    I doubt you can get anything decent to tinker with for fifty bucks. iPod Touches tend to hold their value. If you don't mind a device with a cracked screen (that still works) you might be able to get something.

    I'm going to be passing my iPhone 4 to my daughter when I get my 5, some time this fall.

    Choice 1: Get an iPhone 5, sell your 4, don't bother with j/b or cydia

    Choice 2: Same as above but get an extended warranty of some sort and go ahead and j/b.

    Choice 3: J/b without an extended warranty if research indicates it isn't such a great risk.

    Choice 4: Find a $50-ish iPod touch that can run recent versions of iOS. Not likely.

    Choice 5: Find a $50-ish iPod touch with a cracked screen that still works. Somewhat likely but a bit risky.
