    PC (XP), I'm not exactly illiterate. I can't navigate in DOS and stuff, but I know more than a nice chunk of computer users. (like reinstalling an operating system)

    I've heard some bad things about that pwn one. Just a bit off topic on the side (since I haven't gotten an answer yet) when second generation comes out (on Monday or Tuesday) will that raise the price?

    It wasn't so great in the past, Now it works terrific, I've used it several times, whilst developing/testing/installing custom firmwares. Never had a problem once. Just follow the vid, and there is nothing to worry about, I HAVE had problems with ZiPhone though, and recently. Stick with WinPwn, it will be what i use to jailbreak 2.0., and to the off topic question, i don't know the answer.

    Most likely not, especially when you consider the "Back to School" promotion that just started, where they're giving away a free 8G iPod Touch with the purchase of a new Mac.

    As for jailbreaking programs, I know it's not a PC/Windoze program, but ZiPhone is an awesome jailbreaking program for Macs. Download the .dmg, install it, and about 2 minutes later and it's done.

    I'm not sure what help I can offer, since I'm running mine on a Mac, but..

    I will say that I was very reluctant to JB mine, for fear that it would screw something up. That being said, I'm an IT person for a living, so I get paid to fix hardware that people screw up, so it's not like I was a total noob when it comes to doing something like this. I would also add that I have to work in a PC/Windows environment for a living, so I have a fair amount of experience on both platforms.

    I can only relate my experience relative to ZiPhone, but the install was totally painless, and the results have been awesome. I haven't done much with mine other than add some games, but I have been very pleased with the results. I would also say that from my experience (which is limited, at best) it seems that a good part of the apps are focused more on the iPhone than the iPod Touch, so while you see this huge list of stuff, a good part doesn't apply or has no functionality for the iPod Touch.

    That being said, I would not hesitate to do this again, based on my experiences.

    Hope that helps...

    Yabbut he's running on a PC. I wasn't aware of a ZiPhone version that was ported to Windows...

    There is ZiPhone for windows, but currently out of my own personal experience, it's less stable than the new WinPwn.

    iJailBreak 0.6 was awesome, quick and efficient for me. It even installed the other applications from the software upgrade.
