    You cannot get iOS 4 on a first gen iPod Touch.

    Whited00r is an illegally redistributed IPSW of a modified 3.1.3 IPSW.

    Not likely to work. Primary reason is due to RAM size, after that is CPU arch (though the iPod touch 2nd gen supported most of the 4.x trunk), finally, is missing features (mic, BT, etc).

    Overridding most of that.... the old SoC is just too slow & battery capacity too low (4.x adds multitasking, in particular the background API that drain batt life like none other).

    Of course, the iPod Touch 1G has, argueablly, the highest quality DAC....

    The iPod Touch 1G has the same CPU, RAM, and GPU as the iPhone 3G. And that got iOS 4.2.1.

    I had whited00r on my iPhone 3G for months and it ran great! Highly recommend it!

    Which is why I noted the mic, BT, and larger battery...

    I still think apple should have released iOS 4 on first generation devices. As already said, the first gen iPod touch and iPhone have the same internals as the iPhone 3G, which did get the upgrade, so it is possible. I compared a 3G with ios4 with my iPod touch 1st gen and didn't see much of a difference in speed. I would gladly take all of the new features and capabilities of the new software over a slight speed reduction from iOS 3.1.3.
