If it's got volume controls on the side, it's 2nd Gen

Is that on the left hand side near the top?

Yep. 1st gen has no volume buttons, it's all done on screen.

On a negative point, you cant jailbreak a 2nd Gen Touch......................yet

the new one has a curved back too.... but the best thing to do is look for the speaker which is at the bottom of it...

check this link out too...

Thanks for your help Chris, you`ve lost me with the jailbreak thing (i`m assuming it`s to modify software) will leave all the techy stuff for my daughter.
Rep left. :thumbsup:

i'm guessing it's prob hidden - can't check as i haven't got one... but that was some of the stuff i remembered when i googled the other day deciding whether to get the argos deal! :)

btw - i added the link to apple's page to id which version you have.... hopefully the pics will help!

Jailbreaking basically allows the user to download a selection of "unofficial" third-party apps.... currently only works on the gen 1 touch... it's not exactly legal - and would mean ur touch is not covered by Apple's warranty.

Mabye by the time the warranty has expired jailbreak will be available for the 2nd gen, wouldn`t want to invalidate the warranty. :)
