    If you like to customize your own ipod with themes, do things apple doesn't want you to do like Download youtube videos and view them offline (MXTube), have an enhanced media player (pwnPlayer which has some nifty lock screen controls). You gain features and lose nothing. You can still buy apps from apple and use them.

    Some people on Neowin said that you can't jailbreak then 2G iPod Touch. Is this true?

    yes of course cause then you get to customize the touch with themes and you can have a custom image where it says iPod you can get access to applications you wouldn't be able to via app store due to apple not allowing them. Theres a whole load of very useful apps via cydia after jailbreaking.

    you can theme different applications like with me I have a firefox style skin for my safari, I also have a custom theme set at the min and a custom skin for the keyboard when I type stuff

    whats your source on it being this week? dev team still say they are still trying to hack the 2g Ipod Touch nothing saying this week there will be a jailbreak

    their block actually says:

    so they will be doing testing this weekend not a jailbreak will be done this week ;)
