I have a touch now...I am taking the wait and see approach....for a couple of reasons.one to see if apple releases an update fixing the calendar app and maybe adding some new apps.two....to see how the jailbreak evolves, I find the hack pretty intimidating and so I would want it to be a more polished 1click operation.Finally I would need to see some really amazing apps being made that I could'nt live without.having said all of that...in my opinion the touch is not yet a mature product, it works well but still has many issues....it will probably be 3 or 4 updates down the road before it is completely stable. It's at that point I would consider a hack and probably just ignore future updates.

The original firmware can always be restored easily. Sign In or Register to comment.
