Before we start, I must tell you my Mac runs on Leopard 10.5.1, my iTunes is version 7.6 and I love Dashboard Confessionals. My two months old iPod touch came to me with 1.1.2 firmware, and had since been jailbroken to 1.1.3 and running just fine (except it won’t play DRM-ed MP3 from iTunes Store.)

Give it a shot if you own the 32GB model. I can’t since I have the niffty 8GB iPod touch.
