    Hi all, I'm new to this whole scene but would like to jailbreak my 8gb Ipod touch. I'm not sure which information I need to know and which software I can use to jailbreak with. Is my Ipod a 3g? On my pod it says version 3.1. Can someone help me throughout this process please?

    I bought it probably ... around october of 2009 directly from amazon new. On the amazon page it said "Apple iPod touch 8 GB (3rd Generation) NEWEST MODEL". My model starts with a MC if that helps.

    *facepalm* it says 3rd generation in the title that means its 3rd generation! (3rd generation = 3g) is it version 3.1.3?

    Ok, You have the MC (3rd gen) model, but if you have the 8GB you use the 2G firmware files because you have the same hardware as the 2G.

    Settings>general>about to check firmware version. If 3.1.3, you can downgrade to 3.1.2 and jailbreak with blackra1n. If 3.1.1, you can jailbreak with blackra1n.

    No, that means it is 3.1.
