    Hey guys,

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    am new to the ipodtouchfans and apple ipod,

    I had planned on buying the new ipod touch 3g today, and i know that how we can't jailbreak with the new firmware 3.1.3, so i was at the store and looked at the package but cold not find any info about its firmware, all i could tell is that it was manufactured in jan 2010, and had a serial starting with MC....
    This is quite a dilemma... I don't know what to do....is there any way to tell it doesn't have the latest firmware?....


    I would really appreciate some help...

    Even if it has 3.1.3, you'll still be tethered as you would with 3.1.2.

    Go ahead and buy it. You can jailbreak it if you own a Mac.
    I'm not sure when a Windows version will show up.

    I havn't been keeping up to date with Jailbreak programs, but they made a jailbreak for 3.1.3 Ipod touch 3G already?

    are you serious? Is there a way to jailbreak it....cause i really don't want to get stuck not being able to jailbreak once i buy it......

    I did go through some of the threads warning about 3.1.3 firmware update...but haven't read anything about new jailbreaks....

    please confirm...

    Also is there a way to tell the firmware by looking at the package? Do they mention it on the package?.....

    There's no way to see what firmware it has by looking at the package.

    You'll have to either plug it into a computer with iTunes, or find which version it is in the settings.

    I just checked the iPhone Dev Team's site.
    I don't think it'll work with the iPod touch G3 at the moment.

    I guess all you can do is buy it and hope it's running 3.1.2.
    If it's running 3.1.3, you'd have to wait for the iPhone Dev Team to release their next jailbreak solution.
