Is there really a need to jailbreak your iPod Touch 2G device? The definite answer is yes! While Apple keeps on upgrading the firmware of various device generations, your iPod Touch 2G device will be left behind. The worst scenario that could occur is when you are still using the default settings of your 2G device. The default settings of the OS of your 2G iPod Touch device are not good enough and cannot possibly compete with the newer iPod versions. Apple keeps on releasing newer versions of the device and keeps all the restrictions and limitations of all the versions for you to be tempted to buy a new one, which of course is another expensive cost for your budget. The newer versions are more exciting than the old one, providing new apps, cool games and more functionality. If the 2G iPod Touch is not jailbroken, then surely enough it cannot be compared to the 3G and 4G versions. There are however, important functions of the 2G that are not present in the newer versions. You can update a 2G version iPod Touch to a fully functional iPod Touch, which can even be more productive and exciting compared to the newer versions. All you need to do is install the best tool when it comes to jailbreaking. Jailbreaking tools are widely used today.
So what are these Jailbreaking techniques and are these even legal?
Jailbreaking tools are not in any way violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act provisions. It is completely legal. However, because by its nature it bypasses the security features of the iPod Touch, Apple has decided that it should be prohibited. Apple believes that as they are the manufacturers, they have the sole rights to develop and update the iPod Touch firmware. They state that using jailbreaking tools will void the warranty of your iPod Touch. While this is a warning statement, you at the other end will ultimately have no choice but to buy the newer device every time Apple updates and launches a new firmware version of the iPod Touch. But that is just not fair for consumers. As a consumer, you have paid for the device and you have all the rights to use it in the way you need and prefer it to function. The unfortunate fact is that Apple restricts your use of the features and functions of your iPod Touch so that you will be forced to buy a new one.
Fortunately, concerned developers are providing updated versions of jailbreaking tools for the benefit of users. These tools combat the security features of the iPod Touch and lift the restrictions and limitations imposed on your iPod Touch functions and features. This will allow you to use the device in full functionality without limits or restrictions.
