i'm now in the possesion of a jailbroken ipod touch 16gb (1st gen, running 2.2.1 firmware) but I'm rather confused about what the benefits are. I'm totally new to this!
I can see that it has themes that can now be set and that there is a cydia app that lets you go online and download other apps/themes but these seem very limited. Is there any other way of getting some of the many apps that are available??
I've also heard you can now download apps to a pc and transfer them to the ipod manually. Is this true, and if so how does anyone know how?
most of the stuff i have seen on cydia looks a bit cack. Are there any other apps i can put on my ipod touch that are similar to cydia, giving a wider choice of what i can install on it?
I also have another icon on my ipod called "installer" but this only seems to have a couple of things on it?? There is also what seems to be a NES emulator installed on it with a ROM of a mario clone (not the original mario game), and also an icon for th game 'DOOM'.
Basically I want to have a proper look at the potential of having a jailbroken ipod before I restore it to the factory settings, but I can't find what i need to do this - an idiots guide of how to make the most of it!! The only sites i've gone on seem to assume that I know exactly what to do with regards to install apps and themes etc.
Can anyone advise on any of the points above!?!
