• iPod Touch 1G's App Store crashes?

    From Ant@21:1/5 to All on Wed Aug 22 15:59:34 2018
    Earlier today, I booted up my decade old iPod Touch 1G from the closet.
    After power charging its battery back to life to 100%, I went to play
    with it. However, its App Store app crashes. Does anyone else have this
    problem too if they still have it?

    For what it is worth, I have a 2nd gen (ios 4.2.1) and the app store app
    works, but nothing really to download, "incompatable with this ipod" for
    pretty much everything.

    Can still copy stuff to it from iTunes.

    Hmm. I guess only iPod Touch 1G's App Store crashes and is fully
    unsupported. :(

    Describing it as an "iPod Touch 1G" is only part of the question. Which
    OS version is it running?

    The original iPod Touch shipped with iPhone OS 1.1, and there were paid
    options to upgrade it to iPhone OS 2 and iPhone OS 3.

    App Store didn't exist until iPhone OS 2, so the questions are whether
    it is running 3.x, and whether it is running the final update of the
    major version (2.2.1 or 3.2.2).

    You should be able to see which version it is running by going into
    Settings > General > About, or by plgging it in to a computer running
    iTunes.

    Once you know the version, you need to find someone with an original
    iPhone or iPod Touch running the same version (or an iPhone 3G/3GS or
    2nd/3rd generation iPod Touch that wasn't fully updated) and see whether
    App Store works for them. Finding someone is going to be the problem.
    I'd start with a Google search for any complaints with similar symptoms
    in recent years.

    The problem might be that App Store no longer supports some very old iOS versions (I don't recall seeing anything about that). The chances of it
    working are better if your iPod Touch's OS is up to date.

    It could just be a problem with your iPod and it needs to be erased and restored using iTunes.

    The latest one: iOS v3.1.3.


    The original iPod Touch shipped with iPhone OS 1.1, and there were paid options to upgrade it to iPhone OS 2 and iPhone OS 3.

    Paid? Seriously?

    That is why I was asking in here, Apple's forum, and Reddit. ;)

    Yeah, if no one has this issue. :(

    yep. blame sarbanes-oxley, which forced them (and others) to charge for
    'new features'.
