    In an simplified way, it allows installation of third party applications not allowed by apple.

    Allows read/write access to filesystem, therefore allowing installation of third party applications and utilities not allowed by apple.

    That's a simplified explanation, just expanded from above post.

    I am thinking about doing a rock n roll time line on my ipod touch, music from CD'S and music from DVD videos starting from the early sixties up until now. I have a lot of concert videos in DVD format that I would like to place on my ipod touch. What would be the best way to install DVD to Ipod touch?

    Thanks

    What is jailbreaking for?

    Simplified, it allows you to install 3rd party applications
