    The fact that to restore it takes forever.

    There isnt really any downsides to jailbreaking

    There really is no downside, in my eyes at least.
    What do you mean by 'downside' exactly?


    Not if you restore, and get rid of any custom banner or carrier you made with 'Make it Mine'

    Depending on why you Jailbreak there really is no downside. Its not a bid deal not being able to reboot unless your near your computer cause there are not many cases where you will need a full reboot. I just respring using sbsettings and I'm good. So really no downsides to speak of.

    This is for 3rd gen Ipod Touches only of course.

    Two down-sides:

    Battery drain: This only happens if you use certain themes, those themes would be the one's which change your wallpaper on the home-screen every 10 seconds or so...

    Void warranty: Your warranty will be void once you jailbreak, to get your warranty back you only have to do a simple restore through iTunes.

    Good stuff you guys..

    So help me understand this: once jailbreaked, i have to start the ipod touch everytime with a computer or else its gone? Why? Isnt this super-inconvenient?

    Also, would you perfer Rock over Cydia? I hear Cydia is buggier..is it possible to use both?

    not really because you will hardly ever need to reboot your ipod

    it is possible to use both, but it just takes up more space and i don't have any problems with cydia
