    Hello,
    I would like to know the main differences between the iPod touch versions 1.1.4 and 2.x.
    And is it possible to downgrade an iPod touch 2G to the version 1.1.4?

    I'm planning to buy an iPod touch and i'd like to use voip but I read it won't run with version 2.x yet.

    I dont even know where to begin listing the differences from. They're completely different firmwares and 2.x adds a heck load of new features. Support for 3rd party apps and the App Store being the main ones. I can't even remember what 1.1.4 was even like anymore.

    And about downgrading, I think it might be possible, but it's gonna be a pain. the 1.1.4 firmware file is more or less extinct nowadays anyway.

    No, since the new ipod uses a different processor it's impossible to downgrade it. That one that ships on it is the lowest possible firmware that will work.

    Actually, I got Skype's IM+ when I was on my old 1G Ipod Touch, and it allowed me to make calls, but they wouldn't work with that Ipod. However, since the 2nd generation supports the headphones with mics, apple.com says so, it looks like I will be able to use Skype with it.

    2g touch wont work with 1.1.4 firmware as its not the same hardware, as for 1.1.4 vs 2.1 there evenly matched really, 1.1.4 has JB, stability and its pretty quick
    2.1 has Apps store, and its quick, quite stable for 2.0 but nowhere near the standard of 1.1.4 as far as safari crashing, better than 2.0.x though
