    Don't jailbreak. That's a simple answer. Why? You don't have a clue what it is.

    Jailbreaking just does stuff Apple wouldn't allow.

    since you have a 3g ipod touch if i were you i wouldn't. i would hate having to re jailbreak every time i turned the ipod off. just an opinion.

    btw jailbreaking is what lets you add a theme third party apps and plugins.

    Read it, learn it, ask questions. Once you feel comfortable on it all, then you may want to jailbreak. But be warned, it is tethered, so whenever your iPod is turned off, you need to 're-jailbreak' to boot your iPod. It will take 30 seconds or so. And once done, all your jailbreak stuff will be back.
