    Hey guys first post...
    Really enjoying my 32gb 2g. Is there any reason i should or should not upgrade the firmware? My main reason for not upgrading is that it might not let me jailbreak it later on down the road. thanx!

    1. There is no downside
    2. Ipod toich aint a psp. You can downgrade and upgrade freely.

    oh okay.

    I finally commited to spending money on an app for the first time (Moto Chaser) and it says that its not compatible with this ipod...i'm guessing its because i don't have the newest firmware?

    Yeah, you need to be on 2.2 for that.

    2.2 is ALOT better than 2.1.1 (or older).
    There's some new features in the appstore...

    I'd say upgrade it. I upgraded from 2.1.1 to 2.2 and it was hastle free. I didn't lose anything and there won't be a jailbreak for a while so don't worry about it. It will be free because I assume you got your iPod with 2.1.1
