    The title probably made no sense but I have a 2.2 iPod Touch 1st gen 8g rite now and it's jailbroken. Can I update it to 2.2.1 then keep updating it to 2.2.2. when it comes out then next etc.? Or will apple delete my Cydia and installer apps? Like I have 2.2 right now with Cydia can I update it to 2.2.1 and still have it jailbroken with cydia and everything?

    No, the iPod will be updated to the newest official firmware. You'll have to rejailbreak after updating.

    You could do soft jailbreaks. It's not the same as upgrading your firmware.
