    Im using 1.1.4 (Software Upgrade), Yeah I purchased the Jan. Upgrade pack because I wanted the new features and didnt want to hack the ipod. I want to jailbreak it because I saw nice themes from SummerBoard, but besides from that, what other things can you do with a jailbreak ipod? What other apps are there? I look through the list, but what is the most common apps people download and what do they do? Is it worth hacking? If something goes wrong in the jailbreak, will my ipod be damage forever? I dont want to jailbreak it because this ipod was a gift and I dont want to get it damaged.

    Please help with this new guy at the forum.

    there are lots of games and things like last fm and on and on
    themes are great for summerboard like you said
    you cannot permanently brick an ipod because you can always force restore in itunes

    Well, first - search. There are tons of threads with the same question.

    There are some really neat applications out there... Here's my current list of apps (videos aren't mine - I just found them):

    - VNsea - able to remotely control all 3 of my PCs - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFwnRsJaYvA

    Well I'm new with the ipod touch too, but I have MxTube, to download the videos from utube so I can show the videos to other without being close to any wifi.
    Touchpad Pro/VNsea, to shutdown my computer when I'm not home, or check my messages on MSN.
    Pockettouch, control your music in your pocket
