    Does anyone know why some external battery packs work with itouch 1G but not the 2G? If the 2G is jailbroken is there a way to get around this limitation. I'd like to use the Lenmar PowerPortâ„¢ PPU2100B but it seems to only support the 1G.

    The problem is (I think, someone correct me if I'm wrong) that a lot of accessories used the firewire pins on the dock of the iPod touch, but now firewire has basically been taken place completely by USB, so there was really no need for it on the 2G.
