Do i need to jailbreak or not?

Hello everyone!

This question may be dumb but i couldn`t find any thread that could tell me what I needed to know. My question is:
If I have a iPod touch 2g, can I just go to ur website (toucharcade.com) on my iPod and download the game / app I want. Or how does it work? Do I have to wait untill iPod touch 2g gets jailbreaked? or is it just to download.

As I said these questions might be dumb but I have to know.

Thanks // Kev

I'm not real clear on the question, but if you want to download a game, you just click (tap) the link on the webpage and it takes you too the app store.

If you're wanting to download cracked games for free, you're on your own.

Yea if you click a link on this website it will take you to the app store where you can download it. If you want cracked apps then you will need to jailbreak.

Thanks alot for the quick answers guys. Now I know everything I need to know (I think) and just so you all know, I am not looking for cracked versions or jailbreaking my iPod touch 2g, I just wanned to know if I had to do it.
But again, thanks for the quick answers.

1. We have a whole forum for jailbreaking
2. The links here take you to the appstore
3. The vast majority of the people here are against stealing apps
4. So are the devs that come here
5. IF you want free apps/game then yes you would need to jailbreak
6. Jailbreaking is NOT possible on the 2nd gen iTouch

And allow me to point out that only unapologetic douchebags crack apps. I can understand pirating an Xbox 360 game (not condoning it, don't get me wrong), but pirating games that cost 5-6 dollars?

Give the devs wath they deserve. Support the independent dev scene. Buy your apps!
