View Full Version : 5G iPod Firmware Update 1.2.2

Nov 13, 2007, 06:05 PM
So did anybody get firmware update 1.2.2 for 5G iPods last night? I was on my laptop which still has iTunes 7.4 and Mac OS X 10.4.10, and iTunes informed me there was an iPod update for my 5G (not 5.25G or 5.5G) video iPod.

The release notes simply said "Bug fixes"; I downloaded it and installed it successfully, but I haven't seen any changes.

I haven't seen any reports on this, searching the entire forums for "1.2.2" came up blank, and there's only two pages (http://www.bumpershine.com/2007/11/13/ipod-122-firmware-update-for-5g.html) I could find on Google that mentioned it. Submitted a story to MacRumors earlier today, no post yet.

There seem to be problems with the update not showing any songs or videos if you're running Windows and an old version of iTunes, but upgrading to iTunes 7.5 fixes the problem, according to this Apple Support discussion thread (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=5843843). Windows 2000 users seem to be left out in the cold, though, and the only recourse is to downgrade to 1.2.1.

For what it's worth, I'm not having any problems, but again, I haven't noticed any changes either.
