    Question Upgrade iPod Touch 3G-8GB-MC to iOS 5
    I have an iPod Touch 3G 8GB MC, on 4.2.1. I am aware that I am unable to update this device to iOS 5.0, because it is considered as a 2nd Generation Model.

    Is there any way I could upgrade this device past 4.2.1 on the MC model?

    Thanks,
    Chibichuba

    Nope, sorry.
    4.2.1 is it.
    The 8GB model is just a second-generation unit with an updated bootrom.
    If they told you it was 3G when you bought it, they lied

    There's absolutely no way? I'm pretty sure i've heard of custom firmwares like 4.0 for 1st Gen but I may be wrong.

    Sorry, but it's not possible.
    I would keep iOS 4.2.1.
    And: iOS 5 needs more space as 4.2.1 so it would not be an advantage for a 8gb device...

    No. =.= if you couldn't get 4.3 and past then you certainly can't have 5.0

    Sorry, but no.

    Last supported FW:
    1G: 3.1.3 [8, 16, 32]
    2G: 4.2.1 [8, 16, 32]
    3G: 5.0+ [32, 64]
    4G: 5.0+ [32, 64]

    They never made an 8GB iPod Touch 3G.
    Apple kept on selling the 2Gs they had lying around, and pretended nobody would notice...

    YES there is a way, what you are talking about is whited00r and YES they will give you a ipsw that is 3.1.3 disguised as iOS 5.0 for your 2G But you need an MB model
