    Hi,

    So I'm going to buy a 3rd gen iPod touch 64gb soon to replace my 1st gen iPod touch and I was wondering: what can we tell about the iPod by just looking at the sealed box? I know we could tell if it's a 3rd gen or not by looking at model number written on the sticker under the box (MC/MB). But are we able to tell which firmware it is? Because I don't want to be stuck with a 3.1.3 for months waiting for a newer firmware to come out then someone to release a jailbreak for it..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can probably ask someone working there to see if they can get that information to you. They might all get a box of iPods with the same firmware on them. But I, personally, do not work there; it's okay to ask them.

    i bought mine 2 weeks ago, from an apple store in the usa and it came with 3.1.3, i think you should look at the production date in the serial. 3rd 4th 5th digits i think mine was 006

    I hope you can find an iPod with an early production date, or unfortunately you will wait with us
