    Just bought iPod touch 3.1.3 and wants to JB it. Can you tell me how to find which gen the iPod is? Do i need old iTunes (before 9.2.1) to use spirit? Also what are the risks?

    I am on mac

    thx alot

    Any iTunes below 9.2
    Then jailbreak with Spirit.

    It'll be a 3rd gen otherwise a 2G MC.

    To check if you have a 3g I don't know an easy way. But there is an app called battery magic. If it still has a lite version then get that and it will say you "device ..."
