    Im not very intelligent on the jailbroken topic and have not really found a direct answer to my question. But if i jailbreak my 2G Ipod Touch when they finally release a jailbreak for it and lets say firmware update 2.3 comes out, will i need to restore my ipod back to factory defaults upgrade my firmware and then re-jailbreak my ipod? Or can i just upgrade the firmware while its jailbroken? Or on the other hand would the jailbreak only work with Firmware 2.2 and not a newer version?

    NO. When you update you lose your jailbreak. So yes you have to rejailbreak.

    Here's how it would work:

    You have 2.2 firmware, and it's jailbroken.
    FW 2.3 comes out, you would have to wait for a 2.3 jailbreak.
    FW 2.3 jailbreak comes out, now you can update, just:

    1. Restore
    2. Update to 2.3
    3. Jailbreak 2.3
    NOTE: After restore, all jailbreak data will be erased

    This is just an example of how it WOULD work.

    I thought the dev team said the jailbreak is in the lower code so you could update and still have the jailbreak(I think i herd something like that.I am a n00b after all lol)
