    Ok hi im new to the forums so if i posted the thread in the wrong place or it was already discussed i apologize. I bought an ipod touch on 9/25/09 it was a 8 gigabyte ipod touch. A have been trying to jail break with blackra1n but it has not worked...i ll just try again i heard its random like that. So my question is, is my ipod a 2G or 3G. i received mixed answers, im currently running 3.1.2, and i also what jailbreak should i use. Stick with blackra1n or something else?

    Go to Settings > General > About and check the model number
    If it starts with MC, then it is 3G and cannot be jailbroken.
    Btw, welcome to iPTF, don't forget to read the rules

    The iPod touch 8gb can't be jailbroken and the iPod touch 3rd gen was released on September 9th so it will be a third gen.

    but it might have been last stock?

    And the 3g ipod touch CAN be jailbroken and the new 3gs CAN be jailboken but they are tethered Jailbreaks for a while until a new boot exploit can be found but ARE tethered jailbreakable!

    Well, right now there is no jailbreak, tethered or untethered, that is for 8gb 3g models.
