    Hi,

    I've just bought an iPod Touch Gen 1. It came with version 1.1.5 and I have jailbroken it with ZiPhone.

    I keep reading about jailbreaking different versions such as 2.0/2.1. Is there any advantage in upgrading to the newer firmware and then jailbreaking it? Or is it just a case that you can't downgrade to a lower version and that why there are methods for these later firmwares?

    Its probably a n00b question, but I have to ask

    You can always downgrade or upgrade as long as you have the firmware. But, 2.1 is most stable firmware at the moment. Also you need it to download apps from itunes. Update to 2.1 in itunes and use quickpwn to jb. Simple and easy.

    Since I've already jailbroken 1.1.5, is it quite simple to unjailbreak it and upgrade to 2.1 and jailbreak that? or is it too late now?

    1.1.5 is stable, BUT it lacks a lot of features that the newest firmware has.
    Beside, only 2.1 can run ALL the AppStore applications. (There are apps that do not work on 2.0 while it works on 2.1)
    You can always downgrade, but after you've tasted 2.1, you would not want to downgrade

    The best version to jailbreak is 2.0 and the easiest is 1.1.1
    Use Quickpwn for 2.1
