    Specs:
    iMac 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, OSX 10.6, 1TB Storage
    Updating 1st Gen to iOS4
    Are there any alternative ways to get the firmware on there? Or any alternative firmwares?

    I imagine someone will come up with a way, but honestly, you won't want it.

    I put the full version on my 3G and it was pretty laggy to the point of being really annoying. I imagine in a first gen it would be unusable.

    I put IOS 4 on my 3g(8g) and it runs fine for me. I just have 2 make sure that I keep my charger with me cause it does drain battery a lot more. Even if I do make sure that I close all apps.

    Lots of bugs on my second gen iPod Touch, and of course, extreme battery drain issues. I never had my iPod Touch crash before I upgraded to iOS4 and now regret having done so. Clearly QA was not a high priority for older devices.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    A 1st generation what? If it is a 1st generation iPod Touch, the highest iOS you can go is 3.1.3.
