i used the .3fixed version of the app iJailBreak to open my new ipod touch up for hacks. the developer of the hack is a 13 year old (genius in my book) named AriX his site is located here. i take no credit what so ever for the hack. i am just listing the info here as a way to explain what i have done.
this was a very simple hack to use, basically you just download the file (shown above). then follow the easy steps that follow, which are basically just screens that popup and request a couple reboots. the total time it took the the hack was maybe 10 minutes. the best past was that it auto installed many of the ipone apps that didn’t come with the ipod touch.
plus the capability to install a large number of 3rd party apps to the ipod. more on that later.
