Nice setup, I was always unclear on what jailbreaking does, I've seen videos on how to do it but never absorbed what it did, can you clear this up for me? lol. I have a feeling it lets you use other services than just AT&T? er wut

Errr, no.

Its an iTouch, not an iPhone, so it doesnt have a carrier

Jailbreaking from what i understand lets you use 3rd party applications. What type, i dont know.

You can jailbreak the iphone, but to let "you use other services than just AT&T" you need to have it unlocked in a shop, by the operator, or a code, or an unlocking sim that you put under your sim, some need cutting to cut unused traces to allow support for some phones.

I can get them rather cheaply from $7-14, depending on the range of phones supported.

my friend jailbroke his iPhone for use on T-Mobile. It's pretty good because T-Mobile>>>>AT&T in NJ.

Cool, where I live in White Plains there is a AT&T tower right in town so people don't have problems, though I see how like out in Iowa jailbraking could be very useful,

Update on my rig:

Added a PA2v2 velcro'd to my UMD door, looks kinda funky lol.

psp as an audio player? o.o;;
and a phat one at that.
Then again, I had a Zen Vision:W which in a sense is worse because it's a hard drive. But then again, I didn't take that out much...being why I got the D2. I do have a 504, but the recording is one of the main reasons I have it.

Jailbraik in a nutshell. Installs an app (installer) onto the touch or iphone. On iphone you can also choose to unlock it (use other carriers) and to activate it (outside itunes).

The installer app is a browser with downloadable apps. You have apps to change background, games, and all kind of programs. The installer takes it input from several websites and presents you a list of all apps available to download. Once you choose one, it installs it for you. Also it keeps track on installed apps if there is a update available and lets you update your installed apps in one click. Also does it function as a app removal tool. And as you sad, it is unbelievable easy! The hardest part is to figure out witch apps you wane have installed

And please don't screw me, i have a very fine girlfriend for that jon

Edit: My 200e rambling, only 1300 more to go before rolling with tha big boys

Yea, my psp easily rapes all, I wear cargo shorts, and you've seen those they usually have a big pocket on each side towards the bottom, fits fine right in there.

So basicly Jailbraking is just a fancy way to say unlock i sappose, yea I got my psp running custom firmware so I can run all kinds of homebrew apps

Why on earth would you go through the trouble of lugging around that amp on top of the already large PSP just for PX100s?

Sometimes I get the impression that people want a player>amp>headphone rig more than they want a rig that sounds good.

It does seem to be that way now...the amp truly isn't needed, especially when you're just amping the headphone out for the main purpose of gain.

I guess it's to distinguish yourself from other people?

imo the px-100 responds well to amping, better then most portable phones. but I dont know about the PA2v2 enough to say if its a big difference or not

It responds so well that spending an extra $60 on better headphones won't get you better sound? You can buy used SR-60s for that price, and that doesn't even involve selling the PX100s.

This is symptomatic of a much larger trend that seems to be happening.
