    Hi, it's my first post here. I was wondering if there was a new firmware for the 20gb 4th gen ipod, not the color screen one...

    I too want to have many clocks like the nano users & combination to secure my stuff...
    How come they don´t update it anymore?

    Thanks

    There is no new firmware as yet, but that's not to say Apple won't release something soon. However, it kind of makes sense that Apple don't give us regular 4G owners the clock etc. so that there's just one more reason for us to update our iPods. :(

    Yeah...for God's sake, Apple, the 4Gs were barely more than a year old when you killed them!!!

    Inmediately after i wrote that first post, i plugged my ipod and popped up a message on the computer saying there was a new version of ipod updater.

    But then when i read what it was all about all ilusions broke into pieces:

    One thing i'd love to have in my ipod is an option to turn off in x number of songs instead of a time-counter... :cool:

    I'm still waiting for Lyric support on non-nano iPods.

    Also when are they going to enable folder support on the iPod?
    What's the point of having either of these in iTunes if they don't transition over to the iPod.

    I'm waiting...

    Hope these guys (iPodLinux) will have support for the 4G ipods soon. Looks like much more/better options than the current firmware

    the nano will lead the way for a long while in terms of firmware, its all buying/selling tactics. Seeing as we are on this side of christmas...

    They'll be updated eventually but it'll probably be another few months yet. When they released the 4th Gen iPod, it took them a while to update the firmware for the 3rd Gen ... adding the "Music" menu and "Shuffle songs".
