    Ok, I never used and Ipod (not even any Apple device) (I used Shuffle

    may be for 10-20 mins taken from my frnds). So, as now I am going to

    buy one for my self, I have to know some details.

    Before the questions, I have to give you some info about my

    surroundings and how I would use the Ipod. I live in Bangladesh. We do

    not have wifi in all the places (not in my house too). I can never buy

    apps, games as I do not have credit card. I will use the Ipod Touch 4g

    for Gaming, Music, Movie watching (most importantly), little bit

    photography (I have the sample images and raw video from engadget, and

    I am OK with it).

    Now my questions:
    1) I have already downloaded some games, apps with .ipa extension. Can

    those be installed into the Ipod without Jailbreaking? If no then I

    would Jailbreak.

    2) In the Jailbreaking process (greenpoison), before installing Cydia,

    can I install those .ipa apps Or is Cydia necessry for the full

    jailbreaking process?

    3) For playing games, is it necessary to have internet on Ipod? (Or

    there is no such thing like 'syncing with Gamecenter' every time I

    want to play)

    4) Can I delete videos from my Ipod through Ipod (without Itunes)?

    5) Can any bluetooth keyboard be used in Ipod?

    6) Is there any portable wifi router with battery (as in our country

    there is too much load shedding)? Now, may be a very fowl questoin but

    does any router has option for celluler internet input? (Like pairing

    Nokia 5230 with the router).

    7) Is there any way to use bluetooth dongle and get internet from my

    PC to the Ipod?

    Ok thats, all,, Please guys, help me with the info.

    1) You have to jailbreak if you want to pirate apps.
    2) Huh?
    3) No, you don't need data, that would be retarded.
    4) Yes.
    5) I'm pretty sure all of them work.
    6) You can tether your phone to your iPod using the DUN bluetooth profile, no hardware required. Would require a non-appstore app on your iPod too (which I presume you'd steal).
    7) Possibly, if can get your PC to push data over the DUN bluetooth profile.

    Answers of the no. 6 and 7 is not clear to me. I am not a good techno guy. So, can u please specifically state the name of any such software or the link of such process?

    Another question (as I never used Ipod):
    After Jailbreaking an Ipod, do I install the apps or games by connecting the ipod to pc, draging the .ipa file to the Itunes and sync it? Will this process install the software on the Ipod?

    i am sorry, but no one on this board can help you with piracy its against the forum rules. You do not need a credit card for itunes you can just buy itunes giftcards. Just set up a US account and buy US itunes cards off of ebay if they do not have them in your country.
