    Im going to buy a new ipod touch but heres the problem. I want an 8gb. But which should i buy the one currently on apples website, or the second generation. I heard theres no difference between the two except the firmware which you can upgrade. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO JAILBREAK WITHOUT TETHER. And i heard that blackra1n can only be tethered onto the 3g. But why cant it work regular if the 2nd generation and the 3rd generation are the same for 8gb? Please help me on my purchase. Thanks

    You need to get a 2g. There was a slight update to the 8gb 3g.

    Some hardware update that stopped the jailbreak. I forgot what the name was but they put it in on all iDevices one month after the iPhone 3GS was released.

    If you're that impatient, just get a 2nd gen.

    Only the 8gb is the same. So if you're trying to decide between a 2G 8gb and 3G 8gb, then go for the 2g. But the 3G 32/64gb have a faster processor, more ram, improved graphics.

    edit: Here's a comparison video to compare the different generations.
