Do I need to upgrade to 2.2.1 BEFORE Jailbreaking?

    I have just bought a 2G Touch which will be here tomorrow. After reading/watching as many docs/vidoes about Jailbreaking, I know what to do and am going to use "Quickfreedom"

    But I have one question.. Assuming that the iTouch I get does not have 2.2.1 already, do I need to upgrade to this BEFORE I Jailbreak? Or does Quickfreedom upgrade to 2.2.1 whilst its Jailbreaking?

    Upgrade before it. Use redsn0w 0.3 its a two step jailbreak.

    OK.. I was going to use Redsn0w, but after reading many Quickfreedom vs Redsn0w debates, I got the feeling that Quickfreedom was the better option, as it was fully "unteathered".

    I don't want this to decend into a "which is best" thread.. I just want to be sure that I need to upgrade to 2.2.1 first!
