    Ok So here's my story, I am jailbreaking this kids iPod and sh*t right. Ok so I open cydia on both and the difference in color was huge, you can clearly tell the difference and mine has that yellow tinge that the second gens are said to have, is it possible I have a second gen screen mine is a week 83 and this guys 8gb is week 47. I had em both full with auto brightness on then in the one where you can see the brightness control its full no auto. You can clearly see a massive difference in every angle. You decide: (BTW I usually use iFrozen but for the sake of this used stock) Mines the 32giger on the left. BTW sorry for the sh*t on the lens, couldn't see until I got it on comp. And yes, the cases suck balls, they were on sale and my was dlo was stolen with my 16gb, my 32gb needs its condom for touchable transmitted scratches.

    Mine has no scratches on the front, can't say the same about the one beside mine. Its missing the cap of the wi-fi to. Then again he said he got it for 50$ because of the horrendous condition.

    Its not really brighter, actually the older screen looks birghter because of the way it displays whites, it actually is way more pleastent to look at my screen because the white is not blinding.

    I think they've begun utilizing 2nd gen ipod touch screens on 1st gen refurbs now cuz mine also has a yellowish tint which makes it look nice. I got my refurb like two weeks ago so yah.
