    Question Going to buy iPod Touch 4g. Can I jailbrake ? What OS maximum ?

    Hi,
    I'm going to buy an iPod touch 4g, since now with 1ghz & complete acess to nice market apps ( probably most if jailbreak is done ) I wanted to ask before purchase.

    I'ld like to know:
    1) What is the iPod last update version developed ?
    2) What is the latest iPod OS version that can be jailbreaked ?
    3) Where to look to know the version installed in the young fella ( I'm buying it at second-hand ) ?


    Thanks for help, found you through xda.

    It's 5.1 but it'll be tethered, if it's been previously jailbroken maybe the shsh blobs were saved for iOS 5.0.1 which is untethered

    Settings>General>About>Version is the iOS installed.

    Waw, fast as a cheetah, thanks.
    I red a bit about this tethered/untethered, and as far as I understood, it would be better the second case, cause for the first one I need a pc everytime I power it up, am I right ?
    I suppose so that it would be better if it's 5.0.1 instead of 5.1 ?

    Thanks again.

    , the untethered jailbreak for the latest iOS, just came out over the past few days. If you're going to get an iPod Touch, your timing couldn't be better!

    Please hit the Thanks button if I helped in any way! :eagerness:

    Great thing, but it's a bit late. I bought a Motorola Defy+ like a week or two after posting here & I'm happy with it. Thanks any ways for help.

    And yes, I'm sorry for not closing the topic with a temptive new post, I thought that nobody would care any longer about it.
    Thanks again guys.

    1) iOS 5.1.1
    2) iOS 5.1.1 search for absinthe 2.1 for iOS 5.1.1
    3) i don`t really know what you mean.

    If you get your new ipod you may have to upgrade from 5.1 to 5.1.1
    warning: for 5.1 there is only a tethered jailbreak this mean you could only start your ipod with your computer and an internet connection.

    for updating your new update:
    connect your idevice with a wifi network go to settings -> software update
    or
    connect your idevice with itunes and got to device settings and update from here.

    for how to jailbreak ios 5.1.1 search for a youtube video.
