    I believe the easiest way is:
    (1) Make sure you have latest version of iTunes.
    (2) Update to 2.2 through iTunes.
    (3) Jailbreak with one of the "pwn" programs.

    This would, however, involve restoring twice. I've heard you can combine steps 2&3 into one step if you use pwnage tool, thus having to restore only once, but that procedure sounded a bit complicated to me.

    hey to upgrade to 2.2 for free find an 2.2 ispw on the internet and download it go into itunes shift click update locate the downloaded ispw and it should update from that if that doesnt work then shift click restore and then locate 2.2 ispw and it will use that firmware to update and you have 2.2.


    of course you will have to JB twice if you want it jailbroken again.

    actualy it was a typo when i said JB twice :p i just realized my miastake haha

    you need to update/restore once to the 2.x so that you can jailbreak

    I have tried jailbreaking a ipod touch from a 1.1.4 FW to a 2.2 FW without updating but i had no luck.
