I love my gadgets but I always want that extra bit of freedom with them. I unlocked my Wii so that I could play games not supplied by Nintendo and I’ve had a hankering to do the same for my iPod touch. I don’t like having restrictions on what i can install on something which I own so I took the opportunity of my )S3.0 upgrade to execute the Jailbreak.
It was relatively painless. I used the software supplied by the DEV team and it was straightforward. The part that took me the longest was finding the downloaded formware which i’d bought from Apple. Once that was located it was plain sialing, apart from the complicated set of keypresses to reset the iPod (there’s a walkthrough in the software).
So what can i do now that I couldn’t before? Not a whole lot, as of yet. I have a new “app store” called Cydia and I have a nice bookshelf background to my home screen. Few of the applications I’ve found so far are that exciting apart from MxTube, a YouTube video downloader which is coming in handy.
I’ll be investigating the possibilities and will keep you all (I’m talking to you Google-bot, my one and only reader) up to date.
