    Pros and Cons of Jailbreaking an Ipod Touch

    So i might get an ipod touch later on and im thinking of jailbreaking it. mainly because cydia has some sexy apps that the appstore doesnt have, i will keep it semi legit like buy all the games (that i have to pay for) on the app store etc...

    so i few question i want to ask, what are the pros and cons of jailbreaking? does it lag your ipod (mine will be 4th gen)? my mate has jailbroken his iphone 4 and its not lagging but ive seen vid of ipods lagging real bad, how can it damage your ipod?

    obviously if i knew what i was doing i wouldnt have made this thread, so haters dont hate
    Oh hai der.

    Pros : 1000000 different things

    Cons : No warranty if you bring it to the Apple Store without unjailbreaking and you can't get latest software

    The more mods you start running from cydia the more resource hungry your ipod gets, meaning apps crash a shit ton because the ipod runs out of ram. This is my main gripe with the ipod, not enough ram. Constantly have to worry about what programs I have open before I open another one so I don't end up crashing mid session.

    pros: free apps, more customization, more apps.
    cons: all warranties will be cancelled, apple won't help you with your problems, or fix your iPod.

    I don't think it will lag your iPod. mines jailbroken. I'm actually on MPGH mobile on my iPod. its quite nice to have your iPod jailbroken, if you don't think your going to need to have it fixed or anything

    Pros: So many small things you can go without, but add up to be great.

    Cons: Download/Update the wrong package and you fuck your OS so bad you lose everything since your last sync, and have to restore.

    Right now I'm stuck in Safe Mode and iOS is completely fucked. Can't boot regularly, and I uninstalled every package. Sync lots and you'll be good.
