    well, if you don't have wifi to start you can't jailbreak at all so...no but although i don't recomend jailbreaking, because my ipod froze a lot when it was jailbroken, waht you could do is just go to a starbucks or some other place with wifi, like at least here in Chile there is wifi at starbucks, gas stations, subway stations and if you live in an apartment it shouldn't be too hard to find an open wifi connection and it's already february so why not just wait until the SDK is released.

    Go to a friends house, go to the local krystal (which provides hotspots in most locations), go walk down the street (I can hit routers by the dozens driving through neighborhoods). You are likely just a few houses down from am open router to leech off of.

    If your computer has a wireless card built in, most macs have, you can set this up as a wireless acces point and share your internet connection.

    If there is a WiFi hotspot near you then you can. It just might get annoying having to walk over there to get apps...

    yup as long as you have a Mac with an AirPort Card you'll be fine. You won't need a router.

    well, cant you just plug you ipod into your mac and get the apps that way? or is there something about doing a direct connect through a computer that doesnt allow you to jailbreak?

    If you have an iMac with an Airport Extreme card, you can set your computer up to send a wifi signal through the card. You don't need a router.

    I originally was going to buy a router so I can access the net with my Touch, but learned on this board that you can set your computer as a router. The signal strength is excellent, as well. I have a 2 story house, with my computer on the 2nd floor. I can pick the signal up easily anywhere in my house, even in the basement.

    I have noticed that all the "legit" apps from apple are web apps. I just got a new 32 GB and am debating whether or not to jailbreak (I jailbroke my old 16 GB with good results). I don't want web apps, I want things like To Do list and Summerboard. If I wait for this SDK (which I admit, I don't really understand what it is) will I have access to these kinds of things or will it just be web apps?

    The SDK, or software developer's kit, is the code, or operating software, along with things like scripts and pre-"built" code that allow third party developers to write programs for operation on the iPod Touch.

    By providing the "foundation" to the third party developers, they can build their own applications to run on the iPod Touch.

    There are SDKs for things like Leopard and Tiger, Quicktime, etc., that allow people to design software that will work with and "play nice" with these and other applications.
