    well what does jailbreak do? what are the positives to it? how is it better then just a regular ipod touch? i probably will never bother to jailbreak but if it has a lot of positives, then maybe il think about it.

    you can install 3rd party apps.

    you'll have cydia and installer.

    but it's less stable.

    Apple does not allow 3rd party apps because they don't comply with Apple's rules. 3rd party apps include emulators, ports, replacements for built-in apps, theming tools, etc.
    They really add a lot to the iPod touch.
