Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 2:53 PM (in response to RocklandKennedy)I thought you could upgrade any device but with limited features. If I were you I wouldn't upgrade with an older device. You wouldn't get multitasking or background picture support but you could have issues with the new software. I would stick with 3.1.3. I was able to get my iPod running so I can deal with the issues but it's still not as optimized as it was with 3.1.3.iPod Touch 3rd Gen 32gb, iOS 4

"The iOS 4 Software Update works with the second- and third-generation iPod touch. Not all features are compatible with all devices."
Your first generation iPod Touch will not upgrade to 4.0 or later.Dell Dimension 5150, iPod Video 80GB, iPhone 3GS iOS4, iPhone 4, Windows XP, XP Home Edition (SP3)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2010 2:03 AM (in response to eaglesflight1258)will they ever release some kind of update that allows the 1st gen ipod touches to use ios4 apps like some of the games. the reason i ask is because i downloaded one, and then it went to sync it told me, basically, no dice you need ios4 buddy. i understand the no blue tooth and multitasking, but what about the other things like basic programing updates.dell inspiron, Windows XP, e1505

Such an update really wouldn't be possible. There's no way to graft the new programming interfaces onto the older operating system. It would take the full iOS4, and the first-generation iPod touch hardware just isn't capable of running iOS4, at least no in any way Apple would consider adequate.
Sorry, but if you want to run iOS4-only apps, you'll need a newer iPod.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2010 10:21 AM (in response to varjak paw)What's disturbing are the app updates that will force users to use iOS 4 once updated. It might not happen on all apps, but you know it's going to happen and someone with a 1st gen Touch who updates an app (particularly one they paid for) will suddenly not be able to use it anymore.Windows XP Pro, "Cogito, ergo iPod."

Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2010 10:23 AM (in response to rockmyplimsoul)One can always refuse the update, so there's no "forcing" that should be happening. But if a user just blindly updates, yes, that could happen. But that's not unique to the iPod touch; it can be the case on any computer where an application is updated without the user checking for compatibility.iMac Core i7 8GB ATI Radeon 4850, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Also: iMac 2.8 Core 2 Duo 24", IPad 16GB WiFi, Dell w/ Windows 7, Win XP via VM
