    Sorry if I seem like a newbie to all of this, because I definitely am [​IMG]

    I just bought a 2nd Generation 8GB iPod Touch, and I'm wondering if you guys could recommend me the best jailbreaking software that's out there. Am I even using the right term? Jailbreaking?
    I really want to turn my iPod Touch in to the greatest device ever, and load it up with games, useful apps, and music. The music is easy enough for me to put in, but games and apps? I have no clue where to begin. Is "jailbreaking" what I want to do in this case?
    I mean, I could just walk in to a local cafe and hear people saying that they used "blackrain" (or something) to download all their apps and games and videos, and I'm just thinking, why can't I do that...

    So I was just wondering, what's the best thing I can do to my iPod? Which "jailbreak" should I use for best results?

    Thank you!!

    I'm by no means an expert on iPod/iPhone matters, but I have a 2G and I used redsn0w, I think.
    Maybe that's a good place to start? [​IMG]

    Take a look at this guide and see if it helps.

    If you want to get the full extent of your iTouch, jailbreaking allows easy access to do that. As for jailbreaking tools, I have a 2nd gen 16GB iTouch and use redsnow to jailbreak it. For the games you're talking about, there's *edited* along with user created games and plenty of emulators. Hope that helps.
