    Hi
    Forgive for the silly question, I'm new to the ipod touch.
    If I brought a new 8 gig touch, which gen would it be? I'm confused cause the apple site suggest that it is a 2nd gen, and only the 32 & 64 gig are the 3rd. I am looking to get a 8 gig for my girlfriend and a 32 gig for myself. I not sure if I should get the 8 gig now, then the 32 when the 4th gen comes out. Any help will be gratefully received.
    Dave

    well its technically the 2g mc model which means it is the newer version of 2g models and it has some special chip in it that f***s up all our jailbreaks but some people refer to it as the 3g cuz its easier to distinuish 2g from 3g rather than 2g mb from 2g mc

    Download spirit from spiritjb.org and connect the device you want to know wich gen it has and run spirit and at the bottom it will say wich fw you are on and wich gen.. When I connect my it says: Ipod Touch 3g 3.1.3 but if you have fw 4.0 it will say Ipod touch 2g/3g (you will find out) 4.0 is not supported...
    You dont need to jailbreak if you dont want you can just check fw and gen

    Thanks for the quick replies. Not sure what to do now, I'm a bit impatient. LOL

    Well I would get the iPods now. But I know if the 4G has really good features, I'd also buy one. And then sell the 3G after the 4G has been jailbroken and all.

    If you're planning to buy an 8GB model, don't buy the ones that came when the 3Gs came out, buy the 2nd gen 8GB. That way you don't get ripped off considering how the '3G' 8GB and 2G models are the exact same.

    Yeah, wait till September. But then you probably have to wait a bit for a Jailbreak, because the 4th Gen iPod will again have a complete new Bootrom <.<

    Or get a 2nd gen (old) 8 gig off amazon for cheap so it can be jailbroke and then a 3rd gen 32 gig from there too but with 3.1.3 on it rather than 4.0
