    well as long as you have a 1g ipod you should have it jailbroken AND upgraded to the latest jb compatible fw.....im pretty sure itd be fine to use the free firmware but it really depends on where you found it...the upgrade is very worth it...i think the app store is finally starting to come out with some pretty awesome apps....Just to be safe though...i suggest you just buy a prepaid itunes card from albertson's or something for your apps and firmware ....you can find a redemption code or something online that allows you to make an itunes account without a credit card....

    .. anyway I am going with the free upgrade , I still have some questions though, I downloaded the f/w somewhere..How can I be sure that it is the right one (the filename is iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw /239mb) ? Is there any known issues with the 2.1 ? As I got my upgrade this way would I still have access to the app store?...
    I hope I am not breaking the forum rules

    it'll be fine.
    BTW you can download the firmware for free directly from their servers (legally).
    you just need to know the link.
