First-gen iPod touches gain VoIP through 2.2 code

First-gen Touches get VoIP

The v2.2 firmware for the iPod touch should enable the use of VoIP accessories on first-generation players, claims Macity. While the update primarily enables the use of voice headsets by Apple for recording, it is also possible to use third-party recording gear attached to the dock connector; this, in turn, is said to allow the VoIP functionality. Where hooking up accessories meant for Nanos and regular iPods would normally display error messages, the warnings are said to have disappeared.

After connecting a microphone such as Macally's iVoice Pro, Touch owners must then find a title from the App Store which does not discriminate against first-gen players, such as the NimBuzz VoIP app. Recording is theoretically possible, but without jailbreaking, there are said to be no free voice recording tools that recognize a dock-connected mic.

    Belking TuneTalk Stereo

    TuneTalk Stereo works with iChalky (makes him dance) and a program like Shazam - I forget the name. I have not been able to find a voice recording program though that I am allowed to download. have started emailing developers asking them if they can adjust their download priveledges.
