    I just got an iTouch and I've been reading alot of cool things about jailbreaking but I also read alot of failed and sad stories about it. I'm a little afraid that I might crash my new $400 investment.

    I also read somewhere that there might be some official third party applications coming out soon because apple has just released SDK to others. So, should I wait or should I jailbreak now?

    Also, do I need .Net Framework 3.0 for jailbreaking?

    thanks

    Give it a go. There are ways to recover your bricked iPod touch and make it seem like you never jailbroke it if you ever need to send it in to Apple.

    The SDK is supposed to be released in Feb of 08.

    There's been a lot of talk here about this, even today. I was in the same position as you. I bought the Touch with the explicit intent on jailbreaking it but I wasn't satisfied with the results I was seeing from posts. There was a lot of conflict about what works and what doesn't.

    Then I saw Touchfree as an option and it was a very safe, clean break and it worked perfectly. I can't give the author enough applause and credit for doing a great job.

    I went ahead and used it and now I'm so happy I did. No worry. No problems. I have the Touch I wanted.

    You can read what has been said here:

    As for 3rd Party Apps coming from Apple... keep this in mind. From what I have read this will be an "approved" process. If you can pass Apple's muster you'll get on the approved list. You can be assured that Apple will only allow applications that are of their benefit or are, at best, neutral. They won't allow anything to be "approved" that go against anything they don't want the device to do.

    If you go back to the announcement it says

    So, that indicates there will be a method you have to overcome before your application is approved for use. There could be many things that Apple doesn't want done with the iPhone or Touch. They've caved to pressure about 3rd Party Applications but you can be sure they'll only let it go to a defined limit.

    I bought my touch not intending to jailbreak, but then ijailbreak for the the mac came out and well changed my mind. It went really smooth, no complaints.

    Not posted from my iPod Touch.
