    Im not very technical. I have a 8gb touch and am considering jailbreaking. what would be the easiest way. does it kill my 8gb storage cuz i barely have enough room for all my songs. and what does 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 and all that **** mean. also, is there a way i can get streaming video(not youtube) on my touch?

    well I'm not sure on the streaming video bit but I have my own little guide I keep posting on here when people reach out for help

    this guide is on the assumption you have irmware 1.1.2 on your touch. to find out which version you have click on settings then general then about and look down to where it says version.

    ************** IF YOU HAVE 1.1.2 **************

    download the 1.1.1 official firmware, save it to a place you will remember. (if you have safari please turn off the auto open when downloaded option)

    if your touch isn't already in recovery mode as already instructed plug touch into pc/mac load itunes up and then hold down the lock/wake button and home key keep them held down eventually your touch will shut off, keep the buttons held down and when you see the apple logo let go of the lock/wake key ONLY leaving the home key pressed down and eventually you should get the itunes logo with pic of the usb wire.

    iTunes should now say its detected an ipod in recovery mode click ok, now depending what system your using for windows hold the shift key down or for mac options key then press restore and point iTunes to the ipsw file and click open, iTunes should start restoring your touch to 1.1.1.

    ************** IF YOU HAVE 1.1.2 **************

    Point the touch's safari to, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on install AppSnapp and soon after safari will "crash" if you wait yout touch will start to auto jailbreak, if memory serves me once the install has complete reboot your touch and your jailbroken.

    to upgrade to 1.1.2 first step, go to installer then scroll down to 1.1.1 tweaks and install oktoprep. Once installed plug ipod in to pc/mac and update to official 1.1.2. When updated grab the 1.1.2 jailbreak program and extract to a folder. If you are running windows then run windows.bat if mac then the osx file, tick install ssh and click the jailbreak button. When this has finised doing its thing power off your touch then turn it back on, your touch will reboot when loaded up (this is normal) when its rebooted you will then have a jailbroken 1.1.2

    make sure you add to installer sources and you will have a nice and easy install of iphone apps

    to add a source in installer

    1. open installer
    2. click sources
    3. click edit
    4. click add
    5. enter url
    6. click ok
    7. wait for sources to refresh
    8. go back to install
    9. scroll down to iphone apps for 1.1.1/iphone apps for 1.1.2

    for mail and maps make sure you install the prep items aswell

    also note that yahoo mail does NOT work with mail app without a workaround via the website (full instructions on their)

    if you do have not room now than this will not help.

    you do know you have to erase everything on the ipod?

    you may be better of buying a 16gig touch than jailbreaking that.
