    Hi all, tomorrow I'm going to get a new IPod Touch 4, I'm so excited.
    I'd like to know which other sites you guys use for some hacking info, news and such. I am also interested in the emulator scene, is there a comprehensive list of emulators for IPod Touch with game compatibility list and such?
    Also is it true I can run PS One games on this device and how do the games run?
    Also will it run my mp4 movies the same way as my PSP used to? Can I just copy them to the iPod?
    I am a complete noob to this, so please bear with me.
    Thanks for any input.

    You will need to jailbreak it using greenpois0n then install cydia, buy PSX4all the PS one emulator to play PS one games and the iPod can play MP4s, just drag and drop them into iTunes.

    PSone emulation was a bit choppy but still playable on my 3g itouch and he's getting a 4g so it should be a bit better

    there is a wonderful site called ipodtouchfans.com that has all sorts of info along with a nice board. You can play mp4s on your ipod yes but they just released a app called vlc that allows you to play movies without conversion. Enjoy your new ipod [​IMG]

    Forgot to ask 1 important thing:
    Is Greenpois0n a tethered or untethered JB?
    If untethered, is there a permanent JB for 4.1?

    Greenp0sion is untethered and your device is pwnd 4 life which means that any firmware that comes out is able to easily be jailbroken.

    Does it mean the JB is gone once the device is completely turned off? Akin to the PSP's "temporary downgrade"?

    Some new questions spring to mind, apologies again but I am a total noob in this:

    - Is the only way how to charge the device through the USB connection to the PC? (this could be bothersome)

    - Can it connect to the internet through the PC's USB port, bypassing iTunes and using my PC DSL internet connection , and download stuff from the web directly?

    Thx again.

    Untethered means that the device stays jailbroken after turn off (Tethered is when you have to connect you device to the computer to turn it on again)

    You can buy a mains charger or charge on an iPod dock

    and no it can only connect to wi-fi, USB is purely for charging and transferring data
