    Hey, I'm new and I've heard of the new jailbreak (redsn0w)
    I have a ipod touch 2g...
    So my question is when I jailbreak it, will my ipod crash/freeze a lot more?
    And will there be any other problems...?
    EDIT*
    Big Thanks for all your replies

    if you use smth like WinterBoard, it can make things a bit slower since it has to load it's stuff. other than that, nothing really

    ehhh no. it won't really crash or freeze at least it shouldn't. i mean everything is possible due to the new nature of redsn0w, but it shouldn't. honestly, there really aren't too many things to worry about.

    EDIT: what chronic said.. he beat me to it...

    yea, dont use cracked apps. It'll slow the system down a lot and it will crash alot.

    Thanks...I was just about to start a thread about this very topic. Jailbreaking sounds nice to me, but not at the expense of stability. I can't stand devices, computers, etc. that crash and lock up constantly. For me it would not be worth it.

    As it stands now, I will probably wait a week or so after the jb is released to see what others are experiencing.

    Oh, so cracked apps(I.E, like Pac-Man or something) would be BAD to get?

    I'm a n00b to this whole jailbreaking thing and like many cannot wait to jailbreak my 2G. I've been fascinated with this since before I got it and the time's finally nearing, i'm excited!
