    **Summerboard has been updated to 3.0a12, look for it in Installer.

    1) Jailbreak kills the old tff exloit method of Jailbreaking.
    2) If you were to upgrade now, it seems like your third party apps would stll be on the iPod, just inaccessable. It is advisable to back your apps an settings up onto your computer before upgrading.
    3) As of right now, 1.1.2 is only available through iTunes if you restore your iPod. The Check For Upgrades button does not find it.
    4) Jailbreak is completed, Jailbreaking software coming soon.
    --the bulk of the waiting was the fact that the developers of the new JailBreak method needed address the fact that Apple made major changes to the SpringBoard and lockdownd.


    *MacJailbreak Warning: The step by step instructions for the Mac JailBreak has been posted. It is not advisable to do this yet unless:
    a) You were comfortable, and had success, with the 74 step 1.1.1 JailBreak.
    b) You don't mind the limited functionality of only being able to use one page of apps. Yes, there are ways around that, but it is still recommended that you wait.

    What if you upgrade before the JailBreak is ready?

    1) You'll be fine. Just wait for the JailBreak software and run it. You'll be two steps ahead of everybody else.

    2) No, you will not be able to use any of your third party
    apps until JailBeak is released.
    3) If it seems like the iPod is running faster, it probably is. It seems like Apple used different compiler options and optimizations while creating this new firmware.
