    I am on a 2.2.1 iPod Touch 1st Generation currently. I can get 3.0 legally so I was just wondering if it would be worth it. Is it toooo buggy? Is it okay? Is it perfect? Do all your apps work on it? Some feedback would be appreciated. Lol.. thanks [=

    I say no. What are you really wanting from 3.0 right now anyway? You have no bluetooth, none of the Apps out there have the frameworks that 3.0 has. You have no Mic, you have no Camera, you have no speaker, you have no Text messaging app. What is the point of updating? Spotlight? CCP? Landscape in the other Apple Apps? If you really want those and want to look "Cool" do it. Other than that, there is no point in updating if you have 1st Generation.

    Yeah, 1st Gen users got screwed over.
    But I would just stay at 2.2.1, it's faster, and most likely works better than 3.0 with an iPod Touch 1g

    I don't don't understand how you can "get it legal" yet don't know to the answers to these questions yourself. Your telling me you paid to get the SDK, yet you know nothing about the development tools nor how beta software works??? Also, since your getting this, "legally" as you say, most all this info, especially regarding 1G ipod touches, would be on the SDK forums.

    Sign up at the iPhone Dev portal (developer.apple.com/iPhone), pay the 99 dollar a year Fee and download it directly from Apple. You should also learn to develop applications, make that 99 dollars useful. Sell some apps.
    Sure, if you have other Bluetooth headsets.

    Unless you want to test your apps, no, it's way too buggy and isn't stable enough to be used full time.

    I'm not going to pay the $99!

    I'll be fine, i'll just wait until i can get it from the ipod update server.

    No. Too buggy, some of the features don't work properly and you have to re-jailbreak.
