Hi, I just restored my iPod touch 5g to get ready for the jailbreak. In the meantime while I am waiting can I install a few apps without having to restore again?

Yea, it's just best if you don't install too much. I know I won't be using a completely clean device.

Yo curly, it's perfectly fine to use a non-restored device. (The process might give an error but it's always fixable with settings > general > reset > reset all settings and erase all content)

i know, but thats just erasing everything he would just install.

I'm guessing like Absinthe it will be quicker and smoother with less data on the device.

It'll be quicker but 99.99% there won't be any issues if you have apps installed
