i have figured out how to get the latest software for ipod touch without paying for it. you have to make sure you back up what ever is on your ipod touch!!! heres the instructions..... before you begin, go to your computer itunes files and delete the firmware ispw file from your computer!! you have to do this or this hack wont work!! 1. go to settings-->general-->reset-->erase all content and setting 2. now the ipod will start erasing the files, in the middle of the process, restart the ipod by pressing on the sleep/wake button and the home button simultaneously for few seconds. 3. when the ipod restarts, it will say connect to itunes 4. when you connect to itunes you will notice it is in recovery mode, and you will have two options update ipod, and restore ipod 5. hit restore ipod, and it will ask you if you want to update and restore. hit yes and it will offer you to download 2.0.1 6. hit accept and download the software and it will install it on to your ipod, and ur done.
