    im wondering if the front screen, or glass w/e, is the same for both the first generation and second/third. Im planning on ordering a screen cover for my 1st generation ipod touch, but the description only shows 2nd gen ipod touchs.

    I also noticed that the screen protector covers the light sensor on the top of the screen, will this affect it at all? I really like the auto brightness adjust feature and i dont really want to get rid of it.

    the 1g's corners are different, so it wont fit properly.

    you should get the screen protectors that you cut, so you can have a custom fit.

    Thanks Shashanknegi for your help. i would, but i dont really trust my scissor/cutting skills LOL

    Are the corners on the 1G larger or smaller than that of the 2G? Because i cant find the one i want in 1G, so i may just get the 2G screen cover and TRY to get it into a 1G screen. And obviously if the 2G screens are smaller, its not gonna work at all

    also, if i get that 'mirror cover' do i need to cut a tiny hole for the sensor? I know you said i didn't have to before, but this is for the mirror ones. I only ask this because not alot of light will pass through the screen protector, so the sensor will always think its dark or something and tone down the brightness and not function correctly.
