    Default Why should I jailbreak?

    I have an 8G iPod Touch 2G, the one released with the 3Gs. (3g plural, not 3GS). I have firmware 3.1.2, and I am wondering if there are any real benefits of jailbreaking it. I have not done it, and I want some feedback before using blackra1n.

    These are both not iPod Touch specific. To be honest there is less justification to jailbreak an iPod, however many of the apps and tweaks in Cydia work the same on an iPod touch.

    Make sure you activate the iPod touch first before jailbreaking.

    Jailbreaking gives you a lot more control over the iPod.
    It let's you use dozens of differen mods, theme the iPod, use SSH, etc.

    I jailbroke my 16GB 3.1.2 iPod, and it's pretty cool.
    Careful though. You could brick the iPod, which is bad.
    Also. It voids the software warrenty. Apple will fix hardware issues, but not software issues. I got straight from an Apple Genius (one of the tech guys).

    use the AppStore and itunes to download apps without Cydia
    Get the latest info for NoAccSplash Here
    Currently it should work on iOS 4.x - 6.x
    If you'd like to help extend its functionality, the source is also available.
