    I realy hope someone can be kind to help me
    I have 1 gen ipod touch firmware 1.1.1 (3A110a)
    is already jailbroken and summerboard is installed

    I realy want to play new games like Enigmo but for that i have to upgrade firmware so i realy need help with this

    Questions:

    1. Do i have to format ipod touch to upgrade from 1.1.1 to firmware 2
    does it cost money?
    if i dont have to format do i loose all music by upgrading
    or only Apps?

    2. If it does cost money and i dont have credit card
    do i just buy those itunes cards they sell in my local store?

    3. Do i have to upgrade itunes to a certain version before starting upgrade

    4. What version of firmware 2 do i upgrade to so i can jailbreak it and install summerboard themes?

    5. When downloading new games from itunes do i only need Internet conexion on pc not have Wifi turned on on Ipod touch (wifi on my ipod dont work good so slow)
    Just plug ipod by usb into pc start itunes and download right ?
    without having to acess the apps by wifi like before which was a pain

    6. Once updated to the correct firmware 2 version
    How do i jailbreak it
    I want themes on it so i guess i need summerboard
    How do i jailbreak the version 2

    7. Also what is the best Free program to backup your songs
    from ipod?
    and is there a program that also backup the file ItunesDB (Database)
    so i dont have to manualy backup it through total commander

    PROBLEMS I HAD JAILBRAKING:

    In 1.1.1 i had problems like apps crashing it might be because of summerboard
    (dim wallpaper=off)
    i had problems with most of the dock skins half disapearing
    i have now turned dock off in summerboard and it seem more stable

    I had my Songs erased from ipod twice in 2 weeks
    its realy was not erased but the file ItunesDB that hold the database got corrupted, fortunaly i now backup that file and restore all songs instantly
    so no more lost songs
    but there seem to be some unstable problem because of the jailbroke

    so how to fix this when upgrading to version 2 and jailbreak again
    i realy need themes so i have to jailbreak

    I would apreciate any help you can give

    ok here goes:

    1:not sure what you mean by format, when you upgrade i think you lose all music/movies/apps (or atleast you do when you jailbreak it)

    2: it does cost money but im not sure if you can use gift card.

    3:i believe you must upgrade to itunes 8 (if you dont i would reccomend it anyway, what with genius ect.)

    4: i think you have to upgrade to firmware 2.1

    5: yes you can download the applications on itunes and they will sync next time you plug in your ipod.

    6:use this tut here

    http://www.coderetard.com/2008/09/19/iphone-quickpwn-21-gui-version-released-for-windows/

    to jailbreak. make sure you check the cydia and installer boxes, as installer can be really buggy in 2.1. On 2.1 you use winterboard not summerboard, i cant remember wether you can get it straight away or if you need to get it by adding a source.

    7:i dont know about this one, NONE of the programs found my ipod except for total commander, lol.

    hope this helped

    Questions:

    1. Do i have to format ipod touch to upgrade from 1.1.1 to firmware 2
    does it cost money?
    if i dont have to format do i loose all music by upgrading
    or only Apps?

    - yeah, u have to pay for $10 in order to upgrade to 2.0

    - but if u found the 2.1 it's for free. google is your friend. i suggest you upgrade to FW 2.1. it's better.

    2. If it does cost money and i dont have credit card
    do i just buy those itunes cards they sell in my local store?

    - try to find the 2.1 FW. it's free

    3. Do i have to upgrade itunes to a certain version before starting upgrade

    - yes, upgrade to itunes 8.1

    4. What version of firmware 2 do i upgrade to so i can jailbreak it and install summerboard themes?

    - it's not summerboard now, its old. winterboard is the latest. you can install it after u jailbreak.

    5. When downloading new games from itunes do i only need Internet conexion on pc not have Wifi turned on on Ipod touch (wifi on my ipod dont work good so slow)
    Just plug ipod by usb into pc start itunes and download right ?
    without having to acess the apps by wifi like before which was a pain

    - yes, if you want to download the apps from the itunes store, it's more faster. then sync it to your ipod.

    6. Once updated to the correct firmware 2 version
    How do i jailbreak it
    I want themes on it so i guess i need summerboard
    How do i jailbreak the version 2

    - again, not version 2. it is 2.1. jailbreak it using quickpwn. the instructions are here. it is very easy to use. just follow it carefully.

    7. Also what is the best Free program to backup your songs
    from ipod?
    and is there a program that also backup the file ItunesDB (Database)
    so i dont have to manualy backup it through total commander

    - itunes can back it up automatically. but if u want to back up manually, it's up to u.

    PROBLEMS I HAD JAILBRAKING:

    In 1.1.1 i had problems like apps crashing it might be because of summerboard
    (dim wallpaper=off)
    i had problems with most of the dock skins half disapearing
    i have now turned dock off in summerboard and it seem more stable

    - you're having problems because firmware 1.1.x is old. go to FW 2.1. it's different on 2.1. very easy to use and updated. latest.

    advice: search this forums. u must jailbreak 2.1 use the link i gave to you.

    trust me, 1.1.x sucks. good luck.

    Ok thanks
    Is it possible someone can Pm the link for a good working 2.1 firmware
    so i dont end up with something corrupt or something
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    With format i meant delete everything manually
    or conect it to itunes to do a restore or something

    since is jailbroken 1.1.1 so it wont give problem when updating to firmware 2.1
    or will firmeware 2.1 automaticly do this for me?

    Also is there way i can backup all music in 1.1.1 and then restore all music easy
    in firmware 2.1?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Now i updated itunes to 8.1 and purchased a apps
    but i cannot get it into ipod touch there is no Application tab on my ipod when is conected
    only the apps tab on the itunes where is stored

    I havent updated firmware yet because i want to do some backup first
    so is not possible to download Apps from itunes to firmware 1.1.1
    maybe that is the reason?

    i have to have firmware 2.1 to get apps on it from itunes
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Forgot To Ask:

    once upgraded to 2.1 and jailbreaking it then installing winterboard
    can i still install the Apps i had on 1.1.1

    I have a bunch of them many in the free-beta state
    i dont like to buy all the apps that become payware but keep using the beta

    Can i transfer them with total commander and set permision with Squid and will they work?
    im specialy concerned about snes4iphone,gpsphone and Shoplist which i use most
