    I know iOS 4 doesn't officially support 1G, but has anyone managed to force it on there somehow? I'd like to play around with it, even if I get horrible performance. Just to see what it's like. ;)

    I doubt anyone can "force" it on there. Even if you do youll get like 1hr of battery.

    Well if they can get Android semi-working on an iPhone, I don't think this is too much of a stretch.

    I decided to jailbreak my iPod touch 1st gen after hearing that ios 4 would not be supported and now I have folders and multitasking on it so I'm good. performance wise, it's still good. I use my Ipod all day for email, music, videos everything and the battery makes it through the day, so I'm happy.:)

    It's been a few days since iOS 4 has been released. Has anything like this happened yet?

    The hardware is so outdated, even if you got iOS on there, it wouldn't support more than half, in any, of the features.

    The main one I want is the updated photos app.

    I don't know if there's a complete list, but some major features are listed at Apple's site.

    I'm thinking also to jailbreak my ipod.
    Where did you find the info for doing it?
    After jailbreaking, may I still install "official" apps?
    and synchronise to itunes?

    thanx

    Drove me to it...

    I decided to jailbreak my 1g. Since there doesn't seem to be any official updates I thought why not. It so great! Really tempted to do my phone now too... I have a felling apple will be introducing quite a few people to jailbrake this way.

    1g runs great with radio open in background (which is all i wanted), performance and battery are fine. I installed Insomniac so can have wifi always connected (great for yak!).
