    First of all I must say I am old, so please be patient with me. Can I ask questions here? (well that is one) what is jailbreaking? I got a hand me down ipod touch and dont know even if it is first or 2nd. gen. or how to navigate on this sites. Understand that this is like backpack traveling to Patagonia for me.
    How can I find out if is working ok and all that

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    To check if your iPod is first or second generation, feel the back. If it's curved, it's a 2nd gen. If it's flat, first gen.

    Jailbreaking is freedom. Jailbreaking is allowing read/write access to the filesystem and allowing unsigned code to run on the device. Search forums for more information.

    Also the second generation has audio speakers built in, first generation does not.

    The easiest way is to see if it has a rocker on the left side. If you are older like myself you most likely will care very little for the jailbreak. I just like to tinker with stuff but do have one device I leave jailbroken so I can use Netshare.
