How can I upgrade my ipod from version 1.1.5 (4B1), to a iOS5 on a 8gb pod?? I have no problem paying the $$ to have it upgraded.

The hardware doesn't have the oomph to run it. – abc905 Nov 22 '11 at 13:56
Or in other words: The upgrade will cost you $199 (or more) and Apple will be generous and give you new hardware for free :-) – patrix Nov 22 '11 at 20:07

You can't. Your model does not support iOS 5. No amount of money will help you here.
