    So I'm considering replacing my iPod Touch 1G with an iPod Touch 3G. The only thing I'm concerned about is its future in regards to jailbreaking.
    For example, the 3GS took a while for the Dev Team to find an exploit (though it was an old method). I'm wondering if Apple might do the same to the 3G iPod Touch. I really like my jailbroken apps and I'm upgrading because my 1G is getting kinda beat up, I want external volume, a microphone, and much more memory so it doesn't slow to a crawl like my 1G does sometimes.
    But anyways, could Apple integrate something into the 3G hardware that will make it un-jailbreakable?

    the iPod touch 3G has new hardware (correct me if im wrong) so it might take a while since it does not use the same exploit...and BTW i think this is the wrong section for that kind of question

    There is no such thing as perfect hardware or software, even from apple. I know, it sounds weird, but its true. That being said, why not just keep your 1g for jailbroken stuff and get the 3g for all the cool new features and stuff?

    The Dev team seems to be making very good progress with the jailbreak, i don't think it will be too long until the jailbreak is released.

    I'm not impatient waiting for it or anything, I just want to make sure Apple doesn't patch it for good on the 3G but is unable to cover it in 1G. :/ I might just go ahead and order a 3G and wait for a jailbreak.
