    Just found my old iPod Touch that I bought when they first came out. I hooked it up to iTunes and it says that the firmware is up to date. It is version 1.1.5

    I thought there was a way to add the app store to an iPod touch. Is my ipod too old? Can it be jailbroken at least?

    The latest version you can get from iTunes is 3.1.3 which does support the App Store. Not sure why its saying its the most current release though, because anything 1.x is soooo old. I don't even think you have email on that.

    My recommendation: restore it on 3.1.3 and sell it or give it to someone :)

    1.1.3 added Mail.app and a few other missing apps to the touch (for $20).

    It says your iPod is up to date because most touch users went from 1.1.4 to 2.0 (a $10 upgrade) while users who didn't want to pay got 1.1.5 shortly after the 2.0 upgrade (security fix I think).

    Then the upgrade from 2.2.1 to 3.x was $10, so 1.1.5 is the latest fw for touch 1g users who never upgraded to 2.x.

    It's not up to date, it has the latest firmware you can get without paying. Maybe Apple decided to stop selling 2.x and 3.x and that's why it thinks it's up to date. But you can still obtain the firmware from other places, a quick google should do it.
