    Is The Ipod Touch Firmware Different from the iphone or is it just a modified firmware made to fit the ipod touch?

    Naturally it has the same backbone and OS but you can't run iPhone firmware on iPod touch nor vice-versa.

    Think of this logically.. iPhone has SMS and a phone, a built in mic and camera. Those at least would make differences in the firmware eh ? Similar, not identical.

    Exactly, the iPhone firmware has support for hardware that doesn't exist on the iPod touch. Same with some apps, like SMS, and Phone.

    Think of it this way, you know how you see all of those picture editing apps? And when you get the app and open it it gives you the option to use a photo from your picture library or from the camera. Basically, the app is compatible for both devices, as well as the iPhone firmware.

    Not to wreck yall's party, but its the same firmware BASE, jus with features added or removed according the device targeted! Pay attention as everything runs build 7D11 and version 3.1.2 right now

    Yeah, but you wont be able to use the camera. My point is that the iPhon OS is for both iPod touch and iPhone.

    Yes, 7D11 is the current for all three iPods and iPhones. And if you really wanted to figure this out, grab iFile and start searching around. A major thing that would prove such is grabbing "iphone 2G MMS, bluetooth, and tethering" off of Cydia and installing it on iPod Touch 2G.

    Check under General settings and there will be an option to tether!
    Havent tested it to make sure it works, maybe it could share the wifi connection over BT or USB... Dunno tho
