    if you get the 16gb, then its probably a 2nd generation, and you can jailbreak it, no matter what firmware its on.

    If the 16gb is in good condition, then yes, that I would use.

    I would just by a brand new 8 GB touch.

    You can always downgrade the firmware and then jailbreak it.

    the thing is that, the newest ones are coming with 3.1.3, and if it does, you can't downgrade.

    I believe you can, using a second generation 3.1.2 (as Coca Cola pointed out).

    Not 100% sure, but I believe I'm right.

    But it has to have had 3.1.2 on it at some previous time. If its shipped with 3.1.3 you can't downgrade. I would go with the used 16 gb if its in good shape. It has the old boot rom so its pwned for life more memory and its not tethered. Even if you aren't planning to jailbreak I would still go with the 16 gb for more memory.

    Well, that is assuming it is in good shape. I wouldn't want something that has scratches and is beat up.

    Get the 16gb, the 8gb is just a second gen anyways.
