    The 1st gen is not limited by software, it's crippled by Apple's hardware. There is no mic, as to whether you could attach a headset with mic and have it work, I doubt that as well. Apple wants people to have a reason to hardware update and the mic feature is a good reason for some people.

    Doeselboy pretty much summed it up.

    No. The hardware in the 1G iPod Touch does not support Line-In Audio.
    No matter what software you load into the baby you'll never have Line-In (recording).

    ...unless somebody went through the trouble to enable you to record on your computer, and have your iPod receive the files over a Wi-Fi network. But that would be rendered useless since you're already at your computer doing so.

    that was what i was thinking but i also heard the 2.2 enabled the apple mic= headphone to work(this is wrong i have figured out) but the touchmod mic would be cool if it would work for firmware 2.2

    the touchmods mic worked for old ipods there shouldn't be a reason why it won't work for 2.2

    The Touchmod mics use the dock connector and for whatever stupid reason, Apple deactivated the dock connector line in with fw 2.0.
