    Just some general questions:

    1. From a jailbreak stand point Is there any advantage/disadvantage to a 1G Touch or 2G Touch.

    2. Can you still connect to and run all yours apps off iTunes if you jailbreak?

    3. What exactly happens if your jailbroken Touch runs out of power? I've read it won't bootup without being connected to a PC after? Is there anyway around that?

    4. If you jailbreak I'd assume that means it changes the firmware on your Touch, so I'd imagine that means you can't take advantage of new firmware versions from Apple?

    Think that just about covers it.

    1. Things will run slightly faster with less lag on the 2nd gen iPt because it has a better processor.

    2. iTunes syncing will continue as normal.

    3. That whole "not booting after a restart" is an old version of the jailbreak, and it will reboot just fine with the current jailbreak.

    4. Updates to the jailbreak software usually come out shortly after Apple releases the new firmware, you can usually keep pretty up-to-date.
