    It uses 3gen firmware. It has an updated bootram to support 3gen firmwares.

    Umm im sorry to tell you but it uses 2gen firmware.

    I have the "late 2009" mc model 8gb and it uses 2gen firmware.

    Only the 32 and 64gb are true 3g.

    The iPod Touch 3G 8GB uses the iPod Touch 2G firmware. Apple doesn't say the it's a 3g or late model. It's actually a 2G with different Bootrom. So it uses iPod Touch 2G Firmware.
