    I bought a 32GB touch two weeks ago and am loving it :)

    I want to jailbreak it.
    I know the SDK announcement is later this week but I want to jailbreak anyway.

    I've read many posts about jailbreaking on this forum but I've ended up more confused than when I started :L

    It is possible to jalibreak 1.1.3 with downgrading,correct?
    I read a post here that mention Ziphone with a download link.

    What will happen to the added apps ?(the january update)

    If I decide to restore my ipod touch via itunes will they be included?

    If so, does the ipod touches with the january update preinstalled have a different restore package? If so, whats stopping people using the restore package which includes the january update to restore their pre-january ipods and add the apps for free without jalibreaking?

    about your 32gb ipod touch

    I bought my 32gb touch a few days ago, and I love it as well. Its the best 549.00 I've spent. As to your questions:

    You can get a little confused about JB your ipod, with so many different results, both good and bad, that people have been reporting. I myself think that its partly because everyone does things slightly different. Some people, like myself, spent almost a month researching how to JB my touch before I had even bought it, others just jump right in and expect it to be perfect. So when I JB mine I had just one small glitch, which I quickly solved and now its absolutely great. Everything works fine, not a problem, but then again never say never, cuz after all these are slightly less than perfect apps.

    But thankfullly as of yet no problems.

    When you JB your touch you should follow ipodtouchmasters tutorial on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/ipodtouchmaster). Thats what I did. It is essential that you remember first how to locate the oktoprep app because when the time comes to install it, you wont find it. I was able to find it because one of his comments on his you tube video actually said where and how to locate the file. From then on it was smooth sailing.

    The 32gb comes with the january update, they all do, no 32gb comes without it. So when you downgrade, as you are required to, to 1.1.1 you will lose the new apps. They do not come included in the 1.1.2 or the 1.1.3 firmwares. You have to reinstall them when you JB 1.1.3. Its very simple, just a matter of going thru installer and installing them from the apps list.

    I know its alot to take in, but hope this clears things up some.
