    Hey Guys

    Have just ordered a new 3GS, so my touch will be surplus to requirements, which is a shame as its awesome, but hey, can't have everything.

    Its the 16GB 2nd Gen, in good condition, with only a few scratches on the back which can be seen closely. What would I be looking to fetch price wise?

    Now my main question, its jailbroken. How do I completely get it back to how I bought it from the shop? I want to get rid of everything saved, music, videos, email details, etc etc, and the jailbreak so its like new.

    Any help appreciated

    Cheers Guys

    Ben

    Restore your iPod in iTunes.

    Is that it? Just a restore? Not a hard reset or anything?

    Thanks Chicken

    Youll get more money with it jailbroken.

    Put it in DFU Mode, and Restore it to official firmware.
    This will wipe everything.

    Jailbreak it, then leave it alone. Now you have a brand new, wiped, jailbroken iPod.
    You can probably get 300-325 with the jailbreak.

    Since the 8GB 2G is £160 new, I'd expect you to get a lot more than £140 for a 16GB 2G, I reckon £180+
