    I followed the instructions at the iPod Touch support site. I have iTunes 9.2 installed, I check for updates and it tells me that I have the latest version 3.1.3. Why can't I get iOS4? There are apps that I want to use! Apple wants to charge me $29 for me to ask them the question.

    Have you tried just downloading it off the Apple site?

    Which version of iPod touch do you have?

    (Settings > General > About > Model Number)

    That it is a second-generation meaning you should be able to update.

    Can you try downloading the firmware directly and pressing the ALT button when you click the update button in iTunes?

    I just get the same message. The ALT button didn't seem to make a difference to the behavior.

    You didn't download the firmware onto your computer - use this link to find the firmware of your device and download it to your computer:

    Well, that was fun. Had to download it twice because the IE downloaded file wasn't recognized. The same file downloaded via firefox was fine. However, when I went to update (BTW: it is the SHIFT key not the ALT key that forces the update), I get a message saying that the firmware file is not compatible. *sigh*

    My husbands ipod was stolen last week so he went out an bought a used iPod Touch and he is already up and running.

    Better you stay with 3.1.3 because iOS 4 for Touch 2G is a painful mess. What I mean is, you get only 10% of the new features, and, it drains the battery more than watching video all day...

    If it says its incompatible, you downloaded the wrong firmware file.

    Sorry, I thought you were on Mac, but turns out you're on Windows.

    Or is the back completely flat or is it somewhat curved and rounded (i.e. will it sit flat on a table or will it wobble?). If it is flat, then it is 1st generation

    Weve already confirmed it was second gen, at least i think we have.

    OP, iOS4 isnt really a big deal; you wont get most of the benefits from it anyway.

    The 8GB and 16GB 1st gen released in 2007 were MA models, the 32Gb 1st gen released in 2008 was MB376LL.

    ...:mad: @ :apple: for releasing that 32Gb model so close to the 16Gb model when they said it was going to be at least a year before they did that...:mad:
