    Then, as stated above you most likely have a 2nd generation, which can not be upgraded beyond 4.2.1.  Check - Settings - General - About - Model = ???

    As I stated at the beginning of my previous post:


    You can't upgrade past where you are. iOS 4.2.1 is as far as you can go on an iPod Touch 2G.


    Games you cannot download are because they require a later version of iOS that you cannot install.
