    Hi, I don't know if someone started this thread already, but I would like to know which Jailbreak programs are the best to use overall, where can they be found and how can I jailbreak my ipod touch 2G.

    Thanks in advance for the support (If anyone provides it) ;)

    Best and easiest way to jailbreak is to go to YouTube and search for "jailbreak". The videos will show you exactly how to do it. Green poison is very easy. Checkout videos by Dinozambas2 or Tysiphonehelp.

    Penalty is perhaps: freezing your phone, disabling some funtionality/app of phone, hours and hours of "fine-tuning" to make it better

    Benefits: enhancing the funtionality/look/feel of your phone, huge new world of apps/add-ons/tweeks, hours and hours of "fine-tuning" to make it better

    NOTE: The first question is always, "Can you get free apps?" YES... however, my advice is to use that as a trial period. If you get a free app and like it... ALWAYS buy it! Then you get free updates as they are available!
    If you don't care for the app, or it's not what author claimed, delete it.

    Good luck

    I once used "jailbreakme dot com" and that worked for me on iOS 4.1.

    My ipod touch is on its last firmware (3.1.3). I will try Green Poison then ;)

    I ALWAYS buy my apps, never get them for free unless the author specifies it, but since it's an old ipod, my as well give it a try, I got nothing to lose :)

    Download and install Winterboard. Winterboard stores all the themes you download. You can turn each theme off and on from using Winterboard.

    The themes would be under Sections > Themes (Springboard). There's 2000 or more themes to choose from.

    I use WinterBoard and downloaded for example the Jordan BootLogo, but when I download stuff, I don't know how to apply them, except for themes :S Could you help me please?

    To turn on the Boot Logos you need to click on settings. Then scroll to BootLogo.

    No jailbreak = basic model Toyota
    Jailbroken = pimped out Lexus with endless upgrade (to a point) possibilities.

    Stock iPhone = easy to get a different brand later on.
    Jailbroken= you will love it so much, probably will be an iPhonie for life.

    A jailbreak isn't that amazing, most people use the iphone stock and stay with it for life.

    That's how I've been using it since the 3GS came out, but I already jailbroken my ipod touch 1st gen, but am afraid to jailbreak my 3GS because I read some programs drain the crap out of the battery life, though I liked what I saw when I jailbroke my ipod. Don't know If I should do it or not, since I use an IP4 and always have my 3GS around just in case, but would make more sense to carry the 3GS around if It were jailbroken, then I had a reason to keep it with me.

    Any opinions about that? Constructive ones, not troll ones please.

    EDIT: These were the tools I looked up and found to be able to unlock the iphone IOS 4.3.3 (Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16; Sn0wbreeze 2.7.3; PwnageTool 4.3.3.1) they are both for tethered and untethered versions, but what does that mean? (tethered and untethered)

    Well, it all depends on what you want the jailbreak for. For me, being able to actually use the lockscreen for useful information (calendar, emails, txt, notifications) is a killer I couldn't be without (try Lockinfo). Another great solution is MobileNotifier, beta version 5 is infinitely better than Apple's broken solution. A third app I use constantly is SBSettings.

    I don't care about themes, but the three apps above are extremely meaningful enhancements to the OS, which I'm not sure if I could be without.

    I doubt that Apple will implement SBSetting soon, but it is rumoured to revamp the notification system (the author of MobilieNotifier has withdrawn from the project for unknown reasons, but he says we should expect exciting news soon). If the lockscreen is revamped as well, I might consider running a stock OS (it's a minor hassle to jailbreak every time an OS comes out).

    I see what your saying, and have heard about those 3 apps you wrote, I would like to jailbreak due to the possibility to customise my iPhone. Does it take too much battery, or is it a myth?

    Also, which one is better? :Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16; Sn0wbreeze 2.7.3; PwnageTool 4.3.3.1?
