how can i upgrade a ipod touch from 4.2 to 4.3...or 2nd generation to 3rd
Sell it and put the money towards a newer device.
plug it into your pc or mac and go into iTunes go to your iPod click it, then your iPod info should pop up. Click update, then it will update.
No, it won't; a second generation iPod touch can't be updated past 4.2.1.
i have the 8g a1288 can i get better than 4.2?
No, as previously said in the discussion you have a 2G iPod and those can only go to 4.2.1
