    Sorry I'm really new to the iPod Touch, and I was just wondering what exactly Jailbreak was? I understand when you have it you can get apps that aren't in the itunes store and so on, but how do you get it on your iPod? is it risky to have? any other info on it would be very helpful and appreciated. I have a iPod Touch 2G and am aware that I can't get it on here yet but am hoping that dev team makes it for the 2G and I would like to fully understand it by the time that happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    Jailbreaking basically allow customization, emulators, and other apps.

    You cannot jailbreak 2G, however, for the 1G, you use Quickpwn.
    Jailbreaks these days are quite stable, but a restore will fix any problems you may encounter.

    ^^What He Said, but DOn't worry, the chance of breaking your ipod touch 2nd generation when the jailbreak is released is about .000000000000000000%(NOt POSSIBLE)

    BUT, if you own an ihphone, it can happen but it's more like 1.1%

    And even then, you would almost have to try to break it.
