    Default Whats The Best Way to JB iOS 4.1 on iPod Touch 2G
    So,
    I have iOS4 on my iPod Touch 2G (NON MC MODEL!!). I plan on upgrading to iOS 4.1 in the near future (For Game Centre, 99c TV show rentals, and for bug fixes(?).... if you must know :P)

    I have a few questions though (as usual)

    -1) Must i have iTunes 10 for the 4.1 FW upgrade? (btw i have the .ipsw downloaded to the desktop)

    -2) What shall i use, sn0wbreeze 2 or redsn0w 0.9.6-b1 (i have access to a windows machine if sn0wbreeze is the better bet, but if redsn0w 0.9.6b-1 is better i can use a mac to do it that way...)

    -3) Does sn0wbreeze enable wallpapers, battery %, and fast app switching?

    -4) Does anyone know if winterboard is compatible with 4.1 FW (probably could figure this one out myself, but eh, what can i say, im too lazy )

    Anyways, thanks for all the answers (in advanced!)

    is it fully JB compatible now? i know it was crashing when some people clicked the "Apps" tab. Do you know what causes this? is it icon support or Iconoclasm? I use the apps tab frequently...

    I don't use Apps tab, but iconociasm and shrink works of 4.1.

    i Have an idea to test if it will crash my iTunes
    Install iTunes 10 on a VM on my mac computer and go from there..

    Update: iTunes 10.0.1.22 on windows VM didn't crash when I pressed the apps tab. So I assume that it is safe to take the plunge and install iTunes 10 on the Mac?
