    Hey Guys,

    i bought the old iPod touch 1G from a friend who bought the new iPhone.
    I didn't do anything to it, I just used it like it was, installed and uninstalled some Apps.
    Now the Appstore whants HIS iTunes Password to Update MY Apps, even in my Account is recorded uner Settings/Store.
    The Appstore just wants his password for updating Apps, but I can install Apps with my Account.
    Can someone help me please? My friend had no idea how to fix it and backing up the Apps, getting a Softwareupdate and reinstalling the Apps via iTunes was no success...

    Thank you in advance,
    Marlin

    //edit: by the way: the Device is jailbroken and runs on OS 3.1.3

    you could try to reset all settings cause that SHOULD wipe details like that. It only takes a couple of minutes

    ipod touch gen 1 didn't get 4.0 so its latest is 3.1.3 so you don't have to worry about getting 4.x
