    What are some reasons to jailbreak an iPod touch? I have a 2nd generation one. Please convince me why it is so great for an ITOUCH! :) Thanks!

    Ability to do pretty much whatever you want.

    Majority of people install basic themes and useful patches that make the device better. However this is still fun and makes the iPod a little more fun.

    Others do it to illegally download applications from the app store

    I Jailbreak for fun, and I do like to design and play around with themes.

    Best thing to do, is Jailbreak it and then see what you enjoy doing. try it out for yourself
