    what is the point of jailbraking right now if there are no apps to put on? Unless you are one of the people trying to develop apps, isn't it sort of a nuisance(right now) for the average user?

    Yea, that is why I am waiting until a good amount of apps come out so I can do it all at once.

    I think there are some apps that run on the iPhone that might run on the Touch.

    The other 21 page thread and growing is just funny

    So many people clamering for a hack that doesn't actually achieve anything for the average user ..

    Apps will have to be recompiled and tested on the ipod ... then we'll get a nice gui tool etc in a few days with a bunch of apps and a nice custom springboard.

    I've waited a few weeks .... i can wait 1 more ...
    Its less risk at least with ipod as no baseband hacking but still ... click a link right now ... kill ipod and force a restore seems to be the common activity right now

    Yeah, everyone posting on that thread is stuck. I also don't mind waiting another day or so.

    I think you can run the nintendo emulator on the touch if its jailbroken. Go to this site on your touch to jailbreak but be careful this is just a beta version!! irc.toc2rta.com (this is the site and I am not responsible for any damages done to your touch because of this)
