    Hey all thanks for taking a minute to read this post.

    I am having difficulty deciding on either the 2nd generation or 3rd generation ipod touch. I currently have the 1st generation touch and its mad slow starting up.

    Can someone tell me the benefits of getting either one?

    Thanks

    2nd - complete untethered jailbreak
    3rd - uncomplete tethered jailbreak BUT it is faster, more RAM.

    Countdown to G3 full jailbreak: unknown

    Personal Opinion: I never really shut my ipod completely off, and i really only use jailbreaking for Cydia, so I'd go with G3

    I have a 2g 16GB jailbroken. It works fine for me and its fast enough.
    anything above a 1g is good enough because anything above it has speakers, volume control, and good enough hardware.

    Well

    Thats what I was thinking of doing was getting the 16GB so I could jailbreak it and use it for Skype calls. I also have my manager who was looking into getting a Touch for herself non jailbroken of course....I am thinking I will tell her to go with a 2nd generation. I guess time to look around online to see if I can find a 2nd generation touch 16gb

    It's good enough for you cause you probably haven't experienced anything faster.

    On topic: Go with the 3rd Gen.

    Watch this video.
    But 3rd gen also has improved graphics which will be better in the long run.

    I'll definitely go for the 3rd Gen. Voice control and accessibility feature is a real plus for the iPod Touch 3rd gen. Not forgetting the amazing speed, on par with the iPhone 3GS.
    Besides, the jailbreak will be released anyway. Just have to wait.
