    Question Need advice on upgrading 2G iTouch to 3.1.2

    Hi,

    Currently have a 2G iTouch on 2.2.1 FW which I want to Jailbreak.

    Is there any reason I should NOT upgrade to the latest firmware via iTunes?

    If its ok to upgrade to the latest FM, then is there anything I need to do before i Upgrade?

    You know that 3.x is a paid upgrade for iPod touches don't you?

    Simplest path is to restore to 3.1.2 and then jailbreak via blackra1n. I would suggest a restore rather than an update as you will end up with a more stable system.

    Wow, I did not know that.

    Can you point me in the direction of where to get 3.1.2 (I know I can google but wanted to know a safe place to get it)

    Is there anything I need to do before I update it to 3.1.2, I know with the iPhone you need to save ECID and such but was wondering if something similar needs to be done for iTouch?

    Are there any disadvantages to upgrading?

    Once I have the 3.1.2 for iTouch, then do i...

    1) Restore to 3.1.2 using iTunes
    2) Use Blackra1n to Jailbreak
    Correct?

    The only safe source is Apple, we don't condone piracy on this forum so we can only explain how to legally obtain a 3.x OS for your iPod touch.

    It's only $US 4.95 and you can go straight to 3.1.2 then jailbreak with blackra1n

    No need to save your ECID that only applies to new iPod Touch and 3GS iPhones released in the past few months.

    Understood, Thanks. $5 bucks is not too bad, especially for the peace of mind of it not being any malicious software.

    I assume you meant jailbreak with 'Blackra1n'
