    If you are going to buy new ipod from Apple you will be only able to buy 3g with 3.1.3 firmware which cannot be jailbroken atm.
    But should be become in the end of this month.
    And you cannot downgrade new 3g ipod.

    Half Correct.

    Are you looking for a 8gb,32 or 64gb?

    The 8gb can be downgraded to 3.1.2 and then be jailbroken.

    You can still be an 2gen from Apple. But be refurbished

    Why would someone buy ipod 2g or "3g" 8 gb now?
    It has low processor and low RAM it doesnt support new features and 4g ipod is going to come soon.
    It is much better to buy 3g and wait a little bit...

    No one can be sure... But we got promisses from from JBkers (i got 3.1.3 either so we are in the same boat).
    Regarding 4.0: i am using it now on my ipod (but always ready to come back to 3.1.3). It is prety stable as for first beta. You can read about its features on this forum.
    Here you can also read about 4.0 features which will not be working on ipod touch 2g.

    Well,
    Buying ipod touch 2g now is the same as buying windows 2000 now, when Windows 7 is everywhere.
    Why woudl you need 500 Mhz processor (correct me if i am wrong) instead of 800Mhz, 128 Mb ram instead of 256MB, Older version of OpenGL with worse graphics, unability to use full 4.0 features?

    Nope m8. The thing you mentioned called tethered jailbreak and you can only use it for 3.1.2 firmware, but you cannot buy new ipod with 3.1.2 firmware.
    But hackers promissed to release JB in the end of April (they got it 1 month already ,just not releasing it not to let apple patch the hole).
    So you can wait for a week or two (i dont think it is too much to wait as i am waiting for 2 month already) and we will get our ipods jailbroken.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    P.S. new jailbreak will be untethered so you will not be required to rejailbreak it once again if you shutdown your ipod.
    P.S.S. Anyway uf you buy 3g you will not be left without jaibreak as hackers have already jailbroken even 4.0 firmware (just not releasing it yet for the same reason).
