    Hi,
    I have an 8gb itouch, model MC086C ( in the setting page),
    on the back model says A1288
    I have seen threads that say A1288 means its a 2G
    MC means 3g,
    battery magic displays that its 2g.
    any ideas?

    My model is MB541LL, and it's a 2G iPod. So your Battery Magic is correct!

    Full jailbreak via brackra1n.

    MC is for 3G, Battery Magic is wrong.

    blackra1n can be used to jailbreak a 3G iPod Touch, but it would only be 'tethered', meaning, as soon as you shut the iPod down, it will not boot again, unless you jailbreak it again with blackra1n. The most simpliest way around this, is to not shut the iPod down. The iPod's were designed to be left on for a while, and so this will not damage your device.

    If you wish for a non-tethered jailbreak, you will have to wait until greenpois0n (http://chronic-dev.org/blog/) is released, which shouldn't be too long I think.

    so the model number listed in settings\general\about "MC086C" means its a 3g
    and the model number on the back "A1288" does not mean it is a 2g
    sorry for sounding stupid, I could not figure out why i had to have it tethered if it was a 2g. If its a 3g I will wait for greenpois0n.

    As far as I am aware, the 2g 8GB iPod Touch is the same as 3g, at the moment.
    Feel free to correct/flame me if I am wrong.

    How does that make it correct? Your numbers/letter dont match his at all...
    As to Ouchy, the 3G jailbreak is tethered, and the 3G has a better processor.
    IF thats what you meant by "the same", no flame!
    That rhymed.
