    I have Ipod touch 2nd gen 16gb (2.1.1) and I am planning to upgrade it to newer version. Here I have some questions to ask.

    1. Can I still upgrade this old version to iOS4?
    if yes, which version of iOS4 can I upgrade to? (4.1?4.2?)
    How can I do that with itunes?
    2. Will my ipod touch get slower after the upgrade? I am not sure if it can still work smoothly/properly after the upgrade. :confused:
    3. If there was problem, can I downgrade back to 2.1.1?

    Thanks, I need your help! :)

    Thanks.
    So there is no chance to make the upgrade even to 4.1 or 4.2? :confused:

    No you can. You can't update to 4.3 and later.The 2nd iPod touch is compatible till the iOS 4.2.1 after this version the support is dropped
