    First of all, iPod Touch, not itouch. Yes, you choose which apps you install. It doesn't take up all the space, I don't know where you improperly heard this.

    It varies, usually under 1MB.

    Thanks for correcting the iTouch business...

    Anywho, golf pro may have been talking about RAM, instead of Hard Drive memory. Yes, it does take up a considerable amount of ram, but on a device that can only run 1 app at a time, it doesn't matter much.

    Update: Oh... bit late on that one... =P

    Sometimes, if the jailbreak screws up, it takes up a lot of space, but you can just restore, and do it again.

    There is a known problem of low space that can be corrected by making a symbolic link. The instructions are in the guides. Basically, you change where the ipod stores Apps, so it does not think it's empty. Yes, you can restore if things get messed up. You will most likely have to downgrade before JB'ing. There are very thorough instructions on the guides posted.

    Definatly... I'd reccomend ZiPhone (ziphone.org), i've used it, works easily, and quickly.
    I reccomended it to 2 friends of mine, and they've had no problems...

    And no need to downgrade with ZiPhone... however, a few apps arent compatible (yet).

    Oh yeah... forgot about that... There are reports of it working with 16, but thats iffy. You could try it if you get a 16, or 32, but there are no guarantees .

    Why? this is getting stupid now this different calling of the iPod Touch

    You lot are so petty about this iPod Touch thing, let it go, he can call it what he wants

    It doesn't use to much space, as said this only happens if the jailbreak goes wrong, but you can restore and start again

    Ok... ZiPhone just installes an 'installer' application on your iPod. From this application, you can install many different applications.

    1. Install ZiPhone on PC
    2. Click Jailbreak (Inside of ZiPhone)
    3. Wait (Don't touch iPod... Oh, the iRony =P)
    4. You are now jailbroken. There is now an 'Installer' Application on your iPod.
    5. Open Installer, and you can now download and install all the games/tools/apps you want.
