First need to know what version firmware are you running 1.1.1 or 1.1.2?
Well the more apps you are running, the less battery life you will probably have, but I haven't noticed any significant drop off, haven't heard many others complain either.

Yes you need to downgrade to 1.1.1 - you should be able to find it via google. DL it, then once you are hooked (your touch to iTunes) up in iTunes and it will sync once. Click your "shift key" and hold then the restore button, browse for the file you downloaded, then select it once you get that far let me know the rest is real easy.

there is a program called summerboard that you can download from the installer program, after dl the program open and touch themes and you can change then one used. But you can also dl more from the installer if you want more.

I have noticed the battery draining faster but it is my fault for all the apps I have. I am too learning like you, but these are the best forums
on the internet.

I am just amazed how well the touch is, since I wrote this ok the iPod touch.

Glad you guys got it working, you can also try the customize or customizer app,. but I hear its really buggy.

Well, it definitely makes sense for the battery to be used up real quick when you jailbreak your iPod Touch!

WHY?

Because you start installing a lot of Apps and using the iPod Touch more. When it's not jailbreaked it barely has anything and you end up using it less. :D
