Title says all. I'm supposed to buy an iPod Touch 1st generation from my friend, and I have my toolkit set up (Spirit and a CFW just in case), and I want the new Cydia on, namely for performance, but I'm unsure if it works. Well, you guys are smarter than me on many levels, please and thank you for the answer. =]

I believe it should work fine on a 1st Gen iPod Touch (although not a 1st Gen iPhone!), and I know it works on at least going back to iOS 4.1. I'd just give it a try and see how you go, I'd be very suprised if it didn't work ok.

Thank you , greatly appreciated! Since I'm gonna jailbreak the iPod, as I download all my SBSetting tweaks, I want to be able to get them all in one shot - the earlier Cydia's 3 item queue bothers me greatly.

I jailbroke my dad's 1st-gen touch back in June/July, and cydia worked fine, on the latest version out at that time. I don't know when the current ver was released, but like Endareth said, go for it. ;)

Just gonna answer my own question - Yes, it works, and so does 1.1.1, but there is a Respring bug where as when you Respring from a package install, you stays in the Respring - hard reset is required. :3

I did extensive research on this on my old iPT 1 iOS 3.1.3. I found that the latest version that worked for me was 1.0.3221-72. The two later 1.0 versions didn't work: 3222-73 and 3366-1. I never tried 1.1.1.
