Is jailbreaking your iPod Touch legal?

As of July 26, 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office has approved exemptions to the DMCA that permits any users of Apple devices (i.e. iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad, etc.) to Jailbreak their devices legally.

Although Apple does not want you doing it and has made cases against it, jailbreaking an iPod Touch is legal. It does not violate copyright laws defined by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

However, if you get Installous, which is a program only available for download after jailbreaking that allows you to download all applications for free, it is illegal.

So, the jailbreaking in itself is legal, but using Installous after you jailbreak it to download all apps for free is illegal.

However, is it 100% safe to do so? No. Many people have reported issues once jailbreaking their device, which include very slow internet service, uncooperative programs, and more.

What does jailbreaking do to an iPod touch?

Jailbreaking your ipod touch does many things. Here are the good and bad things to jailbreaking your ipod touch. Im sorry if this is long, but it gives accurate and helpful facts.

good:1. cydia, ice, and rock(apps that allow you to get free apps.suggested one is cydia.)2. themes. you could get themes to put in your backround(suggested theme is ElectricBlue video.)3.SB settings is a really good app that you could get from cydia. that allows you to get a percentage of your battery life plus many other things such as wifi, brightness, bluetooth and things of that nature. very helpful.4.Installous: My favorite app that is available at cydia. Installous allows you to get apps from the itunes store for free. Say you have an app you really want,but it is 10.00$ and you dont want to spend the money. just go to installous, press search, type in the name of the app, select the one that you want and download the app. There you have it. Any app from the itunes store for free. You must first add some sources at cydia that can be found at youtube. Note: installous is illegal but i can assure you that nobody gets caught.

Bad: Jailbreaking your ipod touch is very helpful but comes with flaws such as:1. in some cases makes your ipod slower(not significantly but somewhat slower.)2. you must follow the jailbreak designed for your firmware. (Jailbreaks for firmware 3.0 may not be the same for firmware 3.1.2.)3. freezes may occur directly after you jailbroke your ipod touch. the freeze wont let you turn off tour ipod. so to fix that problem just restore your ipod and try the jailbreak over.4. this is very important. you must restore your ipod touch before you jailbreak. if you dont do that you run the risk of technical problems on your ipod such as freezes and deletion of songs and apps.

that is all if have to say. i hate it when people give you wrong information which is why i guarantee precise facts on my answers.RSNAP out.

if it the latest version that apple has, then it wont jailbreak because apple puts out patches with their updates so you wont be able to "jailbreak" it! but if you wait and do not update the ipod in a while, then the jailbreak crew will make a new jailbreak for it!

You can you a tethered jailbreak like Redsnow or Red mond pie but it is very complicated!

What are consequences on Jailbreaking iPhone?

According to Apple, jailbreaking your iPhone could cause it to not work properly. They say the phone could become unstable and stop working. Of course if you do it wrong, you run the risk of destroying the phone. Of course Apple doesn't want you to jailbreak the iPhone, but still, you take your chances.

If you jailbreak your iPhone and aren't happy with the results, you can plug it in to iTunes and restore the original settings. This will return the iPhone to its non-jailbroken state.

Perhaps the biggest issue is if you do jailbreak and then unlock your iPhone, it will most likely void the warranty. If that happens, they will not pay for any future repairs for the phone. You can get a little more information on this topic here.

How do you transfer your talking tapes from a CD to an MP3?

Hey there, This is relatively simple. There are two scenarios. 1) You have media on the CD, that you want in MP3 format back on your computer. From OS X, if you have iTunes (comes preinstalled) you can rip the CD into media files in your choice of .aac and .mp3 format. 2) If you need to get talking tapes into MP3 files, that are live recorded or any other "talking" form -> You can use Audacity OS X (Freeware - google it) to save those files to .mp3 or burn them to a CD. Hope this helps, Joey ----- Adding onto what Joey had said... Using iTunes, you can convert your CD (Aiff) format into an MP3 format using the following steps: 1, Open iTunes 2. Choose "iTunes" (on menu bar) 3. Choose "Preferences" 4. Choose "General" Tab 5. Click "Import settings" 6. Choose "import using: MP3 encoder" 7. Choose "settings: 192 (best quality)" 8. Click "OK" 9. Highlight the song(s) you'd like to convert 10. choose "Advanced" (on menu bar) 11. click "Create MP3" iTunes will now convert your CD (AIff) format into an MP3 format. - Carlo

Where can you get iMunchies for free?

There is a video on YouTube that has a link to a download site, but I don't want to disclose it in fear of the video and downloads getting deleted. Two things I can tell you are: They are m4v videos, and they work on the iPod Video, iPod Touch, and iPhone. Recently however iMunchies have become real interactive apps using the accelerometer and are on the iTunes App Store.

"Jailbreaking is risk free and cannot void your warranty. You can simply restore in iTunes at anytime to get back to a factory state."
jail breaking and ipod touch or iphone is basically adding awesome apps that app inc. does not allow. You also have the ability to customize your device.

^^^That was seriously painful to read. and you need to be a bit more specific with your question.
Jailbreaking (or hacking) an iPod deletes Apple's software off the iPod and installs a programmer's code that allows the user to install virtually ANY app on the device. However, while Jailbreaking is NOT illegal, it does void your warranty.
