    I have an iPod Touch 2G, jailbroken on 3.0.
    But a friend, who got an iPod Touch 3G jailbroken 3.1.3 proposed me to change with his, because he doesn't use it much.

    I noticed (using SBSettings) that he has something like 160mb of free memory , while I only have 30-40mb.

    What should I do:
    • keep my iPod Touch 2G with low memory and upgrade it to iOS4 then jailbreak it with redsn0w
    • take my friend's iPod Touch 3G, with more memory but on 3.1.3?

    Thanks for your advices

    Ok. I dont know why anyone would take a 2g for a 3g, but if you do trade make sure it works.

    My friend doesn't use it much, and I've been asking him to trade, so he finally accepted.
    Yes it works, I'm sure.

    I saw you had a 2G iPod Touch on 4.0 ; how is it?
    And what would you do? Trade or not?

    Why would he trade his 3G with your 2g even if he doesn't use it much?

    I have a 2g 4.0 iPod touch. It's not worth the update to it. No jailbreak for MC Model as of yet, so if you're on MB model, go to 4.0 and go for jailbreak. It's not very good unless you jailbreak as you only get folders which is ok.

    So you'd rather keep the 2G and upgrade to 4.0 then jailbreak (I have an MB model) than take the 3G which is faster but can't be jailbroken if on 4.0?

    Id rather keep 2g jailbroken at 4.0 as of now, since its fast and good for me. Other people experienced problems with 2g at 4.0 jbed (I dont know how). But think of the future most likely a 3g jailbreak will be out for 4.0 and not many cydia apps support 4.0 (Developers need to update). So in this current state if you wait and trade later or trade and then wait for something to happen with 3g's. Remember good things happen if your patient.

    I'd take the 3g 3.1.3 because when you want to, 4.0 fully supports it and it has more RAM and a better processor. Take the 3g 3.1.3 and use spirit to jailbreak.

    Ok. Il would trade if It works and it's in good condition. Don't worry the dev-team should come out with a jailbreak for your that device. So take it!!!
    And On the iPod 2g some of my games crashes because of not to much Memory.

    If I take the 3G, is there a way to transfer all my datas from my 2G to the new one?
