    I'm going to be buying a iPod touch, but I'm unsure of what generation i should buy.

    I know the 2G has bonuses such as built in speakers and volume control, but the 1G has the jailbreak already.

    Which do I get?

    I to am planning on getting a touch in the next couple days. I currently have a 1st gen video ipod that has firmware version 1.1.1. which I never updated in order for me to put my own music and movies. Am I going to have to do the same thing to the touch? Will I be able to put my own downloaded music and converted movie files on the touch?

    On the iPod touch you can add your own movies and music.

    I got the 2G I would buy it again if mine broke, i love it, there is more features in the second gen, but, no jailbreak for it yet, hopefully coming soon. If you live GATWICK airport, you can get 8Gb Second Gen ipod touches in there for £143

    You can, they need to be on .MP4 or .MOV

    As im sure you know, but it will work even if you havent got the 2.2 firmware

    What is the point of a jailbreak on a Digital Media Player? I understand there is a reason to do it for the iPhone if someone doesn't want to use AT&T...

    What are the advantages for the Touch?

    I just got my 2nd Gen 16GB iPod touch and still learning everything about it so if someone can explain it to me, that would be greatly appreciated.

    jail break basically just allows more or different customisation (and game emulation) on your Touch.

    I would say 1g.

    I have a 1g my friend has a 2g.

    Don't get tempted by the inbuilt speaker It's absolutely and is unhearable over background noise.

    Jailbreak is good

    Mhm, I think u should choose 2G, because I think sooner or later the jailbrake for 2G will be available.
