If you update a 4th generation iPad touch, it can only be to iOS 6.1.5. You can't update to any but the latest iOS version.

Not all generations are of the same size. The iPod Touch 2nd and 3rd Generation are nearly (if not completely) identical in physical dimensions and appearances AFAIK. The height, width, depth are all the same, the weight is the same. The only difference is the increase in RAM and a slightly better processor. An analogy for the iPod Touch 2nd and 3rd gen is like the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. The physical appearance is near identical with respect to the front and back (not including the aluminum bezel since that's the method of differentiating a 4 and the 4S), so cases are generally tagged "iPhone 4/4S"

The iPod Touch 4th Generation is slightly slimmer, slightly lighter, but also slightly longer. Cases are differentiated between iPod Touch 1st Gen, iPod Touch 2nd/3rd Gen, iPod Touch 4th Gen, and the iPod Touch 5th Gen, so there are essentially 4 tiers of classification for cases with respect to the iPod Touch. If you see a case that says "iPod Touch 2nd/3rd/4th Gen", unless it's a fairly loose/flexible soft case, it won't be compatible with all 3 generations.

So i need 2nd/3rd Generation Ipod touch cases then ?

Thank you for the info above, loads of info.

Fon't think an iphone 4/4s would fit as its more square.

Can someone or yourself confirm the above please.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards.

Al.

Yes. Just be wary of cases that states that it's for any and all iPod Touch generations, or 2nd - 3rd and 4th generations.

If it was a gummy/flexy case, it may work but it won't be a tight fit. For hard cases, they won't work

Both 3rd Gen 32gb ipod touches succsefully JB ;-)

Heres a question though:

Although I am running 5.1.1 I can only install a Piracy Resource
There is an option for 5/6 but won't install should I be running A Piracy Resource ? If so I suppose i will need to find a repo that just has A Piracy Resource and not A Piracy Resource.

Kind regards once again.

Al.

iPhone Forums in no way supports piracy or any methods used to acquire pirated apps. You will receive no more help here.

With that, this thread is now closed!
