    8GB is a pseudo-3G. It has an newer bootrom, which is the cause of the tethered jailbreak and ECID issues. The 2G & pseudo-3G 8GB are identical in every other way.

    Take it easy with your titles.

    Yeah, the 8 GB iPod Touch 3G uses the same firmware as the 2G, because it doesn't have the internal upgrades the 32 GB and 64 GB ones have.

    Calm down, they are the same thing really, just a different bootrom.
