    I have updated, but all it lets you do is play games, no sign of any of the other features :(

    Oh well, so much for hoping. I would have been a hard sell for me to upgrade my 5G at this point, even if it had been some sort of fancy new widescreen iPod with a lot more storage. But to upgrade my thin 30GB to a new thin 30GB for searching and gapless playback -- well, no.

    Exactly where are they? I see no options for gapless playback and I see no smart search menu item anywhere.

    Where are you getting version 1.2?

    My iTunes 7 downloaded with version 1.1, there's also nothing in software update or on Apples website.

    i watched the video of where smartsearch should be on the apple website and it is not on my updated 5th gen ipod, so I guess you must mean smart seacrh works with itunes not ipods.

    New features in 1.2:

    - Gapless playback 'out-the-box' - no menu option.
    - Brightness setting.
    - 'Smart Scroll' (I made the name up) - when you spin the wheel, it jumps to a certain letter, 'J' for example, so you don't have to go through the whole alphabet. And it displays the letter on-screen.

    I'm hoping Apple won't let its loyal customers down, and will let us older 5G owners update our iPods with the other new features, upon the first firmware release for the 'newer' iPods.

    no sorry IMO unless you upgrading to an 80gb ipod, there is not much point changing a 30gb for a 30gb just to get it

    The "SmartScroll" thing works, as well as brightness and games, but where is smartsearch? How are you supposed to get to it?

    Click on iTunes in the menu bar then select "Check For Updates" it will tell you the iTunes is up to date and then prompt you to update your iPod. Oh yeah make sure your iPod is plugged in.

    I updated to 1.2 and my movies disappeared from my iPod and now refuse to sync. They no longer play in iTunes 7, either. :confused:

    If smart search is all they held back, I can live with that. Sometimes they hold back key features until it's obvious that all that might quickly upgrade for the new features have probably done so, then they release the key features in firmware. Honestly, I've never said, Oh this thing needs a search function.

    OK, I've got gapless. After 3 frickin' years of sending feedback to Apple, I've got gapless! :)

    I am SERIOUSLY chuffed with this! Hours of fun! Has anyone else studied the time counter as the tracks merge into each other? According to the counter, the second track appears to start around one sec before the first finishes, although the aural effect is seemless. Top banana.
