    Well riding the Motorcycle today and my 8gig 1 year old iTouch Flew Out of my pocket at 80pmh on the freeway. Spent 1.5 hours going up and down the freeway looking, found the Twisted Aluminum case, never found the body.
    Anyways I had a Love Hate Relationship with it anyways, yes it worked well 30% of the time, Way too many times I would have WiFi servers come up and when I go to join the dreaded "Cannot Join Network" would happen 75% of the time, very aggravating etc.. Anyways I rarely use it as an iPod, I have a Classic with 80g and much easier to maneuverer while on the bike so I had it jailbroken (Not 2.0) and was fine. My questions are. Is the WiFi any better? if so is it noticable? Can I jailbreak the new software and get the older Apps I liked so much and if not can I downgrade to another OS and jail break that?

    Thanks For Listening.

    The only old software you can get are the one's ported to 2.0 or above(not much).

    I don't know about wifi.

    And 2.0 and above is jailbreakable. Search the forums on how to do this.

    Yes you can downgrade to an earlier firmware. Search for the firmware and download it. Downgrade iTunes. Option click restore and select the firmware.

    Hope this helps

    you cant do that, not with the 3g

    only with the old iphone, which isnt as cheap as the touch unless you buy one used
