    Im getting a 32gb 1st Gen Touch tomorrow, its gonna be my first 'pod of any kind so i have a few questions.

    1) If i upgrade to the latest firmware and jailbreak it, can i still use apps from the apple app store? If not, is it worth jailbreaking?

    2) Could anyone give me a link to a total guide on how to jailbreak, and how to get new apps?

    3) What are the pros/cons to jailbreaking?

    Thanks for all your help in advance!

    1) Yes. Yes.
    2) Use Google.
    3) Pros: Total control of your iPod. Drives Steve Jobs crazy. Show off to your friends.
    Cons: Voids the warranty. You'll be addicted to your iPod.

    You will need Quickpwn or PwnageTool depending on if you use a mac or pc. It's a very easy process and it walks you through it. Apps won't be a problem, you get them from the App Store as normal and you can use Apps from Cydia.

    Soul Of iTouch, why is being addicted to your 'Pod a bad thing? =P
    Im not worried about the warranty, if anything goes wrong hopefully i can restore it, as i read here that short from actually hitting it with a brick its near impossible to brick it

    Why don't you get a 2nd gen and wait for the jailbreak?
