbroken ipod plus more than an unjailbroken ipod.

    Why don't you want to jailbreak? It takes like two minutes.

    I use to own the first iPod touch and I jail broke it myself but it was always crashing and I had to restore my iPod several times. When you say "more" what do you mean? Can I get more games? Do I lose my current music?

    only if you do a full restore

    i think on redsn0w you don't have to restore to jailbreak

    and ya i agree with the other guys...jailbroken ipods are way awesome.

    I see you have 2.2 firmware which I also currently have also. What is redsn0w? If I do jailbreak do I still have to update sources and such?

    honestly i've never used redsn0w...i've researched it and it seems pretty good.

    i used quickPWN 2.2.5-2 to jailbreak my ipod touch on 2.2 but then again i have a 1st gen ipod ...you might be better off getting 2.2.1 firmware if you have a 2nd gen ipod

    pm me if you have questions/problems

    redsn0w is the tool you jailbreak with...
    what do you mean by updating sources?

    also you cant lose your music because you can just resync with itunes...
    you get third party apps with jailbreaking, huge plus

    Last time when i jailbroke my iPod touch I didn't have a wide choice of apps to download and people told me I needed to update/refresh sources. Not sure what that meant.
