When buying an Ipod touch of any generation, new or used, the question everyone asks is should they jailbreak their ipod touch?How long does it take to Jailbreak an Ipod touch and why?
I have seen both sides of the spectrum and this is the list of pro and cons that I have conjured up, of course this is just opinion but I hope that this will be helpful when you make you decision.
Okay for Starters we will start with Cons just because I have found that they outweigh the Pros
1. It is illegal (although I know that it is kind of accepted in the world of ipods Apole working on A way to Shut this down.Like the Xbox Live free hack, Once they figured it out Microsoft has fried a lot of systems and made them not work.
2.Problems with Malfunctioning Hacks/jailbreaks and your iPod might freeze up and be unusable.
3.To download these "free games" takes a million times longer than if you were to download from the apple store
4.When you download from the App store you can play games while you wait, when you download from Installous App Type are on the Jail-broken Ipod you cannot shut that program down to multi-task
5.Having the extra programs on the Ipod touch with the Jailbreak Slows down the speed of your Ipod in General.
6. Also Voids all Warranty that you have if you happen to buy it new, If something happens to your Ipod than you won't be able to fix it with apple.
7.The ads That are on the jail-broken install program are very annoying and maybe not everyone but I find very offensive, you can buy a ad-blocker for this but it costs money monthly.
