It essentially means that you hack it. and it is only safe if you really know what you are doing. however, if you jailbreak your iPod touch, you void any warranty you may have and you can only get software updates for your touch if you reset your touch to the original format. however, the benefits to doing so are numerous. You can get many different themes and apps, along with other stuff. for the technologically savvy, this is a neat thing to do.

it makes it so you can install third party apps (ones not from apple) cause apple rejects alot of good stuff also it lets you get different themes with different icons and stuff you can also make your own themes on a website and use "winterboard" to install them. you should do it. I did and haven't regretted it at all. Go to you tube and search for how to jailbreak iTouch, that should work.
