Firmware on iPod Classic 6G
I have a sixth generation iPod Classic (80GB).
It's currently running iOS 1.1.2 and formatted HFS+.
I want to know whether or not it is possible to flash the iOS with 2.0.4 as per the latest version for the 6.5G Classic.
Just to be clear, what I'm asking is "Has anyone flashed a 6G classic to 2.0.4 without bricking it?", "Are there any benefits of doing so?" and "What improvements are included within 2.0.4 that doesn't exist in 1.1.2?"
What I'd really like to see is the "Sort Artist" etc. functionality from iTunes propagated down to my iPod so that I don't get the same artist with variations appearing a thousand times on the iPod. Does 2.0.4 handle that?
Greatly appreciate any (useful) responses.

Though, no luck yet finding a trick to transform a 6g into 6.5g classic...
good luck !

two "classic 6G ipods" are different - why? How change?
I bought two 160gb [yah right, the biggest, anyhow], one in 2012, and one 2007. They are both considered "classic 6G ipods", when I submit the final 3 characters of their serial numbers, "9ZS" and "YMX," resp., to <http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/>
They do not behave the same [five years, doh!]: most irritatingly, the old one doesn't synch the same as the new one with my iTunes library [vers. 11.0.2 on OSX 10.6.8]. Rather than explain what's irritating, I'd just like to know if I can get software or firmware for the old one that would transform it to like the new one.
Also, is there a site out there which defines "ipod generation" and how it is that two ipods bought 5 years apart are the same 6G generation.
