    Trust me, I don't actually plan on swapping out the processors of the iPod touch 3G and the 2G, I was just wondering. Would it be possible to take an iPod touch 3G's processor and put it inside the iPod touch 2nd generation? I DON'T ACTUALLY WANT TO DO THIS. I am simply just wondering. (I'm saying this because I don't want this post to be sigged by anyone.) So yeah, possible?

    i don't think so. i'm not 100% but i believe that the processor is part of the main board.

    The two devices are so similar I IMAGINE it might be possible, but probably not, they always change one thing which requires something else to change a little, etc. (like how the screen plugs in to the board)

    It's probably but probably impossible ATM.

    it would depend on if the main circuit boards are identical except for the memory, if they are then I would say yes it could be possible.

    The processors themselves are completely different physically: the 2G has 65nm while the 3rd Gen has 45nm. Also Apple changed how things are arranged making it more cramped then ever

    I think I've read somewhere is that the circuit boards are different, so I think it can't be done. I think the CNET review showed the comparison between the 2G and 3G boards.

    For short. It's pretty much impossible. It would just not work. The motherboard is not made for a different CPU model.

    if you really want to unsolder every pin on the processor and resolder one on there then go for it, otherwise no. The average person cannot change an inbuilt cpu. It's pretty much impossible.
