    Jailbreaking
    The process of allowing read write access to the filesystem of iPhone, allowing for installation of third party native apps like Installer, Cydia and SummerBoard/winterboard. Tools used for jailbreaking include(d) XPwn, WinPwn, iLibertyX or iLiberty+, iPlus, iDemocracy 3.

    Cydia
    Is an application like the appstore, but with all the unapproved apps that Apple wont put on the appstore.

    winterdoard for 2.x and summerdoard for 1.1.x
    Is an application used for changing themes and the over all look of you iPhone/iTouch

    Springboard
    is your iPhones/iTouchs gui, its whats changed with winterboard

    you need to jailbreak and get cydia on your iPhone. Everything is done with cydia. And I wouldn't use installer

    Do you need to unlock it?
    2G or 3G iPhone?
    Installer is controlled by RipDev. Trust me it will only give you problems
