    ! I want to jailbreak it but my first question is: How can I tell what firmware I have? My second question is can I still use my old apps and buy new ones that will work from the app store if I jailbreak my ipod touch My last question is: is it worth it and are there really all that many different apps and games I can get?

    Go into the Settings App>General>About>Version is your firmware.

    Yes, you can still use your app store apps with a Jailbreak


    Yes, the Jailbreak is worth it, you get sbsettings, Themes, and much more.

    yellowsn0w is the Software unlock for the iPhone 3G. Redsn0w is the official 2G jailbreaking tool, I suggest you use it to jailbreak your iPod touch
