    ok, thinking of jailbreaking, but i have some questions,

    1. does jailbreakme.com install more important things than the ziphone does?
    2. which would you recomend?
    3. can you move the apps around on the homescreen once you use either jailbreaks?
    4. if i downgrade to 1.1.1, (im currently at 1.1.3) will i lose my new apps? (eg. mail, maps, weather, mail, stocks?)
    5. can you uninstall any jailbroken apps or the actuall jailbreak hack?
    and finally
    6. could jailbreak affect my battery life or wifi connection capabilities?

    any help would be great
    thanks

    1,2: ziphone jailbreaks 1.1.4. jailbreakme.com jailbreaks 1.1.1. completely different things

    3: you can only move apps around from the homescreen on 1.1.3 and 1.1.4. you can move them around on 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 using customize

    4: yes, but you can install them again rly easy

    5: yes and yes, you can use installer or ssh to uninstall apps, and you can restore with itunes to get rid of the whole thing

    6: wifi connection no (well i guess it could make it better), but games and things do drain battery more than music/videos

    .. You use jailbreakme.com if and only If you're on 1.1.1 .. While ziphone pretty much jailbreak any firmware( not sure if it jailbreaks 1.1.1.. Also try searching for iLiberty its suppose to be better than ziphone

    I would say ziphone is pretty much the best.

    I would have to agree that ZiPhone is the best.

    I had a hard time when I first got my iPod touch jailbreaking from 1.1.1 then trying to upgrade.

    ZiPhone is the most direct and kick ass jailbreak.

    i'm thinking the ziphone is good if your on windows and ijailbreak is better if your on macs that's just my conclusion since i tried ziphone and it wouldn't work well and when i use the ijailbreak it works

    thanks so much for the answers guys.
    so it sounds like ziphone is the way to go

    when i use ziphone, (im gonna restore to 1.1.4 from 1.1.3) i wont lose my mail, weather, notes etc. this way will I ?
    couple of other questions : if apple forces a firmware update, should i restore my touch first before updating , then re'jailbreak it after (cause of issues with upgrade)
    is it neccesarry to add BSD subsources?
    or open SSH?
    anyone here have Snes, nes, gpSphone or psx on their touch?

    thanks for any answers

    ZiPhone doesn't work for me. I keep getting the freezing every second and having to restart my ipod. I lost my $20 apps that I paid for.

    alrite so if i want to upgrade to 1.1.5 (if one comes out) will i lose my app and jailbroken apps?

    if i use ziphone im supposed to restore to 1.1.4, not upgrade rite?

    and can i make a backup file of all the music/vids/pics on mi touch so itll be easy to put em back on?
