    Once apple has patched up the tiff exploit in safari what hapens to our already jailbroken ipods. Will we still be able to use it the same or will the installer or something not work?

    everything will be fine as long as you don't update :)

    wait until hackers crack the next update, or just update and lose all of your awesome features simple as that..

    I think:

    Just don't update and apple can't fix the bug. When you update you should restore before, in order to wipe all the 3rd party software off the ipod to make sure you don't end up with an iBrick. And if the update fixes the tiff exploit then the jailbreakers will have to look for a new way to 'expose' the iPod. It will most likely be about a week between updates before we see third party apps on that version of software.

    don't rely on the week, I'd say a month if not more.. look how long it took them to get just the tiff..

    apple should just embrace what hackers have done. They've made the iPod touch an even greater device. I don't really see any harm in it.

    Unless the only Safari crash you have seen is the required one for the .TIFF exploit. :D

    You're just not looking hard enough or not using it enough. The touch has a bunch of bugs. It's still totally usable....but don't deny the bugs. It's definitely not as polished as the other iPods.

    I had that problem at the start but not anymore. Turn off your ipod once in a while.

    See the obvious: Sooner or later a forced update of iTunes is required (Leopard) for most users, and Apple can simply make it refuse to sync with your iPod unless you upgrade to the latest firmware... Apple has the control.

    And if your iPod breaks, and you need to send it in for repair, you can be pretty sure they will upgrade it to the latest firmware before you get it back, too.

    True, but if that is the case I will definitely not buy Leopard.
