    I'm glad you put legal in quotation marks because the legality of the jailbreak is a moot point. Apple never once went after anyone for breaking their consumer license agreement... and I doubt they ever would have. (It's a civil issue, not a criminal one). Jailbreaking will still void your warranty so if that is something that concerns you, don't jailbreak your iPhone.

    Something else to keep in mind is the fact that you can jailbreak your phone just by browsing to a website. This indicates there is a huge security flaw in the phone. Apple will be addressing this soon I'm sure.

    That said, I'm headed to Washington, DC this weekend and will probably be picking up and iPhone 4 (and jailbreaking and unlocking).

    Apple has aligned itself with specific telephone/wireless internet companies throughout the world to sell there products. When you purchase such Apple products they would only work on those networks without special "Jailbreak" software being run on the product to unlock it from these partners. Also, Apple would only allow downloads of applications that they approved from their store. When one of their products is jail broken it can be used on many other networks and more downloads can be installed.

    In this case, the owners now have more options.

    Jailbreaking and unlocking are two different things.

    Jailbreaking refers to the process of modifying any Apple device (iPod touch, iPhone, iPad) to allow it to run unapproved applications. By design, you can only install applications on your device that are approved by Apple. For example, I have a jailbroken first generation iPhone. I was able to install a program that allows me to take videos with my phone. Apple provides no such functionality on first generation iPhones so jailbreaking the phone was the only way I was able to do it.

    Unlocking refers to the process of removing the "carrier lock" on the iPhone. A carrier lock limits the phone so it will only work with a single mobile phone provider (e.g. AT&T in the U.S.). Unlocking an iPhone is done by downloading a special application and running it on the phone. Thus, you can only unlock an iPhone after it has been jailbroken. (Since jailbreaking is what allows you to run unapproved applications).

    It is a very tedious repair to remove and replace just the broken glass because of how it is glued to the plastic LCD screen below. There may be some experts in the DR on that procedure, but others can advise on that.

    I found this on another forurm:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=481086

    I successfully removed (For hours) glass fragments from the LCD. It sucked but it came off, and I now understand that the "GLUE" is a conductor of the static elctricity required to operate the touch screen. Don't buy the glass that is seperate from the LCD...touch screen will not work, the LCD lights up as beautiful as ever, but a finger swipe does nothing.

    Default Its tricky

    It's tricky sometimes when you jailbreak your ipods because u never know how well it's going to work... my teenaged son has figured out through trial and error to tweak his ipod touch but it does void the warranty...so unless u r tech or hack savvy I wouldn't recommend doing it.

    I am trying to hunt down one of the I's that will take and send photos, from what I can see the only one that does this is the iphone which I don't really want a phone on it. If I got a seconded iphone I could use the internet free of charge as it has wifi, and without even needing to use the phone and incur any kind of charges at all, yes?
    Why they didn't put a camera on the Ipod touch is confusing to me. I'm not at all techy but it seems to be the absolute obvious extra that spoils it. So now I'm unable to buy what I need without buying another phone, which I really don't want.
