Actually, if you're willing to do a bit of hacking, there's a way to enable both backgrounds and multitasking on the 3G.

While I don't doubt that things are more cramped on the 3G's 128GB of RAM compared to the 3GS' 256MB, it seems that Apple could just be holding the 3G back for marketing reasons.

Free for iTouch 2G and 3G (generation)(sorry touch 1G is out of luck.. same as iPhone 1G). I believe at least the Touch 2G will not get the multitasking (not sure about touch 3G). However you may still have few upgrades like iBook, .....

Updated my iPod Touch, some nice little extras but its like Apple throwing a small bone to a anger dog to keep it quite for a bit. How about unlocking the rest of the hardware options!?!?

Got it running on my second gen Touch. Can't say it's particularly changed my experience in any meaningful way (as it indeed doesn't get wallpapers/multitasking), but the folders do their job.

Actually its most useful feature is that I get to bother my dad because his 1G iPhone didn't get a single scrap. :p

Dude, just fire up iTunes 9.2 on your PC and it'll ask if you want to download if your 3GS is plugged in via USB. Duh.

It probably won't do anything for the "iTouch," considering that isn't a product made or marketed by Apple.

Marcus,

I jailbroke my phone twice and downloaded Backgrounder and enjoyed what little pleasure it gave, but it caused my phone to crash and I ultimately had to restore it...twice. Anyhow, I am not to big on multitasking ATM.
