    Apple stopped giving updates for that iPod 2 years ago and the successor of it a year ago.
    Besides even if you got IOS5 it would be HORRIBLEY slow.

    You can't do it. iOS 5 is limited to the 3rd and 4th generation iPod Touch.

    Yeah, why would you want to?

    Go ahead and take the plunge -- & get rid of that antique.
