Yes, Apple hating Goodiesguy has just bought a second hand Ipod Touch off trademe. Second or third Generation 8GB and its 3 years old and in good condition.

I normally don't like Apple products but the Ipod touch could do all the things I need it to such as play lossless audio files, playback video, browse the internet from my connection.

I had enough of my little Countdown supermarket S&V mp4 player, as the bass responce is not great, the sound quality is not too great either, and it will only do lossy mp3's.

Your buying a second hand Apple product will not add money to Apple's coffers so you are forgiven.

But you still have to use iTunes.

Meh. I can deal with it. And they'll be some open source type thing I can probably find. It doesn't mean I have to play my music in iTunes, just to do stuff to the ipod.

I dumped all my music from itunes and use spotify premium instead to populate my phone. Set a playlist to offline use, in the phone/ipod and it automatically syncs.

For videos I just use Plex when at home, and Goodplayer for local playback - no itunes needed.

Highyly doubt it cause it's a 2nd Gen iPod which firmware caps at 4.2.1 because of hardware capabilities.

No, but there is this thing called jailbreaking...

Yes, but you'll still have the same restrictions of hardware as you would without jail breaking.

There are hacked versions of ios which can be installed onto certain ipods. You could have a 2nd gen running 5.X. You just have to wait for a release.

I jailbroke my 4th Generation, all I found was it getting slower and slower as soon as you install something that depends on mobile substrate..

Whited00r is the name of the project that gets latest iOS features on iOS 3.x.x or 4.x.x .
